Christmas Day 2012

On Christmas Eve, we went to our church for the 6:00 service. It was great. There was a lot of music by kids and adults and a short message from the Pastor. The service lasted only 45 minutes, so Parker was able to sit happily the entire time.

After we got home we made chocolate chip cookies for Santa and cut up some carrots for the reindeer and Isabelle wrote a note to leave for Santa.

Sants circled "No" on the note.

Carrots, cookies, white milk, chocolate milk and two Christmas books ready for Santa and his reindeer.
 Isabelle and Seth woke up Christmas morning at about 6:50. They headed downstairs on their own to see if Santa had visited. Indeed he had!

We all waited patiently until 8:00 so that Parker would wake up and be able to open his gifts with everyone. Then the sorting of presents began...

Isabelle got an electric scooter!

Seth was excited to get some of Santa's bells

New trucks for Parker, and a puppy

Microchargers - the "most wanted' thing on Seth's wish list

Parker slowly opened gifts, peeling a little bit of paper off at a time.

Seth and Parker each got a Wiggle Car.

Isabelle also received some books, fuzzy socks, the Simon Flash game, a Rubik's cube, a helmet (for the scooter), Lego Friends, nail polish and a polish dryer, itunes gift cards and small items in her stocking.

Seth also received two Avengers wall decorations and posters for his room, a giraffe dream lite, Connect Four, an Avengers cartoon dvd, a LeapPad game, a remote control car and stocking stuffers. Suprisingly, one of his favorite presents was a small canister of bubble gum!

Parker's presents also included puzzles, a toy flashlight, a dream lites penguin, a remote control doggy and Hot Wheels cars.

Santa also brought us a family present - Guitar Hero for the Wii. Shane received a remote control stunt car and a blender bottle for protein shakes from me. I received a "most wanted" gift - a Kitchenaid stand mixer.

Everyone was happy with their gifts and we had a great day!
