Here are some pictures from Christmas 2013. I took a bunch of pictures. I'm not going to post them all b/c that'd take up QUITE a bit of space (and it IS May and I feel a little weird posting these so late). Anyway, I tried to narrow it down to my favorites (mainly b/c of McKayla's facial expressions).
Anyway, enough with the explanation, here are the pics. :-)

I only posted one of Chris' presents (even tho he got quite a few) but this one was pretty cool (he basically goes from one gift to the next not leaving much chance to get a "good" picture.....typical teenager LOL).
|Fathead dinosaurs for Chris! Rawr!|
In these next pictures, you'll notice that McKayla has changed into a dress. This isn't normal protocol for us on Christmas morning but there was a reason and you'll see why on my next post. ;-)

I also didn't post pictures of anyone else's gifts. We had a house full with my Mom, Step-Dad, Dad, brother and then my Mother-in-law and Father-in-law came over........and none of them want their pictures taken (although I did sneak in a few b/c Rio was my focus LOL).
Both kids really racked up on Christmas presents. I didn't even show you HALF of what McKayla got and of course Chris got a lot more than just that one BIG item. John and I didn't do to shabby either. :-D
It was a GREAT Christmas spent with loved ones! We all got lots of neat toys and we're STILL playing with them (it is, after all May :-D).
I hesitated even posting these, I mean, it's sooooo horribly late to be posting Christmas stuff when it's May. I'd played around with the idea of post-dating them but then that would get complicated b/c I posted that "Catch-Up" post back in March mentioning all the posts I had lined up. That would mean I'd have to go back to already published posts, re-post with a post-date and then delete the "Catch-Up" post and THEN that'd mean I'd have to post-date all the OTHER posts I HAVEN'T published yet. Figured it wasn't worth it, I mean, what's the huge harm in posting things this late? So it may be a little confusing, especially with Christmas pics and snow pics when it's Spring/Summer but I never claimed to be normal LOL
