Look! Chris got a train set...disguised as a gift for Lucas!
Enjoying the loot!
Christmas morning they got up at 6:15 and we told them they needed to wait to get up until it was light outside. Well, they were so excited that they of course couldn't go back to sleep so we got up soon afterwards. Since it was still dark outside, we decided to eat first because we always video tape the opening of the presents and we wanted there to be enough light. Well that's the excuse we used anyway. Perhaps we are just plain mean and can't help ourselves...haha. They ate breakfast quickly and were jumping up and down in anticipation of opening their treasures. Once we got settled beside the tree we had a wonderful time opening each gift and Chris and I feigned excitement/surprise for every gift that Santa brought. It was so much fun! We spent the rest of the day putting together toys and playing with each and every one. We had a honey baked ham in the afternoon and friends of ours came to visit for a few hours in the evening. We were exhausted by the end to say the least.
I hope you all had a joyous Christmas as well! I will post an update in a few days about New Year's Eve.
