Christmas Day

Christmas morning the kids were up bright and early. Santa wraps the doorway into the basement to ensure no peeking occurs before parents are awake.

Taking in the goods after having busted through the wrapping.

More Barbies and a house! YES!! (She was excited about these, but honestly I think the thing she loved most this year was her new pink sheet set for her bed. I got a great big hug and kiss for those!)

Star Wars, Star Wars, and more Star Wars for this kid. (And some legos.)

Roller blades and Speakers for her MP3 player.

I think I've awakened to sounds of rollerblades in the kitchen all week long. She is in love.

Giant dolly and horse for Halle, Lily Anna and Cooper Cream. (She loves them, but I think the zhu zhu pet is the favorite.)

I think the kids were almost more excited about their gift for Johnny than anything else. He was hilarious waiting for them to open it. He just knew it was for him.

And he played with his giant tennis ball all day long. SO funny!

A few rounds of Beatles Rockband and then it was time to head to Grammy's.

Silly Carter....still in his Christmas Eve jammies....which I just peeled off him tonight to put in the washer. (Yah....it's the 29th....don't judge me.)

Little Santa Baby with her bag full of goods.

A quick family shot while we were all together...and not wearing towels on our heads.

The highlight of the night were sleds from Grammy and Grampy.

Who needs snow when you can just go down the staircase instead? And only one injury to report, Halle broke or sprained her poor little pinky toe. But oh what fun they had.

We had a lovely Christmas and feel very blessed and thankful for all we have. Hope your holiday was just as enjoyable.

I love the idea of wrapping the door to ensure no peeking! I am going to have to think about that for next year. Is it too late to start a tradition like that?? What did Santa bring for you??

The door wrapping idea is a great one!... It looks like a wonderful Christmas. We could of used one of the sleds during our Christmas. The stair sledding would of been one of my favorites things to do too...

Seriously - the thing I noticed first was the plethora of plaid pants in those Christmas morning pics. You're a good mother.
