Christmas Day

Like every other day in our home Christmas morning was pretty much organized chaos.  The kids slept in until almost 9:30 (I know they aren't normal but we love it).  Hayden was the first up and immediately started circle the tree and asking "Can we open our gifts". Like all mean parents we said "not until your sisters get up".  Sophie joined us about a half hour later and then we finally let Hayden go wake Laila around 10:30.

 Kids were allowed to open their stockings from Santa then we had a bite of breakfast before the real fun began.

The camera is hit with both Sophie and Laila.

Sophie loved her Santa gift.  Although the little mallets that came with it maybe potential weapons so we need to monitor their use.

Grampie helping Sophie opening a few of her gifts.

Laila loves her doll house but we need to work on keeping the furniture in her house not all over mine.

Laila loved helping Sophie open her gifts.

Daddy likes his Tassimo for his office !  Hot chocolate for Hayden when he goes to visit now.

Grampie really loves his new iPad !

Hayden after he just opened his Santa gift - a trip for him and Dad to Disneyland in February.

Then the lucky boy got a laptop from Grammie and Grampie.

This is Mama (& Daddy's of course) shiny new addition to the family.  We have named her teeny weeny  Mac.  She joins "Big Mac" (our iMac) and Quarter Pounder (my MacBook Pro).

We had an incredible day and then finished it with a wonderful supper that night that filled everyones  belly appropriately so we all just relaxed in the evening and played with our new toys.

I hope everyone had a special Christmas day and were able to spend the day with people they loved.

We are very blessed indeed !

Wow Michelle, your children are like mine were when they were young. Mine never got up early on Christmas morning, and they were always game to eat breakfast before opening gifts. Beautiful pics! Have a Happy New Year.
