I was having too much fun with the kids to take very many pictures on Christmas morning but we did get a few....we had a big Cat tractor that the kids can sit on and ride out and unwrapped already when they came out of their bedroom, as well as a stroller with Maia's new doll in it. My parents got to our house about the same time the kids were waking up, and both my sisters and Allison's husband were there too, plus Debbi, so there were 8 adults to watch and spoil JD & Maia. :-) I think we spent about 30 minutes just playing with the tractor and stroller/doll before we even started in on the rest of the presents!
I think once you are over 50, it is hard to be suprised for Christmas! We thought we had done it this year by getting my parents snowshoes, and then the day after Thanksgiving they started talking about how good the sales were, and were ready to go out and buy snowshoes. So we had to tell them they couldn't and would just have to wait until Christmas.
Also notice in the above picture that my shoe-girl Maia is already wearing the new purple tennis shoes from her stocking, even though they are about 2 sizes too big.
We had to help them get the paper started, but they figured out how to pull it back and get the present inside pretty quickly.
JD was stoked about his new cars from Debbi.
The kids were very excited to get bottles on Christmas morning (we've stopped bottles at this point) because Mama wanted some milk protein to balance out the early-morning Christmas candy & cookies. :-)
Our kids are too smart, we didn't want them to figure out how to turn the sound on and off, so that we could control whether we were listening to truck noises all day, but engineer JD had figured out how to turn the sound on so the buttons work by lunch time.
