Christmas...

This christmas, instead of doing our little families on christmas eve, we decided to do it a couple days before that way 1) the kids could play with their presents for a day before getting on the road and 2) so its not so chaotic the night before..since we typically cook a nice dinner and open presents..only to throw most away because we made too much. 

so, we had our christmas on christmas eve, eve..haha..and did it in the morning vs night..so, we woke up had a breakfast casserole and cinnamon rolls and then opened presents...all in our jimmies..it was so nice. and then was able to play with gifts and have a lounging day of packing and getting ready for our trips. ..and then ordered pizza for christmas eve dinner..and watched polar express...it was perfect! 
so, it seems that will become our new tradition. 
christmas morning, the kids woke up to santa...which was pretty fun since the kids didn't really have any specific lists this year..so, we were able to keep it minimal.. but, I just hoped I guessed correctly.haha!

Ty asked for: 
 Nintendo DS2
and a "4 wheeled skateboard" since santa messed up last year and got him a 2 wheeled..haha! 

Hanna: 
my little pony dress (I have no idea where that came from..haha) but she was stuck on that idea. 

Claire:
she never had anything...it was typically a sucker or something like that..

Jake:
 he may not have spoken up..haha...but he wanted new baby stuff..haha!
