Christmas Day!

Wow, another Christmas has come and gone in the blink of an eye it seems. Kids are wonderful aren't they. Beautiful with eyes full of wonder and excitement.
We got a wake up call christmas morning from my niece McKinlee at 7:00 a.m., honestly we may have slept till 8:00 if we wouldn't have got that call, so thanks ninny, who sleeps in on Christmas morning? We all had a wonderful christmas! The kids were so excited and so appreciative of their gifts. Really, I could not ask for better children. They are so thoughtful and kind. They are my greatest gift.
Britton just wanted to keep unwrapping, once he got the paper off he just handed the box to us. He was excited once he realized what was in the box.
Maci was so excited , just tearing the wrapping paper off as fast as she could. After everything she opened, she just could not say thank you enough times. She said "Mommy I love it" , "We are so lucky", Thank you so much, over and over again. She was in the best mood ever and just absolutely loved Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It was so much fun.
Tanner's expression on his face said it all. He didn't say much, but you could read it all over his face. He was suprised by his Rock Band 2 drumset. He loved it. He too, was very grateful for his presents. Cute, Cute, little kiddies.
Oh, and I did get that New Digital Camera that I asked for, that was very exciting.

Christmas Eve.....

We had our annual Christmas Eve Party over in Paragonah at Dougs Uncles House. We had a wonderful Dinner, visited, sang a few songs and went home to get to sleep so that Santa could come! The kids were so excited. It's so wonderful having kids, it keeps the magic of christmas alive. When we arrived home that night we let the kids unwrap one present,which is their pajamas. This is a christmas eve tradition of ours. My mom did it , and now I have carried it on with my own kids. They get just as excited as I remember getting on christmas eve. Maci Bo got Hannah Montana pj's, and Tanner and Britton got Transformer pj's. I took a cute picture of maci unwrapping her jammies too, but my camera has seen better days and it didn't turn out. Unfortunaely a lot of my pics are somewhat blurry. I did ask for a new camera for Christmas!!!
Right before the kids went to bed, they took some reindeer food that maci got from her teacher and sprinkled it on the lawn. It was snowing and the kids were outside in their pj's with boots on. They had a blast. And guess what? We woke up to reindeer footprints out on the grass and they came right up to our porch. The kids were so amazed.
