christmas day.

I was the first one up this morning. In our old house, they always came in our room and woke us up, then I would go downstairs first, get the camera ready and they would come downstairs last. They were worried about breaking that tradition, so they decided they would stay downstairs until I came to get them. 7:30 was the time we agreed on. I was up about 10 minutes before I heard whispers at the bottom of the stairs. 

Gretchie was still pretty sleepy...

This year's Santa gift...

The kids each got 3 presents and then some presents for all three of them together. (Movies, games and a ream of paper.)

Singing "Happy Birthday" to Baby Jesus...

The kids got 4 movies this year. (I kept finding good deals on Amazon, and since we only get 2 TV channels now, we watch a lot more movies.) We watched 3 of the 4 today.

Grandma and Grandpa came in the afternoon with more fun presents. {Somehow I didn't get any pictures of Grandpa. He did take a little nap for awhile, which was understandable since he had been up since 2:45 am...}

Gretchen's pet turkey even made an appearance again this evening. (He even has a collar and leash now.)

Lots of relaxing. Lots of eating.
Lots of time spent dancing and quoting the "Christmas jammies" video.  (It's our new favorite video!)
Movies watched. Games played.
FaceTime with cousins.
Time, time and more time spent together.
Love this family. Love this house.
Loved spending our first Christmas together in this house.
Here's to many more...
