our christmas

I sure can't sleep late on Christmas so I was up early and waiting.


By 8:00 they were checking out the gifts under the tree... 
Who wouldn't want a dancing, singing sock monkey?

A pez dispenser in the stocking...

And a few more presents to open...

Cinnamon rolls to eat for breakfast...

And a new football to try out, too.

It was a beautiful day spent with family. I don't remember ever having a happier, more peaceful Christmas. I hope yours was lovely, too.

  1. Sounds kinda like ours this year - we had pez dispensers AND jumbo princess coloring books with 150 ct crayons! ha ha

    We had caramel rolls and a basketball to try - even a glow in the dark one! Yes, this was a very relaxing and quiet Christmas spent at our house this year. So glad it was for you too! P.S-I love the outside of your house!

  3. Perfect photos! You and your family are just gorgeous ( or should I say handsome) and these pictures really have a lot of meaning to them, which I adore. I love love love the sock monkeys, I wish I was cool enough to get one :) I am really happy because this year I got a super nice tripod (one of the best) and an amazing camera bag...... Yeah for a creative mom! Well glad you had a good Christmas, wishing you and your family the very best for this upcoming year!

  5. I love Christmas day pictures - even though the children are growing up. I must look out from previous years and compare them!
    Your boys certainly look happy with their gifts.
    It looks as if you had a nice day for it too.
    Hope you have a great New Year when it comes. :)
