Christmas Day 2009

The last 6 months for our family has been a very trying time. Michael lost him job in June and was out of work for 4 months. We have struggled financially since then trying to get back on our feet. We knew Christmas for our family was going to be one of very little, which we were OK with. We just felt bad that our sweet little boys would not be getting from Santa what they asked for. We were so blessed this Christmas with so much giving. Our little boys did not go without, and to be honest got more then I would have liked for them to get. I was thrilled to death Christmas Eve after everything was wrapped and placed under the tree to see how beautiful everything looked and was gitty with excitement to see Lincoln and Logan's faces Christmas morning!!

For at least 2 Christmas's I have really wanted a new digital camera. It never seemed to be in the budget to get a new one. I was really disappointed that another Christmas was going to go by where I was not going to get my camera. Well I have the dearest friend/neighbor who knew I needed and wanted a new one. She took it upon herself to get 10 other close friends of mine in my ward to get me a new camera. She brought it over to us a few nights before Christmas and I was shocked and I am still shocked that I have a awesome new camera. Even my Christmas wishes came true!! Thank you so much Heather and to all the other dear friends I have for making this Christmas truly magical.

Lance thought opening presents was the greatest thing. We loved the paper! When Lincoln took the pink pig out of a gift bag for him his face lite up! He loves soft, fuzzy things. He puts them up to his face and immediately puts his thumb in is mouth!!

After a great Christmas breakfast and fun with the new toys we headed to the rehabilitation center where Grandpa Kirby is staying to wish him a Merry Christmas.

This is just a ramdom picture we took of Lance that we thought was cute. I had so many pictures from Christmas it was really hard to narrow it down.

After visiting with Grandpa Kirby we headed south to Springville to spend Christmas evening with my family. We had a great time and we were all spoiled by my parents. Thanks mom and dad!!
