I hope you all had a good New Year's celebration! We shot off fireworks in our backyard. We had bought a lot for the 4th of July, and still had plenty left. The kids really enjoyed them. They especially liked the parachute men that glide down. They love to chase and see who can catch them.
A lot of the south got a white Christmas. It was kind of funny. I told my cousin up in West Virginia to send me 4 inches of her snow and she said she would, and the next day it snowed! So cool! So, we had snow too, it was just a day late. I think it would have been much more magical to wake up to a white Christmas than a day after Christmas snow. It was still very pretty, just not as special.
Here are a couple pics of the kids opening presents. I think Hunter's favorite was a Tractor trailer with a loader. He has slept with it every night and it takes up half his bed, lol.
Mitchell's favorite would probably be his DSi XL. He has wanted a DS for years and finally got one.
We adults are thankful for some angels who made Christmas even more special for our kids!
