Merry Christmas family and friends! Our day started at about 6:00 am when I heard both kids downstairs talking to Grandma Marilyn. They might have been a little excited… We started with the stockings where the kids learned that the Santa presents wrapped in gold paper belonged to Laura…
… and the Santa presents wrapped in silver paper belonged to John.
Santa was good to both of our kids this year! Laura got two Lego Elves sets, a sketchbook, and a Fidget Spinner. She also got a letter from Santa letting her know that her main gift, COPIC markers, had to come from Japan and they would be delivered to our house sometime in January.
John got two Nerf guns, two Lego sets, and a Fidget Spinner.
Once the Santa presents were opened, the kids got down to business opening the rest of the presents. John was very excited to get to open the biggest box – a ball return for practicing baseball in our yard.
Laura’s favorite present is her new smartphone! It was the last present she got to open and I called it while she was opening it. Needless to say, she was very shocked because Andy had told her that she would not be getting a phone for a while. It was a cool parent win (for one day at least)!
It did not take long to open all the gifts and both kids got some very nice presents. Here is Laura’s pile…
…and here is John’s pile.
The kids spent the rest of the day enjoying their new presents. Laura spent most of the day on her new phone texting and talking to her friends. John was very excited to get to use his new, huge Nerf gun – The Judge. There were darts everywhere all day long.
We spent the rest of the day relaxing, eating some great food, and hanging out. It was a great Christmas. I hope you all had great days as well!
