The kids were excited to leave cookies and milk for Santa.
Christmas morning finally came. Since it was on Sunday this year, and we have church at 9:30, we told the kids we would open stockings before church, and then open presents after church. The kids did really well with this plan (I was a little concerned). They opened stockings and played with the big toys that Santa left unwrapped. Then they ate the little boxes of cereal from their stockings and got ready for church (in their new clothes from Santa).
Jonas got his two lawn mowers that he had been dreaming about for the past two months.
Hannah got her vanity. We took it upstairs the day after Christmas and it looks really cute.
Brady wanted to try out all of the kids new stuff too :)
One of our family Christmas traditions is to wear our jammies all day long. This year was a little different, so we told the kids they could change back into their pajamas after church if they wanted. First I grabbed a few pictures in their Christmas Sunday clothes. Everyone changed back except for Eli.
Here's Eli with the Kiddie Zoom camera he wanted.
It even has video and lots of games to play.
The kids had fun putting on shows throughout the day.
