December Daily ~ Merry Christmas (day 25)

Merry Christmas!

What a merry Christmas is was. I just love Christmas time and this year was no exception.

The kids were up bright and early. Of course, we wouldn't expect it any other way.

Bobo got the privilege of starting us out. 

Then the kids wanted mommy and daddy to open the presents they made/bought. I love their heart. I love that they are MORE excited to see our reactions than to open their own presents.

They can be quite creative.
Then the kids opened presents that they made each other.
Finally, presents from mommy and daddy!

This year, I got Brian a muzzle loader. He has been eyeing one for years! He was a tab bit excited.

Brian got me a new lens for my camera! Yay! Exactly what I wanted. There are no pictures of me opening it because he gave it to me early so I could use it. He did however wrap the box. Along with 200 dollars to go in my "upgrade camera" fund. He is such a sweetheart.

Time for stockings!

We have a few Christmas day traditions. When the kids were little we would always run from one house to the other. A few years back, Brian decided we would start staying home all day. I'm so glad I followed his lead on that one! It is so nice to stay home and enjoy the whole day with the kids.

Most of our Christmas Day traditions involve food. Ha!

First up, a BIG breakfast! After all the presents are open, the kids and daddy tackle the living room so that Ms. Taylor can drive around the house without having to dodge presents and wrapping paper and I start the food.

We don't usually end up eating until about 10 or so. I always have trail and cheese (another favorite!) out so everyone can snack when they want.

We spend the whole day together. Playing with new toys. Learning how to use new toys! Playing games. I just love it! No where to go. Nothing to do. 

I had fun playing around with my new lens. :)

Thanks for sharing a glimpse into our day. I hope your Christmas was a very blessed one!
