Here are the kids last night eagerly awaiting their traditional one Christmas Eve present from Sara and I, pajamas.
The kids had a great Christmas. Our festivities began last weekend with my family's gathering in Indy, continued yesterday with our annual pilgrimage to Kokomo to visit with Sara's family on Christmas Eve, and concluded today with a fun filled day here at home. This year we were happy to be joined on Christmas morning by Grandma Susie and Papa Don. The kids always get so excited to have them around.
Parker made sure that we didn't forget to put our cookies and carrots for Santa and his reindeer.
He was also quick to remind us to put the tray of flour outside of the front door so that we could track where Santa walked through the house. He could hardly contain his excitement this morning when he woke up and peeked downstairs and saw these footprints.
Here are the very excited boys making their way downstairs to see what Santa had brought for them.
No Smarties necessary to get Addy to smile for this one...
...or this one.
Santa never forgets Max.

Molly either wanted to be considered a Christmas present or simply couldn't find a way out from behind all of the packages. Maybe a little of both.
Our little cowgirl.
What boy wouldn't love a Buzz Lightyear Snuggie?
