Our Christmas Day!

So, about 7:00 pm Christmas Eve, Ruger came running into the living room completely paranoid that Santa was going to burn up when he came down our chimney. At first his concern was just with the presents and then the longer he thought about it, the more frightened he became. So we sat him down and explained that daddy would make sure the fireplace was a comfortable temperature for Santa. And that we did. We made our cookies, Santa ate a few and the dog ate the rest.
About 5:30 am we all woke up to make sure our presents were safe...this was the first picture Jason captured...Isn't it lovely?Sawyer was a little more awake...
To my dismay, there was not a single lump of coal. Instead there was a leapster 2, a tool bench, transformers, the list goes on...these little guys must have behaved pretty well this year! Though they certainly are a little goofy!
I think this was the most exciting year for us so far with our children. They both understood really well what was going on and who Santa was. Their happiness and expressions were priceless throughout the whole day.
I stepped outside for only a brief moment, you can see why I came back in.
And then this photo was snapped last weekend at Jason's little brother's Homecoming from South Korea. I know, another family photo!

I hope your Christmas was fantastic as well!

So fun and so cute! The funny thing is Everett and Jonathan were totally wearing the exact or almost exact same pj's on Christmas Day! When I post pics you'll have to come take a look. Hope the rest of your holiday is great!

What great pictures. Especially the family one! I love the picture of the tree outside. Christmas is so much fun through the eyes of a child. It's such a small window of time that they believe in Santa. Glad you guys had a wonderful day! Love all the pics of the boys in their jammies. Adorable!

Cute, I cant believe Jason's hair... it looks red! We almost called you today to ask for Jason to come unlock my dads pickup... we locked the kids in it... running. But we called the sheriffs office and they send a nice guy over. What a day!

Glad Santa didn't burn up in your chimney, that would probably be pretty smelly! Taylor and Trace were also worried about the fireplace...Looks like the boys really scored for gifts! Love the family photo!
