We started out our holiday with a visit from the grandparents.
The children gave them their presents. A couple of jar gifts (a dessert and a meal in a jar).
And their It's No Puzzle Picture Frame.
Then we went to our Candle Christmas Eve Service.
It had started snowing a little while earlier.
After the kids were in bed it was wrapping presents time. I always wait til Christmas Eve, not sure why.
Daddy putting together Baby Harold's Rocktivity Walk 'N Roll Rider.
More presents still need wrapped. We didn't get to bed until 5am.
All ready for Christmas morning.
The bags on the left hold the children's gifts to each other.
One of our Christmas morning traditions is that the girls can't come downstairs until everyone is ready. I hadn't expected them to get dressed, but Tabitha and Amelia did.
They were so happy to open the simple things, like the crayons and paints.
Modeling the slippers from grandma.
Baby Harold was so thrilled with the Elmo from sissy Krystal that we needed to use it to get him interested in other presents.
Gave him some Gerber puffs in his stocking (as there was no way he was getting chocolate). I gave him some for breakfast.
He absolutely loves the Shake and Roll Racer.
When he rolls the ball on the top it makes some great car sounds and starts rolling. He could also make it start up by shaking the rattle, but he prefers this way. His first remote control car, hehehe.
Sissy Krystal playing a game with Tabitha and Hannah.
My poor living room.
Snacky "lunch" with cheese and crackers and chips and spinach dip. Plus a birthday cake for Jesus.
He also loves his Drop and Giggle Giraffe.
So do his sisters.
He got to eat some of the turkey and stuffing.
Didn't really care for the mashed potatoes. I think they were a little thick. He ended up on my lap.
Looking forward to seeing your Wordless (or not so wordless) Wednesday posts this week.
