We started off the actual Christmas morning with matching pajamas as is our tradition.
We all paraded down the stairs singing Jingle Bells and someone was pretty excited to see what Santa brought.
Santa didn’t disappoint. Blake’s favorite part about Santa coming to the cabin was that he ate the cookies and the carrot we set out. Blake squealed with excitement to find the evidence that Santa was here. And he didn’t mind finishing off Santa’s crumbs for breakfast either.
There were a lot of fun toys involved.
And a few mix-ups. Todd received this present from “Grandma and Grandpa.” Oops, wrong tag.
Todd showered everyone with Jamaican souvenirs that exceeded the weight requirements for his baggage on the flight home from his mission. He left all of his clothes behind in order to bring us these treasures.
Nash woke up from his morning nap towards the end of the unwrapping to enjoy his first Christmas!
Not that he understood what was going on, but he enjoyed getting into the new toys and little tiny shreds of wrapping paper and ribbon.
I have fished many small things out of our little puppy’s mouth since the Christmas extravaganza. One day, he shoved 7 or 8 minuscule sparkly silver balls in his mouth. That was a fun one to tackle.
There’s nothing better than enjoying the excited expressions together on Christmas morning (and I like how Nash crawled on top of the present to get a better view).
The best gift of all is the love these two have for each other. I am so lucky to spend Christmas day and every day with our darling boys.
