Finally Christmas!

The girls first christmas was a white one...How freakin cool is that! I know for all of you that don't live down here in the south that might not be such a big deal!!! Here we were all so excited!! I have to say that everyone in this house needed to have a little Christmas Miracle and we got it!!! We had been having a bad few weeks,nothing was going right. Kinley going to the hospital, being sick, then Madelyn getting it, Family drama and various things going on. I said the tuesday of Christmas if we get snow that is God's way of telling me things were going to be ok!!! It snowed, Thanks GOD I needed it!!! Anyways it felt kinda of like a cheesy Christmas movie but hey it made me feel better! Anyways on the pictures!

The first few are from the weeks leading up to Christmas!

The girls playing in the Christmas tree box. They loved it!!!
Notice one still in PJ's and them not matching! What it looks like around here some of the time!
Madelyn as happy as can be in the box!
No tooth but right after Christmas one started poking out!

Look at those blue eyes!

Sporting their OH so cute shirts made for us my friend Kristi brown!

Christmas Eve! The snow starts. Poppy took the girls out to experience snow....I think you can tell how much they liked it by the picture!

Also I swear they don't just wear those pj's..we just tried to get use out of them during the Holidays!!!!

Madelyn eating part of a cinnamon roll on Christmas eve!
In my defense the Dr told me to fatten them up over the Christmas holiday!

Our tree before the girls woke up!!!

Playing with one of their toys from Santa. I love their sleepy faces in this picture!

Madelyn opening presents with Mommy!

After Christmas at our house we always go to Mimi and Poppy's house still in PJ's and open more presents and eat breakfast!
Kinley helping Mimi open a present! It took the girls a while to catch on.

Madelyn playing with Poppy.

We have lunch with my mom's side of the family but before I wanted to make sure we got a good picture of the girls in snow on their first Christmas!

The girls got to try lots of new food at lunch but here they are eating Cheerios! So the rest of us could eat!
Ok, let me explain these next few...This snowman had Velcro on it's hands. My cousin thought it would be funny to put it around Kinley's stomach...SHE LOVED IT!!! Seriously she crawled around like that for over twenty minutes!!

We have a family tradition of having Christmas crackers and there is always a Paper hat in them.Madelyn would have nothing to do with them but kinley again was willing to wear it!!! All that bow training!
That weekend we had Christmas with my Dad's family! We always have a wonderful time and the girls got some good loving!

The twins with Uncle Ray!
Ok, so this picture is not good but our only one of all of us!
Let me tell you I was lucky to have these many pictures. It's hard to think about what pictures you want while chasing two babies!!!!!

Sporting some of their new clothes from christmas! Thought it was too cute I had to get it in!

Looks like your sweet little family had a wonderful Christmas! And a white lucky! Santa brought B&B the ball popper too and they LOVE it!

White Christmas, you are so lucky! They are super cute in their embroidered Christmas shirts. I can't wait to see them in a few weeks and love on them. We have that same ball popper, and it is still a favorite at our house!

Fun Fun!! Jealous of the snow... we were supposed to get some, but it didn't happen! Maybe next year (doubt it!) Looks like Santa brought our girls some of the same toys ;) Like Kristi, the ball popper is a fav around here, too!
