We had a wonderful Christmas this year. We had the kids draw names and it was fun to take them shopping for their siblings. We all received more than our fair share of presents this year as well. Our favorite gift was a kinect system to go with our Xbox-360 we received last year. I can't even describe how much fun it is. It is so much fun for the whole family. Jake can get up there and do his thing as well as anybody. I'm glad we got this instead of a Wii (We had thought of going with that instead). It is way more fun in my opinion. Thanks Mom and Dad! So,without further adieu, I give you photos of our Christmas morning.I have to say, our kids have the most self control I have ever seen. They didn't wake until about 8:30 am and then they waited patiently sitting there staring at the gifts while Randy read from Luke the Christmas story. (My parents gave each of the Grand kids pillow pets for Christmas. They absolutely LOVED them.)
Grandma Bremner gave Lily the Dr Seuss book "There's a Wocket in my Pocket" that came with a stuffed animal 'wocket" she hadn't opened that gift yet in the photo though.
Santa brought the boys the scooters they have been wanting. I think we will keep these inside, because we have had two scooters stolen in the last year. Aren't the boys adorable though?
I got lily a dress up set. she looked so stinking cute. I think it was more for me than for her, but I can say we both had a wonderful time playing dress up. We love to look "pretty."
This is what the room looked like once all the presents were open. I swear it took me two days to get the house back in working condition. Notice the organizer on the bottom right? yeah, that's my new cake decorating organizer. It is SWEET. It's normal to make a cake for new years right? I'm totally planing on it.Merry Christmas!
