Christmas Unwrapped

Here's some of our Christmas pictures; yes I'm a few days behind. We had a nice relaxing Christmas at home with the kids. The kids were thrilled that Santa had come. Kenzie woke us up at 6:45 am, which is longer than we waited as kids!! ;) I ended up waking Aydan up at about 7:15 am because Kenzie was ready to get started and I figured Aydan would be excited too once he knew what was going on. As Aydan gets older, he is starting to really enjoy opening his gifts. It took him a little longer than it did Kenzie because after he opened each gift, he wanted it out of the package so he could play with it. We had to keep telling him he had more to open.

Kenzie passing out all the gifts.

Still trying to get woke up.

Aydan's new semi/car carrier from Grandma Judy.

Kenzie and her BFC (Best Friends Club) doll. It came with a journal and lock & key. I think that was her favorite part ;)

Playing with his robotic dinosaur.

This Thomas the train track was definately one of Aydan's favorite toys. He played with it almost non-stop practically all weekend. The train is battery powered and goes along the track by itself. He just loves to watch it go around and around. We've already been to the store to purchase more track and another train (and lots more batteries!!!)

Kenzie holding up her bath and body stuff she got in her stocking. I think it makes her feel so grown up! She's my big girl!

Wearing his new safety glasses and flashlight. He's ready to go to work. He loves to play with our flashlight so this works out perfectly!!

After the kids opened up their gifts, they spent the morning taking everything out of its packaging!! LOL, not really but I can't believe how much wire and tape and cardboard is used on kids toys! I about had to cut Barbie's hair to get the wires and rubber bands out of it! But anyway, that morning the kids were able to just lounge around and play with all of their new things.
For the first time ever, I made our Christmas dinner. It turned out pretty well. We had honey baked ham, corn casserole, cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole, fruit salad, rolls, and pumpkin pie. Yes, it was a lot of food for us but we ate leftovers all weekend!
We ended up having a very nice, relaxing Christmas at home. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas too!!
