It all began on Christmas Eve . . .
Ben and I had a late night, of course, just setting everything up - plus we watched some old, and slightly odd, movie.
At 1am the 3 youngest were in the bathroom all soaking their feet. We told them to go back to bed. I think they were up around 5:30 or so, but they waited until 6:30 - the allotted time - to wake us up!
Christmas morning! The girls got a gym mat and roll-out beam and lots of leotards from Santa. See Lucy's face? It's a classic! Here it is up close because I love it so:
Then we enjoyed our Christmas breakfast (cheese braid bread, sausage, and orange julius) and got ready for church:
After church we came home and opened up our wrapped gifts. It was fun and the kids were happy with all they got.
Emmy's "big" gift was a camcorder/camera. She shrieked with joy when she opened it! Lots of picture and videos have been taken in the past day . . . :)
We finished the day watching the new Annie, as picked by Emmy. :)
It was a great and lovely day. I actually really loved having Christmas on Sunday. We are blessed indeed!
