Christmas Morning 2012

On Christmas morning, we woke up to a WHITE CHRISTMAS!!! After very unusually warm temps all through the month of December, this was a treat!!! What a perfect day for snow!!!

Kyle and I woke up before the kids and could not wait to show them the snow outside our windows! This is Slade in his camo in the snow later that morning.

My photos ended up not spacing out in the correct order for my story, so I will have to do the best I can! So we woke all the kids up around seven so they could see the snow. Santa had left their gifts under the tree. Slade got a new airsoft gun, Gunnar got a little wagon with some goodies inside, and Finley had this note left in gift sack...............

It was clear to us that the only thing Finley wrote on her Santa letter was that she wanted a dog......
All three of them were stunned when they opened the door to the washroom and this ball of fluff ran out! I think Finley was speechless. She's been wanting a dog for a while now. Looks like Santa is in big TROUBLE!!! :)

Christmas breakfast was homemade blueberry muffins, eggs, and bacon.

Gunnar ran fever the entire week of Christmas and he has refused to eat more than a morsel for two weeks now. This is him "eating" his breakfast.

Enjoying the puppy after opening gifts.

Gunnar loved his Fishing Game!

The pup watched Finley open all her gifts.

Several days later, Finley decided on the name Austin. He is 7 weeks old and is a Shorkie. He is half Shih-tzu and half Yorkie.

Gunnar was just happy to run around in the paper and mess with the dog.

This was Christmas Eve-we bribed G into eating a yogurt pop.
