Just before heading out to our traditional Christmas Eve meal at the Chinese Restaurant (yep; we're missing a couple kids here, but we let them come with us anyway)
Santa brought scooters for Allison and Sarah
Santa brought Harmony a doll stroller and she found the perfect doll to go in it.
I did a bit of sewing this year and made five of the kids personalized superhero capes.
My mom also did some sewing and all the girls got these adorable aprons.
Merry Christmas! (I think this is the only photo of Christmas I'm actually in)
Not pictured: One of my favorite new items from Christmas was a 400-disk DVD player. Since we don't have television except for videos, we've collected a lot of them over the years and they are constantly getting fingerprints or scratches on them. They also take up a lot of space and the kids make a mess with them and sometimes break them. We were able to put all of our kid shows into our player and put the cases away in storage, freeing up a huge amount of space in our entertainment wall for games and puzzles. A few hours with the machine hooked up to the internet and almost all of the DVDs were cataloged. Now, we can search for a movie with a quick scroll through the names and cover photos and play it with a simple click. No more kid scratches.
