Christmas 2012

Merry Christmas!!

I always look forward to Christmas, and it's even more fun now with kids.  Especially since Abbi and Easton are old enough to get excited about it.

Santa did not disappoint this year.  Abbi was spoiled with a whole collection of fairies plus window markers, a mini My Little Pony, crayons, and more.

Easton was ecstatic to find race cars and a race track, along with Cars coloring pages and a stocking full of more fun things.

Santa didn't forget Camden, either, with baby toys and a singing monkey.

And this is the first year that Santa left a toy for all of them to share!

I think Max just wanted the chocolate!

Once everyone was up, it was time to open presents.  It sure is fun seeing their faces light up!

And it was fun to be there with my parents and to share Christmas morning with them.

After presents were opened, we had our traditional scones for breakfast.  We didn't get them last year since we spent the morning at a hotel, so it was a treat to have them this year!

Abbi went right to work coloring the windows and playing with her toys.

After presents, breakfast, and some crazy time in the kitchen, we all headed over to Tami's house for Christmas lunch and festivities.

The food was amazing as always and the kids had tons of fun playing together.  Abbi sure does love playing with her cousins, and Easton loves the collection of cars he gets to play with over there!

Then all the kids opened presents from Grandma and Grandpa.

Abbi scored with a huge tea set.

And Easton couldn't have been happier with a huge collection of cars.  Camden got a fun toy to hang on his carseat that I know he's going to love.

It was such a great holiday and I can't wait for next year now!

(and I now notice that Camden is noticeably absent from any photos - but I promise he was there!!)
