Our Christmas 2012

Last, but not least, we had our family Christmas.  I think Austin started requesting to go to bed at about 6:30 so Santa could come.  I think it just gets more and more fun with these guys!  We spent Christmas Eve all snuggled up in the family room watching movies.  So, it was just like any other weekend in that aspect!  Except, usually, our kids beg to stay up, not go to bed.  Once they were asleep we put together our final preparations for the next morning.

Surprisingly, they didn’t wake up at a crazy hour.  It was a respectable 7:30am before they were all awake (thanks to Riley).  We rushed downstairs and headed to the stockings:

Nothing says “Merry Christmas” quite like a grenade.  (And yes, I think he looks like Rob here)

It also never ceases to amaze me that after all the hours and thoughtfulness I have put into each of their gifts, it’s something like the $0.50 ring pop from Santa that gets the biggest reaction. {sigh}

After stockings we headed to the Piano room (aka…the living room) for the regular presents.

Love this picture.

The next 20 minutes was a blur:

The fun was far from over though:

These guys are the best.  Aren’t we lucky! 

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas (only a month late)!

This blog now returns to it’s regularly scheduled nonsense.
