Merry Christmas!

I love taking pictures of food! Shawn & Nicole made the dreamy raspberry puffs for Rice Night... a gathering of dear friends that share traditional foods from their childhood. I always bring my Swedish meatballs and my friend Barb provides her wonderful Lefse to wrap the meatballs in. And Steve's creamy warm rice with a pat of butter and cinnamon is simply devine! Miranda agrees!

The children were nestled all snug in their beds...
My kids have slept in the same room on Christmas Eve since they were out of cribs. Nicole was excited to join in the tradition. How cool it was for Randy & I to hear them laughing and talking as we were setting out the stocking gifts and setting up the cameras for Christmas morning.

Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Jesus!

I will be posting about this surprising, amazing gift from Miranda!

Randy got his Pirate's necklace from Miranda... a replica from the movie. Is he one proud Pirate or what!

Nicole & Shawn before opening their stockings. Wiley let her use his stocking!

Looks like you all had a great time. Did the "kids" get any sleep at all sleeping in the same room? Were Tyler's feet out in the hall? What a fun memory! When Tyler and Miranda get married you're going to have to move to a bigger house with a giant bedroom.
