Christmas Joy!

It was a very Merry Christmas at our house!

After getting home from the Christmas Eve Candlelight service, we let the kids open one present. They all opened pj's from Grandma and Grandpa. Paige got ballerina pj's (complete with tutu), and Charlie got Star Wars pj's. They were both elated and couldn't wait to go to sleep in them! Anna got cute Bunny Slipper pj's. She too couldn't wait to go to sleep...though she didn't really care what she was wearing. =) Christmas morning we were greeted with lots and lots of presents from Santa! Everyone in our house somehow made it on to the 'Nice' list this year.

Paige got the Pink and Purple bike that she asked Santa for.

Charlie, keeping with the Star Wars theme, got a double-sided lightsaber (Darth Maul's). He also got a rockin' slot car race track. I will have to post pictures and videos of that later. It is really cool. Anna was very excited on Christmas morning. Finally she got to touch and crinkle all that paper! From Santa, Anna got these really cool climbing mats.

Anna also got this cute Sight and Sounds stage toy from Aunt Heather. Anna is loving staring at herself in the mirror and bouncing along to the music. Jonathan, Mr. Geocache, got a bunch of geocaching gear from Santa. And I was blessed with way more than I deserve.

After presents at our house, we went up to Jonathan's parents' house for lots and lots of food, more presents and fun games.

All in all, an Awesome Christmas!!


  1. Great pics. Love the ones of Anna in the paper. I also saw snow in out the windows in the background....lucky!! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

  2. Anna looks like she is in wrapping paper heaven. Sounds like you all had a beautiful Christmas.
    Love the kids in their new PJ's. We do that too.

  3. Merry Christmas! LC got that soundstage for her birthday and it's still at the top of her "favorites" list...

  4. Merry Christmas! Glad everyone made the nice list. Our Aidan & Charlie would be great friends...the star wars theme was rampant here too.

  5. Looks like you did have a wonderful Christmas. Sam loved to crinkle the wrapping paper as well. Loved the PJ's!!!
