What's more fun for kids than Christmas morning? This year Sophie helped fill plates for everyone's delicious breakfast. She was very patient waiting for the presents.
Sophie holds her new Furby while Ellen reads basic Furby language. "Can I get a what, what?".
Really, really big presents are always fun!
Annabelle enjoyed opening presents in Daddy's loving arms.
Riding a new tricycle in the house is fun, but it's more fun outside with a backpack in mild December weather.
When morning ends it's nice to know there will be more presents before dinner at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Goodies cover the floor and kids are safely enveloped in a happy family embrace.
My best present this year was sharing the day with Ellen, Keegan, Sophie, Annabelle, and C.
People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
When I say that I'm o.k. well they look at me kind of strange
Surely you're not happy now you no longer play the game
People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball
I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go
