Santa did come & he brought some really fun things for the kids this year.
Canyon got a little puppet theater with some puppets.
Craiger got his favorite Wii game (he's been wanting forever) & a controller.
Bladen got a really cool knights & dragon fort. He collects knights & dragons & plays with the little action figures for hours on end. This thing is going to make those little battles a whole lot more exciting for him.
Taya is my horse lover & look at this adorable barn that Santa brought her. How precious is that?
Lorien is my karaoke queen so she was THRILLED to get a karaoke machine.
Cadence is definitely becoming a teenager. . . she got a new backpack & the maze runner book series.
They were all very excited about their gifts.
My mom wasn't in the best health the entire week we were there. Poor thing. I felt so bad for her. But she had a good Christmas day. Just look how beautiful she is. I love you mom!
After opening presents, we broke out our new games & played some more. That Speak Out game is just plain hilarious.
But my mouth is way too small to put those things in it. I kept gagging & throwing up. Justin thought it was hilarious.
After lunch, & showers, & just enjoying our gifts, we finally opened up our stockings.
I had a lot of fun with stocking gifts for Cadence & Lorien this year. All the gifts I put in Lorien's stocking were Harry Potter themed.
And all the gifts I put in Cadence's stocking were Thomas Brodie-Sangster themed (aka her Hollywood crush . . . Newt from the Maze Runner & Ferb from Phineas & Ferb)
They loved it. Unfortunately I didn't get a single picture of Trek or I opening our stockings. I guess that's what happens when you're a grown up. But I did surprise Trek with an iWatch (which my grandma, parents, & brother all helped pitch in money for. I have the best family ever.) We were SO proud that he made Major so quickly. He is such a hard worker & such a wonderful husband & father. He deserves it.
Merry Christmas everyone.
