Christmas Morning

We have always stayed at my Dad and Mom's house on Christmas Eve and Santa always found us there Christmas morning. This year we decided that we would stay at our house and see if Santa could find us.....he did. I was sure that Sophie and Sam would be up all night but they surprised us and didn't wake up until 6:15 (Sophie's usual time to wake up). Sophie called Grandma Joan and the whole crew came over. We had a fun time exchanging gifts and then had breakfast.

Grandpa Sam and Grandma Joan gave Sophie and Sam a Wii. The kids were so excited! They have wanted one since last year when all of their other cousins got one.

All Sam wanted for Christmas was a microscope.
Trig in his new car. He thinks he is pretty big in it.

Keith and the kids surprised me with a family calendar I love it!!

The kids and I surprised Keith with a Richards Family 2009 book.

Me and Sophie playing Sing It.

My brother Matt and his wife Barbie. We were glad that they were able to come over in the morning...they usually like to sleep in.;)

My brother Tagg, home from SUU.

Grandma and Grandpa Houser came over with more gifts for the kids.
Grandma Houser made Sophie the cutest Sea horse purse full of fun little treasures!

Sam got a bow and arrow that Grandma and Grandpa got for him at a rendezvous.

They made Trig a cute turtle stool. Now he thinks he can climb up to everything.


  1. What a fun morning! You'll have to let me know how you like the wii fit. Trig is so cute.

  2. What fun. Love the picture of Trig on the sled. Looks like a great Christmas

  3. What a fun Christmas! Great gift ideas for next year... You have such a beautiful home.

  4. The Reese's also got a Wii for Christmas but we did not get the Wii fit. Lucky Richards. That is also not the same Trig that I saw not to long ago. Shame on my brother for making you cut his hair and making Trig look soooooo much older.
