Christmas Morning

There is no other way to describe Christmas was a ZOO!!  Santa was SUPER generous as were the grandparents and Aunts and Uncles.  We had a great time watching all of the kids excitement from opening up the gifts.  This is all of the gifts awaiting the kids on Christmas morning.  I couldn't get everything in the same shot.

Kendall, Alexis, Ashley, Gramms (Mom), and Pops (Dad) came over to Mike and Rachel's house early Christmas morning.  Mason should have been up, but wasn't.  Mike woke him up and the kids came into the living room (aka my room) for the big reveal.

Mason got this really cool train table from Santa.  It was very neat and must have taken Santa HOURS to put together.  Mason loved it so much, that he was not all that interested in opening all of his other presents.

Kendall got a rocking horse from Santa.  You press one ear and it makes gallop noises and the other ear makes horse noises.  She was SO excited.  She just wanted to ride all day.

Poor Tucker was a little late to the party.  He wanted to sleep in a little.  He had no clue what the big deal was, but he was his usual charming self.

Here is a montage of some of Kendall's highlights.  Al and Ashley bought a big stuffed bear for the boys and a dog for Kendall.  Poor thing thought that both of them were for her.  She got a new fancy dress from Gramms and Pops, a grocery cart and play food from Taris and I, a baby stroller from Rae and Mike, and lots of books.

Like I said earlier, Mason played with his train set more than anything else, so I don't have a lot of pictures of Mason Christmas morning.  He did get plenty of other things though: a really cool helicopter, a doctor kit, and of course some play dough.

Tucker had a very nice Christmas, but he did not open a lot of gifts.  We opened gifts just about the entire week I was at his house.  I can't believe how big he has gotten.  (He is bigger than Kendall!)

Gramms asked for a Sonicare tooth brush and a carpet steam cleaner.  Pops asked for a new pocket knife and the latest Glenn Beck book.  They were both pleasantly surprised with their Christmas haul.

On a side note, it is amazing how much Tucker looks like my dad.  If you look at old photos from my dad as a baby, it is just uncanny!

All in all, I think this was a VERY productive Christmas morning!

We have that train table and I can tell you that it does take HOURS to put it together. All I can say is keep the set up instructions for the tracks. When 2 three year olds get together they like to disassemble it. YIKES!!!
