The kids could hardly contain themselves this morning.. they were SO excited to open presents! We had hoped the late night with the Bjorge's would mean we could sleep in a little bit. Yeah.. right! They were up at 6:30 ready to go! It is Christmas, after all!!
Trying to be patient...
Fine, mom... ONE picture! You can see how much they wanted to post for me..HA!
The pomegranate tradition continues...
Stocking stuffers were a hit! I found a small pink and jeweled mirror at Peir 1 for $1. She LOVED it!
They were pretty excited about their new stuff!
The "group" gift. They both LOVE the mini trampoline!
Putting this thing together was NOT a highlight of my morning..HAHA!
Daddy put this together for the boy!
Testing out his new audio headphones..
Later in the afternoon, Doug's brother Don and his family, as well as his Aunt Mary, came over to celebrate with us. It was SO great to spend time with them and we had a lovely, lovely time. So lovely that I was so busy enjoying myself and my family that I didn't get many pictures.
Showing Aunt Mary some of their new things
Our nephew Greg (8) LOVES our go-kart. He really wanted to ride it in August when they were here for a BBQ, but there were just too many people here to do it safely. Well.. this time he brought his helmet along and was READY! Doug charged up the batter enough for him to ride for a little while, and it was, according to Greg, "the BEST Christmas present EVER!" He also told Doug that all he wanted for his birthday (in June) was to come over and ride some more. We love this kid!!
The day went by quickly and since my kids were running on little sleep and lots of excitement, they were more than ready for bed! I think we all went to bed with full hearts and smiles on our faces.
