The kids were up bright eyed and bushy tailed on Christmas morning in their new pj's and slippers. They grabbed their stockings and went to town.
"What is this?" Nah, I don't even know what he was saying. He's cute though.
Our traditional coffee cake breakfast.
After cleanup we read Luke 2.
Then we opened gifts. I love Evie's expressiveness. This was her watch, one of the primary things on her list.
This was an extra gift, one we couldn't say no to - a new bunny to replace Fluffy, which she lost and had been adding to her to-do lists in an attempt to find him.
"No. Way. A Pikachu!"
Noah got a Flareon Pokemon. He was also just a little excited. Our kids got into Pokemon pretty heavily this last summer.
Little remote control car for Ezzie.
Samuel really wanted this Curious George jack-in-the-box.
We had just watched Elf so the toy was even funnier.
It was hilarious to watch him jump when George came out, plus, look at Terry's eyes!
We like to say Samuel has big emotions. He used to cry so hard he'd collapse and turn blue, he cries at the drop of a pin, and he laughs incredibly loud. Here he is expressing his happiness over receiving the Lego watch he asked for.
Noah was equally happy to get the Pokemon Mega Beedrill he asked for.
Ezra is opening his Paw Patrol lunchbox, Terry's bored, Noah is watching, Samuel is playing, Ezra is on the move.
Evie and her laser eyes with the photo book I made.
Organizing Pokemon cards.
Magnatiles and Legos.
I was getting the camera timer ready and caught another funny look from Terry. Ha!
Fun family times.
There was a blizzard that was supposed to hit that afternoon so we postponed our usual trip out to the ranch until the next day.
We were glad we did too. It ended up being a pretty decent day and the kids had fun playing outside.
