Is it too late for a Christmas wrap-up?

I have been off work since December 23rd, and while I haven't just sat around the house, I haven't been especially busy either. So ye old blog has been neglected. I do have some pretty great Christmas photos to share with you though. We were so blessed by our family with wonderful gifts again this year. Dylan LOVED opening presents, writing a "letter" to Santa, leaving out milk and cookies and opening what Santa brought on Christmas morning. We also had lots of great food and had visitors from Iowa for a few days.

Here's the re-cap:

Dylan came to work with Dave on the 23rd, he had lots of fun helping set up the range and hitting golf balls. But he also came down with a fever, so around lunchtime I picked him up and we headed home. 
The most delicious peppermint bark ever. So wonderful I made it twice! I gave it to our friends in their Christmas goodies and made another batch for our family. 
Dylan seemed to be feeling better on Christmas Eve so we did some yard work in the morning since it was  such a nice day. His fever came back though during his nap so we decided to wait and go to church on Christmas morning. 
As you can see he started to feel better when it was time to open presents! But first he helped Dave start a fire in the fireplace. 
Dylan's 2011 ornament from daycare.
Girl, our elf on the shelf in her last spot of the year!
Dylan and his stack of presents. Nice pants huh, he put them on after his nap when he wasn't feeling good.  Oh well, at least they match his shirt!
A monkey pillow pet!
Dad got new running shoes...
Mom got a cookbook stand
Dylan modeling his ISU jersey on his new Cars mat getting ready to put on his Cowboy boot slippers!

Christmas Dinner, Duchess potatoes, prime rib and green bean casserole with crispy shallots, yum!
Santa brought Dylan a train table! Grandpa Dave also visited Christmas week and brought Dylan more trains for his table!
Grandma Carolyn and Granny B came to our house on Christmas Day and we opened more presents! Dylan got this great cape and mask from his cousins in Minnesota!
Grandma Carolyn opening one of her presents.
We had our traditional Christmas Eve dinner on Christmas Day since Granny B and Carolyn were visiting. It's Cedar Plank Salmon, roasted asparagus and wild rice. Dessert is Chocolate raspberry torte cake. 
Kobe and Peek-a-boo worn out after a long week. I can't believe they are sitting this close!
Perfect weather today to shoot off the rocket from Kyle and Amie!
