Christmas 2010

I don't have a lot to share here, but here's a glimpse of our day.We woke up and got dressed and did stockings first.  Then breakfast though a certain 4-yr old was {probably} too excited for the day he didn't even want the yummy sweet rolls I'd made!  His loss!  After breakfast we did presents and played and chilled out the rest of the day....

unloading stockings
the kids got gum, their own personal chapstick, a small book, a sack of chocolate coins.  And Hannah got glittery Dora finger polish, a mini Dora book.  And Eli got a bunch of cars and a new train figure.
Eli had specifically asked for a pair of overalls.  So I found some and that was the first thing he asked for in the morning.  LOL  So we got dressed first and went on with the stockings.  =)

Eli's big present was this cashier set.  Thought it would be fun for practicing money ideas and counting and simple math.  I had to take the coins out (too small for being around Carter) but both kids otherwise love it.

hangin' with Dad.  I'm surprised he actually sat in Daddy's lap the whole time!

an old toy we wrapped to give again (poor third-child syndrome again!)

Dora panties!  We really didn't just give her all Dora stuff, just happens to be what things were pictured.  We don't even watch much Dora, she just loves the character!
Eli loves music, so I got the kids several musical instruments this year. (anything BUT a drum) xylophone, tambourine, rain stick, this caged bell (that Carter loved all morning!), plus the maracas and jingle bells we already had.

oh yes, the aftermath
playing with one of Daddy's gifts, a small air hockey table.

Looks like a fun day. I love it that Eli WANTS overalls. Brooks refuses to wear them anymore. I hate it when they grow up and get their own style, I love overalls:-)
