On Christmas eve night, we fell asleep in the car on the way home from our great-grandparents house, and were upset in the morning when we realized that we forgot to leave cookies and milk for Santa… Good thing he felt comfortable enough to help himself!
…and we’re glad he got the energy he needed from our cookies, because he was BUSY at Nannie’s house!
Our stockings were FULL of goodies… dolls, candy, hairbows & games galore! He knew just what we like!
Abby was VERY excited that Santa brought her the Barbie doll she asked for!
… and he remembered to bring Emily her doll with a horse! Santa ROCKS!!!
Ben even helped open his own Santa presents!
Nannie was very excited to open the bowls that we all painted at a pottery place for her to have at her house when we come!
Ben had a good time hanging out with grandpa…
… and got the coolest construction silverware in his stocking!
One of the hits this year was matching bean bag chairs for us from Nannie & Grandpa… We LOVE them!
They make for a perfect reading nook in our room!
It took Emily a while, but she managed to get through opening all her gifts… she just wanted to stop and play with everything!
Our Santa’s Little helper had a great time!
Mommy tried time and time again, and there was just NO getting good group shots this Christmas…
Even Emily tried to get a few shots with her new camera! She likes being just like mommy!
Aunt Bridget was a trooper, even at 37 weeks pregnant! We can’t wait to celebrate Christmas next year with baby Liam!
We were very happy celebrating Ben’s first Christmas this year all together!
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
