Christmas 2009

We really had a great Christmas this year. Ramsey is beginning to get the concept a little and simply having him brings back all the magic of Christmas we adults shed little by little as we grow up. This year was just as fast paced as years past and when the holiday was actually over we were exhausted but really thankful we have such wonderful families who want us to be part of their lives, especially at the holiday season. Ramsey seemed to love presents and wasn't sure why he got so many but he was not complaining one bit. He got tons of books, toys, clothes, movies, art stuff, and so much more. Here are some of the highlights of the Rowell Christmas in photos...

Paige and Ramsey reading one of his new books. Paige and Ramsey are hilarious and argue like siblings.

Mom, Morgan, and Paige came to our house for Christmas eve. That is our time to do gifts, games, and snacks. It was fun and very relaxing:

The next morning after we had some quick family time to ourselves we headed for Cope's parents where his sister and her family were there. It was so nice to spend time with them and even though the time was fast and furious is was still very fun. They are moving closer this next year (they are stationed in Kansas right now) so we are excited to see more of them:
Miss Mattie:

Ramsey and his loot:

This kid was so wound up all day. He had to take 20 minute power nap in the car that only gave him that much more energy. He was in a great mood and super silly all day:

That evening was my favorite Christmas tradition, the annual ornament swap with Cope's extended family. Here is Elijah and Ramsey playing.

There get to be more kids each year and it is so neat to watch them interact with each other. Ramsey loved it! How we got 7 kiddos sitting on the couch was the true Christmas Miracle:
Ramsey on drive home that night. So sweet!:
