Christmas Morning

Santa did, in fact, make a stop at the Smallie's house. A Christmas miracle for sure.

This is a picture of our tree before the kids walked in. I hope my kids never get on facebook and look at the pictures of other trees Christmas morning...some people posted pictures of their kids having more than 30 gifts each under the tree. Um, no thank you. :)

Four very relieved surprised happy kids!
After each gift, Cate would say "this is just what I wanted, how did Santa know?!"
Brady's new electric scooter (yes, mom, he always wears a helmet, just not on this test run). This scooter sparks...on purpose~as demonstrated by Bennett below

After a few minutes (literally) of oohing and ahhhing, we headed over to my parents house to celebrate with my aunt/uncle and my sisters family and eat a delicious breakfast. Favorite gift...big computer monitor--woohoo! And Disneyworld giftcards..double woohoo! After a close-to-perfect morning (only thing that would have made it better is if it started a few hours later!), we were back at home unloading the van and getting ready for our next celebration. Christmas is exhausting :)

Next up....lunch at Aunt Fran's.
