Christmas Recap

We had such a wonderful Christmas :) We attended our church's Christmas Eve service where Gavin was in the choir. I love hearing children sing Christmas songs. From there we headed home for the long wait for Santa. Gavin kept saying he wanted to go to bed so Santa could come, but it was on 7pm! He was so excited. We sat under the tree for a while looking at all of the wrapped presents. Gavin told Danyelle which present he was going to open up first and second, and which present he was going to open last. When it got a little later, Danyelle and Gavin went outside to sprinkle the reindeer food all over the grass. They also hung the special "magic keys" outside our front door. The keys are for Santa to get into our house since we do not have a chimney. And right before bed Danyelle and Gavin picked out some homemade cookies for Santa's snack and left a glass of milk for him. Gavin slept in Danyelle's room and as they were laying down I heard him say " No chit chatting Danyelle, we have to go to sleep!"

Christmas morning Katelyn was the first to awake. I had her go and wake up Danyelle and Gavin to get our morning started. Gavin was so excited that he ran right past his filled stocking and Santa present to start grabbing gifts from under the tree. After the kids had finished unloading their stockings and ooohed at their Santa gifts we started opening presents. Gavin even did his in the order he had picked out the night before!

We headed over to Grammies around 11 to see the rest of the family and have Christmas lunch. All the kids had such a great time together and Katelyn was just happy to be in the midst of it. Gavin opened all her presents for her that she would look at and walk away from.

When we got home later that afternoon we all crashed down for a 2 hour nap. Much needed rest!!
Have a great weekend everyone!
