Well, 2009 brought the Berry Family another great year of Christmas fun and blessings! Below are some collages of our three Christmases. The top one is from the Berry Christmas with Chuck's family. We did a Christmas Eve brunch and then opened our presents from Grandma Cindy and Grandpa Jack. We finished up by opening up stockings. We had exchanged names and did stockings full of goodies for one another. This was new this year, but really, really fun and I think we will definitely do it again next year! Some highlights for the kids were: Brock - Wii Sports Resort (for he and Kenzie), TONS of football/baseball cards, Axe body spray, cash and a Wal Mart gift card. Kenzie - Wii Sports Resort, Make Your Own Book kit, Zebra robe and pillow, cash, and socks. They got more than that, but those were some of the highlights.Power Wing Scooter, remote control helicopter, iTunes card and LOTs of clothes! Kenzie - Scooter, Madame Alexander doll, bracelet, Miley Cyrus CD and LOTS of clothes!!! these children were certainly lucky this year!
jammies) and put out milk and cookies for Santa. Finally, before bedtime, we read The Night Before Christmas before tucking the kids into bed. At 7:00 Christmas morning we got up to open presents. My parents always join us for this and it has become a tradition to have juice, coffee and breakfast casserole after opening gifts...I love this so much! The pictures of such excited faces show it all! The kids loved their gifts and were very appreciative of them as well. Some highlights were: Brock - DSI, hand-held movie camera, Wimpy Kid book, basketball shoes and clothes. Kenzie - DS, pink camera, toe socks, "beauty box" with girly "stuff", and clothes. I want to post more about Christmas, but this is a great summary of our very blessed Christmas. We had so much to be thankful and to celebrate and we were grateful for every moment spent together! Hope you all had a Merry Christmas as well!
