Christmas Morning 2010...

Christmas Eve we slept at my parents house. We are still going to wait a few years before we go to our own house, for now it is the older kids that make it fun for the younger ones. The kids got us up at 4:45 am, they couldn't wait another second. :) We have to wait for Scott and Nancy to come over so all the kids wait (not so patiently) on the stairs.

I love the annual "picture while waiting on the stairs"


Then they run in, and find their piles...


Parker is going through a "don't take my picture" phase, so this is about as good as it gets with him :)...

They take turns opening from youngest to oldest, and Parker is the youngest in our family. So he gets to go first...


Layton got a spiderman dvd in his stocking, we have watched it almost every day since ...


Of course lots of loaders and dump trucks...


Haha, he also got a pair of binoculars in his stocking, for hunting with Daddy...


All Parker wanted for Christmas was a gas pump, it was the only thing he asked for. Who knows...


The only thing Layton asked for was a remote control motorcycle. He was so so SO excited about it (if you can't tell :)...


They got snow tubes...

and Buzz Lightyear wings...

...and lots of other fun stuff, except for the gas pump and motorcycle they had pretty much identical Christmas's. Santa must know that we need 2 of everything in our house :)

We had an amazing day. I am so grateful for my wonderful family!!!

Christmas is so fun with all of the family. It will be a few years till we 'graduate' to our own house too; and I think I'll miss all the craziness and fun! Looks like you all had a very merry Christmas:)
