From Cheryl

It's always fun to get a visit with Mack and Cheryl, and its even more fun because Cheryl is an amazing photographer and takes even more pictures than I do of all the festivities! Here are some of her pics of our Christmas family fun! Plus, I have been wanting to get a good picture of my parents and grandparents and she checked that off my list. Thanks for sharing and come back to visit soon :-)!

FINALLY...it was time to open some presents!!! The kids couldn't wait and were spoiled with cute clothes, lots of Angry Birds items for Preston, Apples to Apples for Ella,a Cake Pop Maker for Addie, legos, craftiness fun and candy. They were in heaven! I got some fun new colorful bowls that I have been needing and wanting and Mike got gift cards to some of his favorite places. I love to see everyone opening their gifts from each other and it was nice to sit back and relax while Cheryl took the pictures!

It was hysterical when Preston just started chugging his M&Ms from Mack and Cheryl :-)!

A couple days before Christmas when I asked Addie what she thought Santa would bring her she told me that the only thing she remembered she wanted was cake pops. I was relieved to hear that my parents had gotten them for her :-). We still need to try them out, but she asks me to do it everyday.

One day while waiting to mail something (we have a USPS at the back of our Ace Hardware store but it also has a gift shop...it's weird), I spotted these gag gift boxes. The iArm stood out to me and had me cracking up so I bought a couple for our two family gift exchanges. I was SO excited about giving it to Mack and he had a perfect reaction. He was totally excited about it despite the crazy pictures (skydiving with your iPad on your arm, a lady washing her car with a big bucket of water on her arm, etc.). I think he was a little disappointed it was just a gift card inside :-).

Bill's face in this one makes me laugh more than anything else. Kayley was admiring her cuteness in the pic from Oliver's blessing day :-).

And with that, the Miner Christmas fun is over :-(.
