christmas day

We managed to make the kids wait until 8am Xmas morning before we started opening up the presents under the tree and look in their stockings. Favorite presents: Sander - Hobbit Game from Marissa, me - handmade half apron from my mom, Lara - giggling baby, Julia - tiny Disney princess dress up, Max - doggy dreamlight, Elliot - Disney Cars play mat with tiny cars.

At about 2pm the family started arriving, and that's when lots more food was cooked and things got louder, crazier, and so much more magical.

My favorite part of this year's Christmas was my little niece Kylee telling me she got a guitar for Christmas and asking me if I would play a few songs on my guitar for her. She then proceeded to stand by my side and stare at me with a completely captivated look on her pretty face as I played through a handful of songs, and she sang along. Or maybe it was when I was playing 'Jingle Bells' and Benson started screaming out the words quite suddenly when we got to the chorus. I believe we have it on video somewhere, which I will try to get my hands on - it was hilarious! I hope you all had an equally lovely Christmas this year, filled with love and warmth.
