I am such a slacker!! I can not even believe I haven't posted since Thanksgiving! So much is going on in the Sturkie household I hope I can remember it all.

So where to start?!?

We went to the mountains the first of December and had such a wonderful time, we even got to see some snow!!

My little Bailey Bug was not so fond of the cold!! But was the cutest little snow bunny ever!

Chase on the other hand, thought it was the greatest thing since slice bread!! You can tell he doesn't see snow very often since he was sledding down a mostly grass covered hill! Poor thing:(   But, he loved it!!

Christmas was awesome as always! We have such a wonderful family and just love going to all of our gatherings. We both come from divorced families so our Christmas gatherings always start weeks in advance. Which for our kids means four times the gifts and four times the spoiling!!
Matt's Dads' a week before Christmas is always a good time! Kids are EVERYWHERE...They do the coolest game for us older kids that we always enjoy. Instead of buying us each a gift they buy a bunch of random gifts and we draw numbers and do a chinese auction, then they do the same for 2 sets of gift cards! We have a blast.

We go to my daddy's on Christmas Eve! My daddy never asks for anything and this year the one thing he asked me for was this Gamecock apron! I searched high and low for this thing and finally found one a county over! I had to call them and tell them to hold it for me! He was happy and that made my day:) 
Santa comes EARLY Christmas morning, because we have a busy day of here, there, and everywhere:) Chase summed his Christmas up after opening his presents..."I must have been REAL good Momma, because I got everything on my list" ...Chase's main gift this year was Nintendo DS and Bailey's was her Barbie jeep (which she has yet to figure out yet!)

Then it's off to Matt's Mom's for breakfast (which is always delicious). This is the aftermath of gifts! You can never see the floor and it's complete chaos for 30 min. We have the best time just watching Chase and Bailey tear into their stuff.

And finally, we make it to my Mom's (which is 2 doors down from our house, which is great) Every year She wants a family photo of each of the families! Ours has yet to turn out right and the kids won't stay still long enough  to get another one, so we make due with what we get! This year was no exception (who in the world was that boy looking at, SERIOUSLY) This year before we ate, my step-dad announced that they had a video of all of us throughout the year that we didn't know about. Well lo and behold my mother put together one of those elf yourself videos and I swear I think I peed my pants i was laughing so hard! I wish I could upload it but I have no idea how:(

We had such an awesome Christmas and love every minute we get to spend with our families. Jesus is the reason for Christmas and we thank God everyday for sending his son to forgive us of our sins! 

Well that pretty much catches us up to 2010...
