pj brunch

After we saw what Santa brought we got ready and headed over to Granna and Papa D's for our traditional PJ brunch. 

We got there a little early so we could meet Ben's family to open presents.  The kids got even more stuff!  Just what they needed.  :)

Finally Karen's family joined us and we had a delicious brunch.  Here's the PJ pic....
 and the silly PJ pic!  The kids love this!
Happy Christmas!

Christmas morning

Emma Taylor and Harrison woke up at 7am and poked me until we got up too.  They were super excited and ready to see what Santa brought.  They both got lots of good stuff, so they must have been pretty good this year!

They both got new bikes and lots of other fun stuff!

 Everybody loves Webkinz!

 The Easy Bake!
 Oh, and the Tooth Fairy came too!  Harrison was double excited!
Santa filled stockings for Anna Grace and Sarah too!  When they made it back they checked out their loot!

 More Webkinz!
A wonderful Christmas!

Granna and Papa D came over for dinner on Christmas Eve and were around to help us make our reindeer food.  Fun times!

Yes, I'm the good mom that let's the kids outside with bare feet on Christmas Eve!  :)
Now the reindeer are all set!
Then it was time to get baths and ready for bed.

Memaw, Candace and Landon came over to have Christmas with us for lunch on Christmas Eve.  We got way more gifts than we deserved and loved them all!

Sadly, we didn't take a single picture during the present opening....ugh!  At least I remembered to snap some of the kids with Memaw before she left!

Merry Christmas!

i lost my first tooth...on Christmas Eve!

I took the kids to the dentist on Wednesday and found that Harrison had a loose tooth.  On Saturday it was so loose that I was afraid he was going to swallow it with his breakfast!

I held him in my lap and asked Lee to take a look at it and make it wasn't that loose. He wiggled it and it just came out in his hand, without Harrison even knowing!  He hopped down and Lee showed me the tooth.  So exciting!

 Pretty cool losing your first tooth on Christmas Eve!
Goodness, between Santa and the Tooth Fairy it was a wild night! :)

After we saw Santa, I let the kids pick out presents for each other.  Well, that was the plan anyway!  It was a little tough to keep things a secret since I had all four of them by myself, so everyone just ended up picking out what they wanted.  Oh well, at least they know they'll like it!  :)

Here's Harrison searching for presents for his sisters, before we decided to let everyone pick their own.  He did a pretty good job picking things out at Claire's!
Here are the kids wrapping all their gifts!

The kids can't wait to get into all those presents!


We finally made it to see Santa today!

Santa talked to each of the kids to find out what they wanted for Christmas!

 Emma Taylor also dropped her letter in his mailbox!
