Christmas Highlights!

Christmas was a blast this year!  Santa came to our house for all the kids (even Colie Olie...some at Kar's and some at ours) so it was quite the party!  These pictures are just the highlights!  A HUGE shout out to Aunt Shelley, she came to the door at 6 am sharp bearing gifts of sleds for the little boys, a straightening iron (pink of course) for Addy, and gift cards for the big boys.  Santa had stuffed a stocking for her as well and it was so great to have her share this EARLY, crazy and happy morning with us!

About 9 everyone else (grandma, grandpa, grammy, pops, Kar, and Colie) came over for MORE presents and YUMMY crepes!  It was such a great day all the way around!  We are so grateful for wonderful family to share the holidays with!

For dinner we had our traditional Richins Family Christmas Dinner with games, delicious food, and FANTABULOUS company!  I didn't get pictures of the breakfast or dinner because all THREE of my camera cards were full....but honestly, the pictures don't come close to the real thing!  We'll just leave it at, YOU HAD TO BE THERE! :)
