CHRISTMAS MORNING!! There is literally nothing more exciting when you're a kid. And watching your own kids experience Christmas morning is ten times better!!
Boston and Camden were up bright and early, and ready to see if Santa came. They were giddy!
|^Chaotic, blurry happiness.^|
Santa brought Boston the Ironman dart blasters he wished for, and he could not have been more excited. He popped those puppies out immediately!
|^Camden got a HUGE box of wooden puzzles, which are pretty much his favorite things ever. He couldn't wait to dive right in!^|
|^I love these boys.^|
|^He's pointing to the Santa on his stocking, and saying, "Ho ho ho!"^|
|^Lots and lots of BOOKS! His favorite.^|
|^Brothers, just checking out the loot.^|
|^Also, check out Boston in the back. He's shooting Holland's dog with his Ironman darts. Haha!^|
After we opened presents, we got ready and headed to church for the Christmas service! I love when Christmas falls on a Sunday. It's so nice to be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas amidst the Santa and presents hoopla.
It was such a great program!
Then we came back home and crashed on the couch while the kids had a blast with all of their new toys. Christmas is just the best.
|^The magic track. Coolest toy ever! The car goes around the track by itself.^|
|^The Paw Patrol Lookout! A favorite present of Cam's from Grandma Mac^|
When I started to stress about the state of disaster my house was in, I kept repeating a Brene Brown quote over and over in my head: "The magic is in the mess."
Because really, it is. And it's what Christmas with kids is all about.
|^Love this man.^|
|^COVERED in dust. Haha!^|
|^Cam got a tad impatient with the digging tools, and just tried to bite the dino out. So nasty.^|
|^Holland Beck, just up from his nap.^|
|^Hey, Elders! (From L-R, Lane, Haws, Millet, and Parks)^|
Now, here's a creepy picture of Camden's face in a Santa baby outfit to end this post. You're welcome.
|^Haha! I can't get over how weird this is.^|
