We have had a fun past couple days here at the Crow house. We got to celebrate Christmas a little early since Jason will be leaving very soon and will not be here on Christmas Day. I wrote a letter to Santa asking if we could celebrate early so that Jason could enjoy it with us. Of course Santa agreed and made a special trip from the North Pole to our house this past weekend. Here are a few pictures from our Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
My honey and me :)
Santa brought Madeline a double jogging stroller...now she can be just like mommy :)
Jack got a light saber...when he ran to see what Santa brought the first thing out of his mouth was "Santa's been here, where did he leave my light saber?" I am so glad that Santa brought one...
Jack asked for one of these so he can be just like his daddy.
Madeline and Olivia...the Olivia stories remind us so much of our Madeline
Jackson and his soldier
Our little pirate drummer :)
Santa should have just brought Madeline boxes. She had more fun in the boxes than with anything else.
Madeline is fixing up some breakfast for her babies Eunice and Carli.
Jason seeing what Santa brought him.
Madeline got a tri-cycle
After all the presents were opened, Jason and I prepared a big meal. It was great. We all stayed in our pj's all day and watched Christmas movies. I am so thankful we were able to have this time together.
I am also very thankful for a program called Heroes at Home. This is a program through Sears that provides families of deployed soldiers a gift card (funded through donations by customers) to use at Sears stores. We were one of the families selected to receive a gift card. This card has been such a blessing to us and we are so thankful for this program and the generous donations by those customers.
I am going to try and update again in the next few days before Jason leaves so be sure to check back in :)
