Christmas 2007 is over. We think Santa will be stopping by shortly however because
he's seemed to have left the toys for all of the children of the entire
state of Texas at the Kelbaughs.
Thank you to all of our families and friends for all the wonderful presents,
gifts and sentiments. It was a wonderful Christmas.
A side note to our families, we need no more toys until 2018, and
a personal note of thanks to Uncle Nick for the 800lb bag of
blocks he sent that I'll be picking up all over the house until I'm 64.
I know where you live.
We'll try and keep this in chronological order so you can feel our pain..er
sense of joy and happiness throughout the holiday starting with Christmas Eve.

Not so pleased with the menu it seems.

I'll distract Mommy and you grab the big shiny thing.
When do we eat?
Catherine pulling out all the stops with her reindeer disguise.
We ate Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve as we knew that
Christmas day was going to be a bit hectic. In hind site,
this was a great idea however, we waited a little too late
and things got a little..well a picture says a thousand words.
Food. Where is food?
I don't care if this is the best ham on the planet.
After we got the girls down, we decided to open our gifts since
we wanted to concentrate Christmas day on the girls.
Erin got this swell pair of onion peeling goggles
setting fashion trends a blaze all across Texas.
It's SHOW TIME!

What would a couple of Texas girls be without their trusty steeds?

Where to start.
Hey! Look at this. More stuff to make noise with. Hurray!
I hope this goes to 11!
Ooooo! Another noise maker thingy!
Daddy's favorite picture.
(Notice she's still trying to eat her cookie through the hat.)
Ok, after nap time and a change of attire, the girls are back at it.
Even Sadie gets in on the action.
Below are a few videos of the holiday season and
a few that were just left over from the last update.
Be forewarned that a couple of these are large files
and will take some time to download.

This was a nice, calm, quiet

response to "What does Daddy say?"
and "What does Mommy say?"
