We had a great Christmas this year celebrating with the Johnson Family. It was a little strange for us because we live here now and were by ourselves on Christmas morning. I don't ever remember a Christmas growing up or since we have been married that it was just our immediate family. We opened stockings here and had breakfast as a family and then headed over to Travis' parents house to open presents with the rest of the family staying there. This is the first year that the boys were really into Christmas and it was fun to share in their excitement!

Here we are at Tyler's Christmas Program at his school. He did great and it was a lot of fun to see him on stage with his class.

On Christmas Eve morning we stayed home and made some cookies for Santa. I let the boys use the cookie cutters to shape them and then I baked them. Then I let the boys decorate the cookies with icing and sprinkles. It was hilarious watching them. Cooper only decorated a couple because he was too busy eating them!

You will need to zoom in on the picture to get the full effect. This is Cooper showing off one of his cookies. I'm pretty sure 1/4 of the sprinkles went on this one cookie! He is SO proud!!!

Oops! Caught eating another cookie.

Christmas morning- ready to see what Santa brought.

Tyler opening his stocking.

Cooper was excited about his truck!

Shelby opening presents at Grandma's house. She was VERY excited about opening her kitchen.

Cooper opening his present from Uncle Ross. This present caused an immediate fight between he and Tyler. Tyler thought he should have it and we had to have a little heart to heart about sharing before continuing on with more presents.

Uncle Ross also included a Coon skin hat???

Tyler showing off his walkie talkies from Cade.

Grandma and Grandpa gave each of the boys a farm rug and a ton of tractors, combines, cotton pickers, and pickup trucks. The boys were in heaven and we would have to call Tyler in the other room when he had another present to open because he was busy playing with his farm!

On Christmas afternoon we headed over to Great Grandma Johnson's house to eat a delicious dinner and open presents from Santa! This is the second time the boys have seen Santa this year and Tyler has no fear and Cooper is TERRIFIED to say the least!

Cooper worried that Santa is about to call his name. Mama had to go with him to get his present because he was so scared!

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

The pictures and the story are great. I'm so glad you captured the picture of Cooper's reaction to Santa!


It's time for our recap of 2012!  This year has brought some major answer to prayers and we have seen the hand of God move in incredible...
