Christmas in January?

Yes, I know I have been a horrible blogger lately!!!! It has taken me forever to post pics of our Christmas celebrations. I have no excuse, I am just lazy! We had a wonderful Christmas with our families, as usual. I love this time of year when we can all be together and enjoy each others company and see our kids play together. We ended up having 5 different Christmas celebrations and lets just say our kids could NOT be any more spoiled! Josh and I also get pretty good and spoiled from our families as well!!! I would have loved to have been able to put together a slide show of ALL the pics I took, but I am sadly lacking in the computer skills department and I need my husband or Katie right beside me to show me how. Maybe next time?! I have posted an outrageous amount of pics and actually wanted to post more, I took a ton of pics this year so we could savor the memories in the years to come. Oh and on a side note: 15 more days until Ruby is here!!!!!!!! I AM SOOOOOOOO READY! :)
When we first arrive at my parents house the kiddos swarm to Uncle Josh (especially Ben), don't worry he never rubs it in! Ha-Ha

Lily and her Mimi, ready to open presents

Do you think Ryder's wagon is a little small? :) He loved being pulled around in this cute little wagon.
Seriously people, do you think we have enough kids around?! And we are still a growing family!!
Bert, Sally, and Dad are ready to dig into their goodies!
My mom and dad got Lily this baby doll bathtub. The shower really works and mommy wasn't so sure this was a good gift to buy, but this is definitely one of Lily's FAVORITE gifts!!!!
Cooper and Lily quickly dug into their gifts that Santa left them on Christmas morning, they were sooooo cute and excited!
Lily really wanted this Sleeping Beauty Barbie!!
Cooper is modeling the OU hat Santa brought him, or as Coop says, "O ME hat" :0)
Family picture on Christmas morning. I HATE pregnancy pics, they are just NOT attractive!!!
At Josh's grandma's house the kids enjoyed playing in this chair. You can use the remote to go UP and DOWN.
Mema had to get in on all the fun!
Here is the Harrel bunch. Josh's dad, brother, uncle, cousins and every ones cute kids!
Josh's mom got the kids a Wii for Christmas, the kids are pretty good. Lily can smack the ball when she plays tennis.

Cooper loves to play and doesn't want ANY help, much to Josh's frustration. I also think Josh gets a little frustrated because he has to wait his turn to play until the kiddos are done. :)
