Merry Christmas!

To all of you from the Willis Home!
We had a very RAINY Christmas week, so I got very few photos that are "share quality".
I did get a few here ya go...

This is Skye and Dayne wearing the critter hats that I crocheted for them. Dayne's is a reindeer and Skye's is a puppy.  I made these for the kids as one of their presents, but I gave them to them early to wear to all of our family gatherings.  Let me just tell you...These little hats were the talk of the town!  LOL.  EVERYONE wanted to see them and oooed and awed over them.  

Here are all 5 of them getting ready to open
 the family gift that Homer left for us. 
Homer is our Elf that stayed with us this holiday season. 
He left Christmas Eve night and left a couple of very sad kids...but made up for that with a farewell gift...
He left us a Snack Pack for a Family Game night!!!
There were 7 giant chocolate bars, 7 packs of Cracker Jacks, a full bag of peppermint kisses (..MY FAVORITE!!!!) two 6 packs of St. Arnolds root beers and a $50 Playstation network gift card.
Oh...and 2 beers for Joe. :) 
They all got excited about this gift from the coolest elf EVAH! (wink wink)

Here they are all getting ready to open a gift from my friend Sheila.
She made them all their own fleece blanket and gave them all a shirt.
>>>The ugly bag that Aubrie's blanket is in is my fault!
I put the packages under my tree too early and Miss LuLu tore into her gift!!! AGH!  
SO, I quickly put it into that bag before anyone noticed and all was well :)

Aubrie didn't much care about the ugly bag though...she just wanted what was on the INSIDE.
She LOVES her Peace Sign Scarf and Peace Tie Blanket from Mrs. Sheila!
She is my Little Hippie!!!!

Here is Christmas Morning breakfast.  The kids all wanted pancakes and they got it!
I also tossed in some Whipped Cream, Blueberries and Strawberries for extra yumminess!

Here they are getting ready to sit down for our Christmas Dinner.
You see Aubrie is wearing her hat?  Well, as cute as it is, I made her take it off because I am a mean mommy and require proper table manners...even on Christmas Day! 

Now, there are other highlights of our Christmas...but I will save those for their own post. 
How about a little teaser to think about...
two words...

Head on over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and Check out my post today!
