Before Santa leaves, he drops off the stockings at the foot of each of the kid's beds.
That way they can open them and kill a little time before they wake up their mom and dad by singing Christmas carols on the stairs at 7:00.
They get to go into the family room in order of youngest to oldest and the level of excitement is electric.
The biggest hit for Lu this year was this cardboard unicorn for her to color because hey, unicorns and coloring happen to be her two favorite things.
It was a longboard year for the big kids.
And Claire was pleased as punch with her American Girl doll.
We're always thankful when we get to have Josh around. He gave the kids some cool things from his trip to Africa.
We had such a relaxing, beautiful morning. It felt so great to just lounge around, listen to Christmas music, eat cinnamon rolls enjoy each other before we headed to church.
Goodbye Christmas 'til next year...when I'll be much better prepared for you if it kills me! :)
