Christmas Morning 2013...

Christmas morning came quickly after going to bed at 2:00 a.m!  This picture of our tree makes me laugh.  Having little ones means most of the ornaments are on the top half of the tree! 

But little ones make Christmas so fun!!

Sydney isn't old enough to ask for anything and Amelia asked for three specific things.  A mooshka doll, a floor piano, and a Doc McStuffins clinic.  So they received several "together gifts."  

A "keurig" for their kitchen.

And a "Kitchen-Aid" mixer.

Princess shoes.

I loved watching Sydney open gifts this year.

And this one loves everything and anything you give her!

Sydney is in love with Mickey and Minnie Mouse right now.  She was excited to open a Mickey Mouse car.

They received a few DVDs.   We watched Brave for the first time this week…such a cute movie.

They received a puppet theatre.  This was my favorite thing to give them!  

Have to have puppets to put on a show!

Sydney opening their snowballs.

Amelia prayed for snow but we knew it wasn't going to happen.  So Daddy decided to buy some!

Opening their Mooshka dolls.  I had no clue what these were when Amelia asked for them, months ago.  They're really cute though.  They sing "ring-around-the-rosy" when they hold hands.  You can collect all six of them and they sing together.  

Stocking time!

We were happy that Papa and Granny were with us on Christmas morning!

My girls aren't going to know what to do when Papa and Granny move to their new home.  We love having them here.  

Granny must have been good to receive diamond earrings!

Candy, candy, candy!

I ordered these sweet spoons with their names.  We gave them to my sisters and Mama too. A little reminder to pray for one another as we eat breakfast or stir that creamer into our coffee.

Opening our mailboxes!

Eyes closed as Daddy brings out their last gift.

A Doc McStuffins clinic!  

Love to see those smiles.  

Sweet Sydney Faith. 

I was so excited to set a Christmas table. Nothing fancy but I was able to use my Christmas dishes which I love.

We had this breakfast casserole, cinnamon roll muffins, and strawberries.  I made the casserole up the night before and just popped it in the oven while we were opening gifts.  It will definitely be a Christmas morning must-have from here on out.  It was delicious and everyone loved it.

My blue-eyed baby.  

Daddy, Alex, and Mama.

Sydney Faith loves cinnamon rolls and strawberries. 

Amelia was excited to choose where everyone would sit. :)

Me and my big girl.  Mama's eyes are saying, "nap time is coming soon."

We've had lots of puppet shows over the last few days.  

We have laughed and laughed.  

These puppets say the silliest things!

 It was a very Merry Christmas for The Averitt Fam!

Love to all,

Weaver Christmas 2013...

We celebrated with my family on Christmas Day.  We went to my sister's home for dinner.  It was so much fun!  

Cary received a ukulele for Christmas.

 We sang Christmas carols.  It was fun and hilarious.  

Millie Elizabeth…so cute!

Kandace April.

Jayna and Joylyn.

Joy and Elaina.

Five sweet cousins.

Tyler Chad helping Sydney open her gifts.

A family puzzle from Uncle Drew and Aunt E!

Sydney plays with this crazy puppy every time we go to Cracker Barrel.  She loves it and is slightly afraid of it.  Aunt Joy and Uncle Gerry gave it to her for Christmas.  We have laughed and laughed watching her "play" with it.

Christmas cheese balls!! 

Granny and Papa gave Sydney an Olaf doll!  She loves him. :)

Gerry, Drew, Alex, and Sydney.

Jessica and Elaina.

Tony and Waylon.

Will was so tired by the end of the night.  And I love watching my little brother with his kiddos.  He's a good Daddy. 

We draw names every year and fill a stocking for that person.  Alex had Andrew this year.  They just purchased a beautiful home and we gave them a sketch of it for Christmas.  

Nut of the month club. HA!

Me and my beautiful sisters.  I love them so much.  

I believe this was a 'men with their cats' calendar. HAHA!!  This is what you get when Cary draws your name!

Krystal opening her gifts.

We gave my Daddy a special gift.  His favorite Bible is being held together with duck tape and we're having it rebound for him.  I'm interested to see how they do this.  They said it will take a month to finish it.  You should see his Bible!   There's not doubt it's his favorite book.  

Me and Sara.  We joked that every picture we have of us together, we were either pregnant or trying to get pregnant or just had a baby.  So we had to take a new, non-pregnancy pic! 

Me and my baby brother.  Hugging is his favorite.  And then pictures.  He loves having his picture taken.

Just the eight of us. :)

My family of four.  Take One.

Take Two.

Take Three.

Take Four.

Uncle Gerry is the best.

He doesn't stand a chance up against these guys.

Hope he could walk the next morning.

I love my people.

Love to all,
