Christmas Morning

Is it really March already?? And I haven't posted about Christmas morning! Yes we did have a Christmas morning. And it was great! Of course, Natalie was first to wake up. She is always up at the crack of dawn. I don't think she remembered it was Christmas so she came and hung out with Mark and I in bed for about an hour. It was now around 8 o'clock and Josh was still snoozing away. So we had Natalie go in a wake Josh up and tell him it was Christmas. It was the first year that we had Christmas morning with just our little family in our home.

The kids checking out their loot.

The dumping of stockings.

It was so fun to be able to start our own traditions on Christmas morning. We had a very slow, relaxing morning. After seeing what Santa brought, the kids played with the stuff they got. I think they had forgotten that there were still tons of presents under the tree. Which was fine by me. We wanted to stretch Christmas out as long as we could! We had breakfast and opened/put together/played with the stuff in and around their stockings. Later that day we got around to opening up the presents.

We took it very slow. If the kids wanted to open and play with their toys as we went along, by golly we let them. No rush in getting through them all at once! Its so fun that way!!

We had a relaxing rest of the day. The kids played with their new stuff. We layed around. Enjoyed each others company. Watched a new movie or two they had recieved. And had a delicious dinner. It was perfect!
