Santa Came!

I guess Knox and Hadley were good this year because Santa treated them well!

I was totally expecting Knox to be up at 5am (last year he was already awake and playing with his toys when we got up) but lucky for us it was rainy and very dark Christmas morning, and we all slept in til 7! We actually had to wake Knox up and that never happens.


The first looks… Knox is still trying to wake up!



Excitement! Christmas morning faces are one of my most favorite things ever.

And the joint gift stack.

Sweet Hadley just taking it all in. I know she’s only 2, but she is SO very verbal I think this will be the first Christmas she will remember.


We took our time getting in to the goods. I can honestly say my kids got a chance to enjoy every single thing. Sure it took all day, but that’s the beauty of spending Christmas Day at home with little ones.


The mini slinkies were a big hit in their stockings.


As if we needed any more trains… But Knox was very specific and consistent with his Wish List this year. “A candy cane, a choo choo train, and the Star Wars Lego game for X-Box.” I really wanted to include all those things, so for the “choo choo train” Santa brought him some bigger pieces that go with the wooden railway set he already has.


This poor Our Generation horse…


It’s been ridden by Miss Hadley a heck of a lot more than it has been by the doll.

Here’s more on the keepsake books the kids got…


Sooo adorable!

Santa always tries to include Mommy and Daddy too…


A new shower curtain and liner… So practical of you, Santa!


Daddy’s stocking had house shoes, a Mavericks t-shirt, a handy little tool, a Pocket Ref book, Carmax, Every Man Jack face lotion, and body wash.


Mommy’s stocking… I’d planned on more but I got a little impatient ;)

After it was all said and done James said (like he does every year), “Santa did a really good job.” I told him to keep that in mind 11 months from now… Like I do every year.

Obviously I’m having to break my Christmas posts up. I’ll post the rest of Christmas Day soon!
