Kate was the first to wake up. We were so exhausted that we brought her one present and let her play with it until the boys awakened. Thankfully, she kept busy for another 2 hours before it was time to tear through the wrapping paper. Incredible!!!
Thank you, Berryhills... I love this tradition!!!
Nothing else compares to that excitement those first few moments after the paper's been torn, the Santa hat's been thrown and even the sacred blankie has been discarded to see what awaits them inside. Even the cinnamon rolls taste sweeter on December 25th!
Kate immediately ran to get her doll to try out the new horse Santa left.
Luke was more excited about his letter workbook he found in his stocking than the huge train set that Santa so carefully set up for him. He wanted to get right to work. We have a fanatic on our hands.
Jake. Let's take a moment to just notice the facials of Jake on Christmas morning. Go ahead, scroll right on through. He is simply classic.
I think Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were a huge hit this year :)
Jake was ecstatic when it came time for Kate to open her present from him. He couldn't wait!!!! It had to be the very first gift to start off Christmas 2013.
It was perfect, Jake! Just what your big sister wanted.
Love this one
"MY FWASH CAWD WETTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Let it be known that he sleeps with his flashcard letters almost every night.
And those facials are still going...
Kate made me wait until the very end to open up her gift. She could barely contain herself. Me too!!
LOVE my new earrings. I wear them every day. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Cutest bear I've ever seen...although, what's with the socks and flipflops?!! She's even more like me than I realized ;)
Yep... now it's Kate's turn to play letters with this guy
The boys are ready for a few projects with Dad and he's ready for a nap :)
What a fun morning! Why not eat a few more cinnamon rolls and make an even bigger mess!!!
It is Christmas after all :)
We are so very blessed.
