Lot's of gifts ~ Lot's of blessings

We have received so many blessings this year. We have been wrapped in love and generosity. Overwhelming.

It's a Wii!!!!!!! (from Grandma Katie)

It's a cute baby!!!(from Courtney and David)

Lunch with family & friends (from Claim Jumper)

play time with friends (from being 9 & silly)

Christmas Eve with cousins & almost cousins (from Uncle James - who is getting married soon!) Puppies on Christmas morning (always sweet & naive)

Presents under the tree that you have no idea how they got there (like the Coach purse for me that magically appeared - no one seams to know................mystery)
Christmas morning in our PJ's at Grandma's house with everyone (Chaotic Fun)
sweet letters from DJ to each one of us (pure & heartfelt)
pillows made of John's ties (from Lindsey with Tears, Love & Sincerity)
Grandpa Rojas (who tried really hard to be Merry and hide his grieving)

The Rojas Cabin (my escape)

Wiiing at the cabin.......... (addicting)

I swear we did do other things (like snowboarding, eating, shopping, pool at Chad's and ummmmm wiiing!!) Never mind the fact that Amber had to come take the remotes out of me and Cathi's hands at 1:00 in the morning cuz' we weren't gonna stop!!!

To end the 07' Christmas season - a night out with the girls to see the "Rockettes" Christmas Show (which was surprisingly good).

I am most thankful for the gift of Christ and what a difference he and his promises have made in my life. He gives me hope, peace, and comfort ~ Overwhelming.

Looks like lots of fun! Our neighbors got a wii for Christmas and are having a wii olympics tomorrow. Lance and the two older kids went to try it out on Friday night - my husband is addicted -he keeps talking about it even though he was sore after tennis and boxing :P can't wait to try it out.

I loved all the photos - thanks for sharing. Oh and score on the coach purse - how fun when things just happen to appear under the tree :o)
