Christmas Day!!!

Finally morning arrived!
We had told the kids not to wake us or each other up before 6am. I started to hear little footsteps around 5:40am and at 6 on the dot all three kiddos were in our room ready to head downstairs. It is so fun to watch  their reactions and see them trying to take it all in.
And Preston has not mentioned a double bike since before Christmas, so I think he was happy enough with what he did get to forget all about it :-). I was worried!

My favorite gifts of the morning definitely were from Ella to Addie and Preston. I'm so used to Addie writing cute notes and doing sweet things but Ella isn't usually as open about sharing her feelings. She took a lot of time wrapping up some things of hers she knew they would like and wrote each of them a sweet note as well. So cute!

Later on in the morning everyone came over to our house for Christmas brunch. I really look forward to this meal! We had two different egg dishes, gingerbread and regular waffles, sausage, fruit, potatoes, orange juice and hot chocolate. I LOVE breakfast food :-). After hanging out a bit it was off to the movies and then back to my parent's house that night for prime rib sandwiches and other yummy snacks and one last night of hanging out together. Scott gave us a sneak peak at his fireworks show for New Year's Eve as well. I wish I had taken more pictures, but it was a fun end to the first half of our holiday fun.
