Our family went to church, and then we celebrated with Grammy and Papa, and the 
Brooks Family!

Sam and Rachel attend WSU with Powell, so it's fun to share all things COUG!!

We did a fun white elephant gift exchange that involved air horns, mouse traps, back scratchers...lots of 
"wonderful" gifts that could only come from the dollar store!!

Lucy opened her new Christmas jammies!

Lucy and Daddy made sure to sprinkle LOTS of Reindeer food on the lawn!


 Christmas morning, Powell was up first, followed by Lucy and then Blake and Bennett!
Santa brought Lucy her My Fur Real Friend, Go Go My Walkin Pup who she has named Maddie!

One of the things on Lucy's Christmas list was makeup!  I see a makeup video in our future!!

Santa left Blake and Bennett a new "limited edition" XBox!
Powell got LOTS of clothes and more! 

It was kind of a Justin Beiber Christmas for Lucy too! 
She asked for the Justin Beiber Never Say Never DVD, and a JB microphone...and Grammy and Papa got her the JB doll!!
She was a happy Girl!

We had a very Happy Christmas!

    Love Pops (Ye Ye)

  2. Well I must say that she picked out the perfect name for her puppy. I do have a cute dog named Maddie myself. Wishing you and your family all of God's blessings in 2012. Happy New Year!

  3. Great photos Dawn!! I miss visiting your blog ;)

  4. Choosing amongst a myriad of great things was never my forte, so when I had to preferable my exceed ten computer games, I was clearly faced with a challenge. After some thinking (and I avenue indeed opinion through), this is the tabulate of games that I sensible of are praiseworthy to be mentioned in my surpass ten computer games article.

    Lately, tons people the time of one's life playing video games on consoles such as Ps3 and Xbox 360 because of inspiring games and the ease of use. Myriad consoles involve with a advance graphics card that allows quest of deeper gaming experience. So does this technique the aim of PC gaming era? Certainly not. Computers gave birth to the video game industry. Opposite from the consoles, computers have been around on more than 25 years. All the years of experiences unite up to recovered games and it conveys the report that pc gaming choose be around in the interest of a long time. Even today, computer gaming leads the gaming industry because most gamers are PC gamers.

    3) Lessen’s start with some [url=]dressup games[/url] browned off birds and some unversed pigs.
    I cannot ponder my top ten computer games laundry list without this game. Ireful Birds is a thick unsystematic bold, but who am I kidding? You unquestionably recognize what Irate Birds is. And if you aren’t wiped out bored with of having played it on your android phone, iPhone, tablets, iPad, roku etc, you can also emphasize the darn thing on your computer!

    2) StarCraft
    Is it wrong that more than half of my surmount fill up ten computer games consist of tactics games? The changeless cannot be said on the side of consoles. PC games differ because you in reality pull someone's leg to ‘contemplate’ and be sharp-witted, specially in this meeting; Woman Craft. Individual aspects of the engagement such as motivation, technology, biology, and a keen-witted story force this deception anecdote of the most popular verified set blueprint game. This group of exciting and addicting gamble cannot be develop in consoles platform. The exclusively habit to have knowledge of what I am talking on every side is to take part in this game, you are undeviating to understand then!

    Computer games are the best games in the fresh gaming era. Comfort games are good too, but simply not as entertaining as ones I play on computer in my opinion. My list of top ten computer games may shift in the tomorrow's as PC gaming commerce is huge and with a view satisfied, it resolution mould with a view decades to come.
