Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

I am not sure why, but I really didn't take all that many photos of Christmas this year.  I didn't even take one of the kids little trees or of the big tree!  Anyway, it was a fun day - here are some of the photos and videos from Christmas morning. 

First we opened our Christmas stockings.  Last year I took a long video of this and it was so fun to watch for those who would like to be with us Christmas morning but can't.  Anyway, I did it again so that you could see how much fun they have tearing into these stockings filled mostly with everyday stuff.  The first one is only a few seconds long and is about how long it took Ben to take out all the stuff.  The second one is much longer - about 10 minutes! Took Carlee alot longer to take everything out!!!

One of the things that didn't get on the video was that there were mitts in their stockings.  I asked them why they thought Santa would put mitts in their stockings and they gave the typical answer "to keep out hands warm".  So I had to make a big production about going outside to get some wood and of course I saw why Santa thought they needed new mitts...

Here Carlee is reading who it is to and from.  I had asked Ben if he was ripping the paper - this is his "nope not me I would never do anything like that" look HA

I hope that they are always this happy to get simple things like bathrobes and shampoo!

This was my favorite gift.  Our babysitter took the time to do these with the kids - how special is that!
