Christmas Day

Happy Birthday, Jesus!
We are so thankful for the birth of Christ!  It's because of Him, we get to celebrate this special day.
We woke up Christmas morning to a room full of new presents!
 Santa left a pink car for Amelia and a red car for Jack.
 They both wanted the red car.  Amelia wanted nothing to do with her pink car.  For real little girl?!
 So as Jack happily opened more Christmas gifts, Amelia happily played in Jack's new red car.
 New number and letter magnets!
 A new umbrella
 Such a fun morning at home.
Next stop for the day was a trip over to Mom-mom & Pepa's house for breakfast and to exchange gifts.
 Jack is holding Aunt Hannah's gift here.  Apparently his goal for a large portion of the morning was to hide this gift from Hannah. He ran all over the house trying to keep it from her.  At one point I even saw him drag one of the kitchen chairs into the living room, climbing onto the chair and reaching up to the ceiling fan like maybe he could reach up there and hide it on top of a fan blade.  I had no idea he was so creative in his hiding places.  Luckily for Hannah, she eventually managed to get her gift away from this silly boy and open it.
 Amelia's favorite time of the morning was playing with all the wrapping paper that covered the floor.
 Checking out his new sticker book on Hannah's lap.
 Mom-mom & Pepa with a house full of kids and grand kids.
 Here was Aaron's impressive wrapping job with the gift he gave us.  Interesting.... :-)  Looks to me like he could benefit from a trip to some after Christmas clearance sales on gift wrap.
 Jack got an extra gift just for him from his Uncle Jake...Jack's first toy gun.
 Jack has been going around our house with his gun saying things like = "Where's the water?" - since he has only played with water guns before & "I'm gonna get that cat!" - we really have no idea how he thought of that :-/
 Our family Christmas morning
 Around lunch time GramPam & PaPa arrived at our house with a packed full car!
We enjoyed a fun afternoon together at home.
 Jack played with some of his new toys,
 and we opened more of our family gifts to each other.
 Jack finally got a turn in his new car.
 Looks to me like Amelia is only interested in all of Jack's toys.  She really did get her own gifts.
Such a fun day! That evening we all went back to my parents house for dinner and to celebrate with the Craig side of the family. Unfortunately I somehow got away without taking any pictures.
