Wamsley Christmas

round 2 of Christmas fun!
we did the Wamsley Christmas on the 26th which was kinda awesome because it made it seem like Christmas lasted longer than usual.
while waiting for dinner to be ready i took a bunch of pictures of everybody.
Steven and Chelsa helping with dinner.

that picture is going on the Christmas card next year!

after dinner we went to do presents!
there was a lot of opening of gifts at the Wamsley house because we do a gift exchange.
we tried to open presents in an orderly fashion but that doesn't work when you have 5 little kids running around.
somewhere in all the excitement i got a few decent pictures.

i had Christy in the gift exchange and not to toot my own horn or anything but her present was the bomb!
first she got cute little bottles filled with what she considers to be the elixir of life and she posed with them awkwardly.

then i got her a little manger scene since she collects them and this one you can paint yourself or have me and Matt paint it for you.
Christmas 2010 095
but the main present was the best!
i worked on it all December and i was very proud of my work.

a quilt made of all her kids' baby clothes!

my parents usually give each family a big gift and this year our gift was luggage.
Christmas 2010 166
every time Matt and i have been on a trip we've had to borrow my parents' luggage so i think this present was mostly for us.
it's even a cool one that comes with four pieces for all your traveling needs!

and i was really happy to see my nieces and nephews loved their pencil cases!
Christmas 2010 121
that made slaving over them totally worth it!
but they didn't love the pencil cases as much as they loved the ZuZu pets!
they played with them for so long!
and Samuel is totally freaking out the entire time!

maybe next year we should just plan on having the Wamsley Christmas the day after.
it makes it so much more fun!
