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!|
