Love me tender!

We've been watching ALOT of old movies, including a whole slew of Elvis's finest! In the process my sweetie has been going around singing "Love me tender". Goofy movie, great song! It now seems to be permanently embedded in his brain and he can't get it out. I know how he feels, he's been embedded in my brain for over 38 yrs! So what better sentiment for his Valentine this year. Maybe you can use it too!

PJ's & Presents

Off to bed

Before they headed off to bed where all those visions awaited, they were able to open one present from under the tree. DRATS! Pajama's again!!! How do they always pick the PJ's Present?

Christmas Day at our house
Christmas morning is so exciting! Everyone has to wait in the hall and then run in as a mass. I'm sure no one peeked in the night, right Pace?!!


It's just what I wanted!!!
These little sweeties of mine must have been extra special nice because Santa brought each one of them just what they asked for. SCORE!!!

Asher with his Dino railroad.
Rex got that tablet.
Jordin is going shopping with her new cart and food.
Jett received a crossbow and an air soft rifle. What more could a boy ask for?!!
Shea's very happy with her shiny new Jeep!...
and Pace is anxious to get outside and try out his mini bike.

Papa & Gramma got just what they asked for too, their family around them at Christmas.
And it was the best Christmas ever!!!

'Twas the night before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas in Eagar, you know.
Our "Gangnam Style" dancers brought plenty of snow.
It blew like a blizzard, then Gramma she said,
"Get out the vacuum, then it's off to bed!"

The 2nd Annual Gingerbread Challenge

It's the rematch we've all been waiting for. Can the Barentine's hold onto their trophy for a consecutive year or will it end up in the hands of an even more deserving victor?!! 
The Johnson's talk strategy.
Asher and Shea go for great tasting supplies.
The big boys go for extreme craftmanship.
Team Barentine shows that Spirit of Cooperation for which they're known!


And after serious deliberation by our panel of illustrious judges,
the winner is...
Team Johnson!!! 
The EXTREMELY Talented Brown's Talent Show

First up the Barentine's and a "Gangnam Style Christmas".

The Johnson family was well represented by Rex and Jett who wowed us with their Christmas Light Fantasia!
And a hilarious stand up comedy routine. 
The Trevor Brown family was represented by Lauren & Katie and their rousing  rendition of
"Jingle Bells".
Papa's sweet harmonica filled the room with the sounds of Christmas.
Angels we have heard on high
Our little Angels brought a little Heaven down to Earth with their precious candlelight processional of "Silent Night".

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord
The Nativity

And she brought forth her firstborn son,
 and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger.
 The star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host.
While shepherds watched their flocks by night.
Look very closely on Christmas night
you just might see an angels' light!
