Chloe was the first person awake on Christmas Day (besides Brett's parents) at 7:40 am. Luke woke up shortly after her, so they both came into my room. I nursed Luke, and Chloe snuggled with Daddy. Once Luke was done, we all woke up Caleb (who is typically the first one up, so that was unusual).
The kids walked down the stairs together. They all have the sweetest hearts and had the best time opening the presents!! They love everything and eagerly played with all of their toys throughout the day.
Opening stockings...Luke did not care about his...
Just so I can remember in years to come, the gifts we received:
Caleb: GI Joe helicopter, Star Wars light saber set, pirate ship, art supplies (and other little items)
Chloe: princess dress up clothes in a chest, tricycle, princess castle, make-up (and other stuff)
The older kids each got personalized cd's. Caleb's is Veggie Tales and Chloe's is Princess Tea Party.
Luke: Leap Frog music table, Winnie the Pooh ride on toy, and other items
Sarah: an awesome DSLR camera (which I got a week early)
Brett: an iPad (which he got in September) and a Bobby Bowden ring (exclusive to FSU players) that has not yet arrived
For Christmas lunch/dinner, we enjoyed delicious prime rib, hashbrown casserole, green beans, collard greens, and cornbread.
Caleb and Chloe set the table!
Chloe and Caleb (though he refused to take a picture) helped me bake a Tres Leche cake to celebrate Jesus' birthday. This is a highlight of the day, as we take the time to honor Christ!
You can see that she enjoys her make-up very much! She put it on all day!!
Each year, as my children age, Christmas gets better and better!! Caleb and Chloe LOVE Christmas, and Luke had a great time (even though he obviously does not understand).
(We had to rearrange furniture so the kids could easily see the presents)
