Christmas Morning

Christmas was very exciting for our family this year. Having a 2 year old in the house added a lot of excitement and anticipation! Over the past week and a half we have had 2 1/2 days worth of Christmas and 1 1/2 days of New Year celebrations, and we are just now recovering from all of the festivities!

Kristoffer had Christmas Eve off, and he volunteered to watch the kids so I could make cookies for Santa. Karter was excited to leave cookies and milk out for Santa and carrots for the reindeer.

We were excited to see Santa and his reindeer had eaten all of the snacks and left a lot of packages for the boys...and one for Rascal!
It was an early morning for all of us, but Kaden wasn't quite ready to wake up.
Before we opened any presents, Kristoffer read us the Christmas Story from the Bible.

Karter was a little hesitant at first, but soon got the hang of it...especially when he saw he got race cars and a race track.

Kaden didn't know what to do, but he had a lot of fun playing with all the wrapping paper and boxes.

Since Kaden was too little to unwrap his own gifts, Karter was more than happy to help him out!

After all of the gifts from Santa were opened, we opened our gifts to each other. Karter was very kind and let Kristoffer open his gifts first, then me and Kaden, and he wanted to go last.

It was so cute to watch the boys checking out all of their new stuff.

Rascal enjoyed his Christmas present too!

We had a wonderful Christmas filled with lots of family time!! Now that we are settling back into our "normal", the boys are enjoying playing with all of their toys. It is amazing what a room full of new toys can do...they have been entertaining themselves all day!!
