Christmas Fun!

Christmas Eve with Grandpa and Grandma Beatie at Danny and Sonja's
We usually spend Christmas Eve with my dad, brother & sisters, and Beatie & her kids. This year there were 14 adults and 11 kids! The kids always have more fun than we do, but that's what it's all about, right?!

"We should have asked Santa for one of these!"

Christmas Morning at home
In previous years, Robby and I have woke up before Reagan to video her seeing the presents for the first time. But this year Mommy and Daddy were tired...Reagan woke us up about 8:30. She came jumping on our bed, "It's Christmas morning! Santa was here!!". What a cool feeling to hear the excitement in her voice, as it brought back so many memories of doing the same thing when I was little. But usually, Michael beat all of us out of bed that morning.

Mommy should have put a bow in her hair so she could have seen better.

Madison, stacking and organizing her playdoh.

Taylor, loved her new cup!
She didn't want to open anything else.

Four girls playing in the new kitchen Santa brought them.
Christmas night
We spent the last part of the day with my mom, brother, and sisters.
Once again, the girls received many wonderful gifts. We exchange names between siblings, and it's always fun to find out "who had you".

The Kids

Ellie loves to sit with the girls, and the girls love to share, especially Kennedy, who knows she gets the special seat. :) The girls love hanging out with their cousin!

Day after Christmas
We spent Friday at Robby's parents' house opening presents, eating, playing, eating some more, and being entertained by the kids. The kids out number us here, so they usually lead the show, literally. 6 adults and 7 kids!

Merry CHRISTmas!

A very Merry Christmas from our family to yours! We hope this finds you doing well as we get closer and closer to my most favorite time of the year. It's hard for me to believe that it's here. The girls are really getting into it and can't wait to see their faces Christmas morning. This year we've started seeing the love in their eyes when reading about baby Jesus, excitement when opening gifts, and the fear when seeing Santa! Great memories!

After "dropping off the face of the earth" for the last year and a half, my new year's resolution is to start journaling again for our kids, family, and friends. (I'm starting early so I can't make any more excuses!) I truly enjoyed sharing on the website, before and after the girls were born, but soon life got the best of me and something had to give. I'm ready to share what God is doing in our lives with you again. So, consider this your "year long" Christmas card (which we decided not to do this year, sorry!) and the gift that keeps giving!

So, welcome back to the Wells Quads and a Queen!
