The Best Christmas

Cailin and Colten were so excited on Christmas Eve. The night before we went to cousin Scott's baptism in Livingston, then had pizza at their house. We got home late that night. Christmas Eve I mostly spent cooking for our family dinner. The kids watched a couple little Christmas Specials and were really wound up. We had Sparkling Cider at dinner that we ALL drank out of tall Glass goblets. It was a lot of fun. After we all cleaned up and got wound up some more, we watched "Joy to the World". We left some cookies out for Santa, said our family prayer and the kids went to bed. It was 7:30pm and we were up untill 11pm going through things, wrapping gifts and stuff. We undid all the toys from their boxes so we didn't have to spend Christmas morning cutting cardboard, and snipping plastic ties and stuff. Kiley was having a bad night so we could've been done earlier. Plus I put the bouncy seat together wrong twice! I have to say though it was the best Christmas. The kids got along, were really grateful and were so happy. We just relaxed all day. In fact Colten and Daniel didn't even change out of their pj's all day.
We want to thank Grandmas, Grandpas, Aunts, Uncles, Siblings, Parents and Santa! Here are some pictures with the kids and their Christmas gifts.

Santa gave Colt a backhoe, Brooke gave him a roller, and Cailin gave him a skidsteer. They are all CAT and make LOUD noises!
The kids love to have fun with their dad!

Cailin got a Sleeping Beauty dress and crown.
Just hanging out Christmas day.
