Christmas 2009

Hayden got this doll from Santa. It is all she asked for. Originally she just asked for a present but I think her older brother coached her to ask Santa for a baby doll. She loves her baby and everything else she got! I would post more pictures but apparently I was busy playing with my new Christmas present and only took about 5 pictures and most of them were not great... My new toy is a video camera. So at least we got some great video. I hope! I haven't watched it yet. I love it though! We had a wonderful Christmas and I know I truly felt glimpses of the true spirit of Christmas through out the season!

We went to Prineville the morning after Christmas to visit everyone there. It was a lot of fun. Ethan took the Bebe gun he got (no he didn't shoot his eye out!). They shot stuff up, and rode 4 wheelers all afternoon. I don't think I hardly even saw the kids much of the day.
This is my "little" sister holding Ruth. I think Ruth looks like Emily, most of my family said she looks like Brock. I guess she just has very strong Workman genetics because Brock is ALL Workman also! It was so nice to spend time with my sister and visit with her. We don't get to see her much because she lives far away so it was a nice visit.

This is the fun toy Grandma bought Ethan. It is a marble roller coaster. He is having lots of fun with it.

Here are my kids in the Christmas clothes at Grandma's house. I couldn't get a "normal" picture of all of them! This was as close as I could get... so I guess that is about normal. They all looked so cute in their black and red fancy clothes too. It worked out nice because Ruth fit perfectly into Hayden's first Christmas dress which matched the one Amelia wore that year and it fit Hayden this year. All I had to buy was Amelia's dress and new ties for the boys. Brock wore the suit coat that Ethan wore the year Hayden was a baby... Ethan already has a black suit.

I LOVE this last photo of all the kids dressed up for Christmas Sunday. It is so perfect. Good job Mom!

We are a little family of four. said...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Baby Ruth is BEAUTIFUL, but the whole family is so what should I expect! Congratulations, you are a wonder mom.
