Christmas 2011

We had a wonderful Christmas this year! We started off the christmas celebrations last tuesday evening with the annual Cowan Christmas party at the barn! It was so much fun and Carl's family worked so hard with all the beautiful decorations and food! We spent the rest of the week preparing for the weekend ahead. Christmas Eve is always a busy day for us but we love every minute. We started the morning off at Grammy and coach's house for breakfast and presents. They always spoil us all! This year they transformed one of their rooms into a huge playroom for the kiddos. They bought a playhouse and bouncer and revealed it to them that morning. Tripp and Kate had a ball!! We will definitely be spending ALOT more time over there;) We love you both!! For lunch, we headed over to Aunt Janelle's house for celebrations with the entire Schindewolf family. We again had lots of fun and tripp and tucker were blessed with lots of fun gifts. We are lucky to be a part of 2 amazing familes:) Saturday evening we headed over to my dad and ginger's for another amazing meal and more fun family time. We were all blessed with lots of great gifts and had a great time! We even had some delicious homeade eggnog...a tradition at dad's. We were exhausted by the time we got home but after we put the kids to sleep we had to prepare for santa! Needless to say Carl and I didn't get much sleep but it was all worth it Christmas morning when tripp opened up all his presents! Tucker slept through the whole process...but next year should be even more fun!! After opening toys and playing for a while, we all got ready and headed over to my mom's house for a yummy Christmas lunch and yes....more presents! My mom and keith spoiled us again!! We were again blessed with many gifts. We really enjoyed spending time with our families and of course stuffing our faces in the process. We are so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives and we love each and every one of you so very much!! I think above all my favorite Christmas gift this year, although a little early, was my precious tucker mason:) We are truly blessed!! Here are some (ok, lots) of pictures....enjoy!
