Merry Christmas from our family to yours!!!!

We have been extremely busy around here lately. Everyone is doing great and patiently awaiting the arrival of Santa.We are on our third Christmas tree already (yes 3) the first one had half the lights burned out, so Mom decided we would have a real tree this year for a change, but after only a short time it was getting dried out and with the help of our three littlest ones pulling off lights and ornaments most of the pine needles ended up on the floor, so out the door this tree went lights and all to our older son Jake's house and Dad & Kenzie went to Wal-Mart and picked up a nice white artificial tree.It looked very nice for the first day but now all the decorations are on the top half and the bottom is bare L.O.L. In the middle of all the craziness Mom decides she wants to redo the livingroom with a new color and bead board, not an easy task with the crew of 10 to 20 people we usually have at our house, so it won't be finished in time for Christmas this year (maybe next year).McKenzie got a signed photograph in the mail the other day from her favoritest actress/singer Salena Gomez, she was so excited she was shaking and crying tears of joy. All the other kiddos are doing well, the three littles are going to start speech therapy the first of the year so that will be interesting, Deztany and Andrew are still plugging away at school, some days Dad gets lots of work out of them and other days very little and as for Maggie (Paris) we have a really difficult time getting her out of bed by noon because she prefers to do her schoolwork in the afternoon and evening.Mom and Dad are doing just fine also, some days we just look at each other and shake our heads and ask why, but we wouldn't want our lives any other way because we love all the hustle and bustle of all of our kiddos and grandkiddos in our house.Check out our family picture around the tree, it is impossible to get everyone to look at the camera at the same time.
