Christmas morning the kids slept in until 8 am and we actually had to wake Hunter up! Gigi & Poppy came over at 8:30 am. The kids came downstairs to see if Santa had been to see them. After checking out stockings, they ate a quick breakfast and then opened presents! Hunter was so excited and Allie could not stop climbing onto her new Pinkalicious bike that Santa brought her. After opening presents under our tree Clint made a big breakfast for everyone-bacon, scrambled eggs, belgian waffles & toast.
After we refueled Poppy & Clint brought in all of the presents from Gigi & Poppy & Aunt Sharon & Uncle Barry-this took several trips! haha The kids were SO excited to get to open even more presents-Hunter was running around the den saying "More Presents! More Presents!" Let's just say that our den looked like ToysRUS afterwards. Allie got a new pink pbk chair, books, "Purplelicious" book & pj's, etc. Hunter got a ride on dump truck, choo choo train, Mega Blocks, etc. Alexis Grace got "Sophie the Giraffe" (the world's top teething toy for baby's according to the website http://sophiegiraffeusa.com/) along with other goodies such as Pedi Ped shoes, etc.
Our kids were SPOILED this year to put it bluntly, but they still stopped to remember the true meaning of Christmas...."Baby Jesus' Birthday" as Hunter said. They sang happy birthday and Allie asked me "Why do we get presents if it's Jesus' birthday?" Ask Gigi I said. Haha
Santa did not forget Mommy & Daddy...Santa brought mommy a Pandora bracelet, CHI hair straightner & pink power drill. Daddy got RayBan sunglasses from Santa in his stocking & a mechanics tool set from Mommy!
We hope to use our Christmas money from my Aunts & Uncles & my parents to go to Disney World this spring (early May...possibly to celebrate Allie's 5th birthday). Thank you to everyone for thinking of us and our children this Christmas & for all of the wonderful presents, surprises & baked goodies-we love all of you!
