Christmas morning...






We had a nice relaxing morning at our house. We opened presents, ate cinnimon rolls, layed around in our new Pj's and then got ready to go to G-ma & G-pa's house. We had a nice day over there and a wonderful dinner. We came home at 6:00 and the kids watched the grinch and then went to bed. Everyone was tired after a long, wonderful day... Now time for the clean up!

The kids were beyond excited! It was a great morning!

Santa definatly came to our house...




When Tristin & Daisy woke up at 4:15AM, they came running into our room yelling, "Mom, Dad, Santa came and he left FOOTPRINTS!" I stumbled out of bed to find the kids examining the evidence left behind. They were in complete awe and I watched as they talked back in forth about it. "It must be soot from the chiminey, look, he left a big glob over here." Tristin said.
As they squealed with delight I reminded them that it was really early and to go back to bed for awhile. (Trav & I didn't fall asleep until 2:00 AM)
I heard them talking in their room and they were so excited. Somehow they managed to wait until 6:10, so we got up and the fun began. It was a wonderful Christmas and we were definatly spoiled. Thank you family for making it so great!

Making Gingerbread houses...






I think we ran out of time when G-ma & G-pa came, because usually we make our gingerbread houses with G-ma, but this year we were solo. The kids had fun like always and Willow was in heaven with a tray of candy before her eyes!

Making popcorn...

The kids were so excited to watch the popcorn & then make it!

Christmas Eve...



It was nice to have a relaxing day at home in our pj's with nothing to do except watch Christmas movies and eat pounds of popcorn! it's our new tradition to make carmaled popcorn on Christmas Eve, so after searching all over for a popper, I finally settled on this beauty. Daisy was SO excited in the video to see real popcorn, it's amazing how the microwave has ruined some of their childhood, convincing them it's the only way it's prepared!
