Get a cup of coffee. Grab a snack. Sit back and get yourself comfortable. This is gonna be a long one, folks.
Because I am going to be long on pictures, I will try to be short on words. No, really, I’ll give it my best.
But first I need to say just a few words about the kids and Christmas. Now that we have two children, I really I looked forward to the energy that is created during the holidays. They didn’t disappoint.
Sam, for the most part, didn’t have a clue what was happening. But that didn’t stop him form having a great time. He saw that Molly was excited, so that made him excited, too. He eagerly sucked in all that Christmas had to offer from shredding trough wrapping paper to gorging on Christmas candy.
It was a wonderful holiday knowing that our family is now complete.
Alrighty, let’s get moving. Here are the pictures. Lots and lots of pictures.
From Grandmom: A cool outdoor game for Molly and a train set for Sam.Both were put into action on Christmas morning. Good thing the outdoor game has a soft ball because it was played in just about every room of the house.
Santa brought Molly the Velveteen Rabbit book and stuffed animal. She said, “I didn’t know Santa shopped at Kohls.” Apparently she had seen these on display during a shopping trip. Luckily, she still wants to believe so badly that it made perfect sense to her that Santa would get part of his shopping done at the Kohls.
She also made us this ornament as school. Love those special gifts that you get to collect each year. So precious.After all of the presents were opened, we sat down to a big ol’ family breakfast, but soon after the kids were ready to rip into their stockings.
The rest of the day was spent unpackaging, assembling and playing with all of the wonderful gifts. Every one of them so perfect. Every one of them so appreciated.
Watching our kids enjoy Christmas and enjoy each other was the biggest and best gift of all. It truly was a magical Christmas!
