Christmas morning...




awww, the magic of Christmas day!

i loved this year {and of course every year} my twins were at the Cute age of excitement and awe as we baked our cookies for santa on Christmas eve. we were tracking Santa all night on Norad, and Boston was so cute with them too, telling them to hurry and get to bed, because he thought he heard the sleigh. haha {it worked}

i love everything about Christmas morning, i love the anticipation, the sleepless child who wakes up every hour and asks if it's time yet {Boston}, the jammies that you wear ALL DAY, the big breakfast, etc...

we had a wonderful day filled with yummy food, family, movies {the Chipmunks},games, toys and toys and more toys!

and of course the joy and love that you feel for others throughout the season.. may it last & last forever!

while Olivia was baking a cake in her "easy bake oven"  she told me it was for Jesus' birthday.  How cute is she?  We asked our kids that day what gifts they would give to Jesus, and Olivia said that she would "keep the sacrament" haha  I'm sure she meant the Commandments.  she is seriously the sweetest little thing!

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas...


we make our kids wait by the door until everyone is ready. {dad}
then  they all go out at the same time.

did i mention that my kids didn't wake up until 9am!!!











every year santa hides a present usually at the bottom of their stocking and he sends them on a scavenger hunt... he sent them all over the house and they finally ended up in the garage and found BIKES!!

Boston got his new mtn bike with clips {can't wait to take him mtn biking} and livi & hayes got these new bikes that have no training wheels and no pedals.   this will help them with balance so they can learn how to ride without training wheels.   It was too cold to ride outside so
 they rode in the garage. ;)












Boston was hilarious all morning with his "Cell phone"  he is now a multi tasker... playing with his helicopter while talking on the phone...
