Christmas Pictures Make Me Smile

I hope and trust that all of you had a wonderful Christmas Day. It was a busy one over here that’s for sure! A 4 1/2 year-old and an almost 17-month-old makes for one fun, hectic, exciting Christmas morning.

But it all started the night before.

We put out cookies and milk for Santa.

Sprinkled the reindeer food on the lawn so Rudolph could find our house.

Santa visited all the houses in Midway via fire truck to make sure all the kids were ready for bed.

Andrew and I assembled a play kitchen that came in a bazillion pieces.

And we almost had a near disaster on our hands when Linc came upstairs while we were working on the kitchen. Thankfully the kitchen was a gift from Nanny and Poppy, and Santa had not been to our house yet so we put him back to bed and he stayed there until morning – phew!

Linc was sad Christmas Eve because he didn’t want Kipper his elev to leave but he was fine in the morning.

I didn’t take very many pictures as I was too busy enjoying the moment and joining in on the fun, but here are a few from throughout the day – both kids have been getting hours of entertainment out of the kitchen already.

Santa was good to me too. Goodbye iPhone 3GS – hello iPhone 5s.
