Christmas 2015

The line-up in Mom and Dad's room before going downstairs to "see if Santa came."
The three oldest got their very own laptops.
Cannon was pretty psyched to get Super Smash Bros.  George was happy to get a Lego Batman game as well, but apparently, not quite as happy as Cannon.
My absolute favorite picture of the day-- a happy Peter!
Clark got a new office chair and a Venus fly trap.
George got some pretty cool stuff for Christmas, but he says this football is his favorite.
Elinor in her adorable new overalls.  
It was a rather high-tech Christmas for the kids.  Bethany and Elinor got Kindle readers.
Several kids got MP3 players.  One of the big hits has been the Magformers.  They are magnetic shapes and they are pretty fun to play with.
Uncle Abe was Mr. Fun with the cousins.
We enjoyed having Chip and Laura's family with us.
Abe's traditional British fried breakfast on Christmas morning.
Matt and Misty, Brig and Dev, and Grandpa joined us as well.
The founder of the feast. 
We had quite a bit of fresh powder in the morning, so some went out to play in the snow.
There was lots of Rock Band throughout the day.  We used to have Rock Band, but life in the Fox home took it's toll and many parts got broken or lost.  Santa found a used set on KSL for us and it has delighted the family once again.
George liked his calculator/ cash register.  I guess I'll have to hide it when the kids are working on their math.
Aunt Misty is so fun.  It's no wonder her nieces adore her.
George and Eli playing Magformers.  Considering they are 4 and 5 years old, they got along pretty well all day.
Forts built from the Fort Kit my friend and I created.  Faith is already asking for more parts for her birthday.
I absolutely LOVE the week in between Christmas and New Years.  I love kids contentedly playing with new toys.  No pressure to buy anything.  No pressure to do school.  No pressure to go anywhere.  Everyone is just happy to be together.  So lovely.
It was a very merry Christmas.
