Christmas Morning

Santa arrived, filled the stockings; and was pleased with our tree! He left the boys a note, thanking them for taking care of Buddy and Max.

He then ate the cookies and drank most of the milk!

I was really afraid that the morning would be an early one, but the boys woke us at 7:15 am!
They looked in their stockings first, and oooed and ahhed over each little thing.
They then couldn't wait to get Daddy his Superman movie, almonds, and cashews.
(I asked them what they wanted to get Mike, and they picked out "super hero stuff.")

Ryan found an "iXL" under the tree, and was so happy to finally have a hand held learning game like big brother!


Mikey was really into Christmas this year! Paper flew, he yelled, he clapped...so every picture of him was blurry!

This was the best picture I got of him, he is holding his new ornament from Grandma.


Thank goodness, the very last present under the tree....WAY in the back, hidden behind everything else, was the TRASH TRUCK! Cant even imagine what Ryan's Christmas would have been like, had he not gotten a trash truck from Santa Claus.

Ryan never changed his answer, when asked what he wanted this year. In his sweet little 2 year old heart, he just knew that if he really wanted a trash truck, that his wish would come true!

Talk about one little happy boy!



I was the one handing out gifts, and attempting to take pictures, so I am not in one picture!

(One of these days I will remember to hand the camera to Daddy.)

It was a very relaxing Christmas, and I cant remember the last time we didn't have to run all over the place, after opening gifts!

The kids had chocolate chip waffles, and stayed in their pajamas most of the day!

We then had a wonderful ham and turkey dinner with our friends Shelley and Bob!

Thank you to our parents for sending such amazing gifts to the kids, it is a true Blessing to have so much under the tree, when there are many who go without.


Merry Christmas to all of our family and friends. May each of you have a healthy and joyous Happy New Year in 2012.
