Christmas morning came quickly, as it always does, fresh snow blanketed the neighborhood and the living room was still cloaked in darkness. The kids were SO EXCITED to get out there, so I hustled out first, turned on the tree, the fire and the Christmas music. The family followed promptly behind.
Santa surprised us all with a Cozy Coupe (Grandpa Craig found it near the garbage a week ago and knew Juliet would LOVE it!) and LOVE she does. She's even eaten all her meals in it for almost a week.
The big present to each kiddo this year was magna-tiles, which we already have, but growing your collection is the best and both kids were quite excited.
E got a new rc plane radio that he was quite excited about. He surprised me with quite a few things too, some Sherlock earrings, a book, Sherlock tea and new slippers. All fantastic.
Soon we bundled everyone up headed up to E's family's house. The snow was beautiful and didn't stop all day.
Three cousins in a row!
This little love is such a darling thing. She thinks her cousins are better than the presents. It's adorable.
We opened stockings and sat down to brunch. What a lovely way to spend the morning.
Lots of blurry happy pictures.
Joe's hilarious shirt was a present from his daughter Emilia. It was rainbow with a cat wearing sunglasses. High style.
E was quite thrilled with this!
Emilia and family gave James a wrecking ball set. Both kids spent a long time analyzing the box.
These two kept hugging and being adorable.
After the presents were opened and everyone began to relax these girls played "rocket ship" on the chair.
James got light up legos and he and E spent some time building. It was fairly impressive.
Happy Merry Christmas! Christmas evening coming up next!
