Christmas 2010

This year it was so much fun to see our kids excitement and pure joy during the Christmas season.  I am amazed at how even the little things were so meaningful and magical to the kids.  Some of my favorite Christmas highlights were:

Putting out reindeer food on Christmas eve for Santa’s reindeer

Leaving cookies for Santa…Parker & Piper insisted that the cookies be put IN the fire place so Santa could get them as soon as he came down the chimney.

The goodies Santa left for the kids.  The girls got dolls and Parker got not 1 but 2 firetrucks (Santa went thrift shopping and got a great deal…so he couldn’t resist!)

The kids wanting to help everyone open their presents.  Their wonderful uncles indulged their request and it was funny to see them get so excited about what was inside.

Watching the kids enjoy their gifts

And most of all spending time with our families.
