Christmas 2008









All the Johnson grandkids.
















We switch every year going to Idaho and California for Christmas and it couldn't be more different. It was Christmas in California this year. After all these years, it still doesn't seem right to me that there is no snow on Christmas morning, there are Christmas lights on palm trees and it is 60 degrees (and that is freezing to my peeps that live there). BUT, we have a blast and the kids CAN go out and play with there new toys so I guess I can't complain too much. Grandma and grandpa got all the grandkids pajamas so we thought it would be cute to get a picture of them all. That was a lot of work, but not as much work as trying to take a picture of the 3 newest additions to the family. Jack was born in February, Emery in March and Maycee in May. As you can see from the pictures, it didn't work out so well. Emery was trying to get away and didn't care who was in her way. We were all laughing at their expense of course.

We made sugar cookies for Santa. Cole licked the knife every time he dipped it into his OWN frosting bowl. We were sure to give Santa one of his cookies..

The boys were spoiled this year. I love Christmas time and I really love the looks on kids faces when they come down the stairs to see what Santa brought them. They were excited about everything they got, especially the Wii. We played a trading gifts game the night before Christmas. There were a bunch of little $2.00 gifts which included a tub of "flarp" (if you don't know what this is, be thankful) and a little fishing game. After the boys came down and saw all of their presents, the only thing Cole was concerned with was the $2.00 flarp and fishing game. If I had only known....
The boys enjoying the Wii. I think it is as fun for us to watch as it is for them to play...
Emery's noise maker...
All Cole wanted was this Flippin' frog game. I have no idea why
and I really tried to talk him out of it, but I
guess santa really wanted him to have it...










My greatest gifts...

I know what you mean - it was fun to have a white Christmas in CT, especially since we never get any snow in NC. Those pics are all so adorable. Emery is such a gorgeous little baby. Happy Bday! Miss you guys!

Hey, we have that flippin frog game and I hate cleaning it up. Those frogs really do flip everywhere! Sorry if he got the idea from playing with my boys.
