it was great fun until reed decided to get the stomach bug. poor kid. we made use of that good feeling right after you throw up to open our one present on christmas eve. new pjs for everybody!
reed went to bed early, and the others roasted marshmallows to make s'mores for santa. and themselves!
the reindeer didn't leave our house with an empty belly. william and wes made sure to sprinkle reindeer food ALL over the yard.
and after a good night's sleep, they waited at the top of the stairs and came down together to see what santa left for them.
they didn't waste any time getting down to business!
these two were mucho excited about their snakes.
and william got his beloved buzz!
they took a break to check out the snow before checking out their stockings! it was still coming down!
after looking at the loot in their stockings,
we decided to take the fun outside! what a fun break on christmas morning!
then we warmed up with hot chocolate, breakfast, and a birthday cake for jesus!
and since we hadn't even gotten around to the presents under the tree, we hit those next.
reed showing off his shot.
after all the playing (and recovering from the stomach bug), reed was slap worn out!
the rest of us felt pretty much the same way! however, this white christmas was really beautiful. i think i'm going to ask santa for one every year!!
merry christmas, everybody!
