Simply Wonderful Christmas Time

Every year Christmas turns out to be such a magical event and this year was no exception. I always have to take one last picture of the tree and stockings before the destruction begins.

All time favorite photo is always the one that captures the kids faces as they see what is under the tree!
Trey was speechless, yes for the first time in his life, when opened a Wii from Santa. We are still trying to remind him it was a "family" gift however he believes otherwise.
Other highlights for Trey, Broncos shirt, Legos, football & remote control truck!
Kaden on the other hand was VERY disappointed in Santa's work. He had specifically asked for a Bumble Bee Transformer that transformed into a car and the guy so you can see from the picture why he was so upset that he only brought him the guy. Before he had even finished unwrapping it he started crying and hitting his gift. Once we were able to calm him down, and signed him up for an anger management class, he was happy with the gift and willingly opened more.
A huge sigh of relief when mom and dad gave him a Bumble Bee Transformer that was a guy and a car!!
Avrey was so excited to open presents and made sure she opened all of her all by herself. She was very excited about her new baby stroller and sat in it the rest of the morning to open her gifts.
She also loved her new baby doll, Elmo shirt, Barbie doll, and necklaces.
My parents always send the life saver gifts!! Everyone gets their favorite box of cereal that gets devoured once we are done opening gifts. We love it!
I love that Christmas was on Sunday this year. Once we enjoyed the fun of Christmas and a nice big breakfast we got all dressed up and headed to church to enjoy the true meaning of Christmas.
Thank you Gram & Grandpa for the darling Christmas outfits!
Needless to say we had a wonderful Christmas and are so grateful for our many blessings!
