Christmas in our house...

Christmas for us started on the 23rd...when my honey informed me that he had the 23rd and the 24th off!!!!...that makes the most time off, for Christmas , that he has had since we have known each other...it was heavenly...
Christmas Eve...we enjoyed hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows with breakfast...
...and breakfast was yummy, gooey cinnamon rolls...
...there was just a tad of excitement in the air...I think for all Moses knew daddy had off work and tomorrow was Jesus birthday...
...after Moses went to bed we set up these lights...leading from his room down to the tree...a little Christmas critter leading the way on each step...
...one of my favorite parts of being a parent is playing Santa. :) We got everything ready and just right...
...This little guy was waiting outside of Moses' bedroom door so he could see him first thing!!
...Moses was thrilled to have such a greeting on Christmas morning (he is naked because the first thing he does every morning is run to use the potty). :) I thought the snowman would save him some dignity. :)
...after he was dressed and ready to go downstairs, his excitement bubbled over at all of the Christmas critters showing him the way...
...just wish I could bottle the emotions a child shows on Christmas morning...
...he opened a couple of little gifts...then we managed to talk him into having some breakfast. :)
...our Christmas morning breakfast is monkey bread...mmmmm....this was the first time Moses got to have some (after he finished his oatmeal)...
...it was just about gone by lunch time...
...then back to the gifts...I was amazed at how much time he took with each gift...we spent the rest of the morning playing and hanging out...
...then both of the boys had to nap (Doug had to work Christmas night)...then we had dinner (chicken francaise and homemade mac and cheese) and sang happy birthday to Jesus (led by Moses) and had birthday cake. :) So basically we spent Christmas time relaxing, spending time together, playing and laughing and doing whatever we wanted. :) I think it was my favorite Christmas to date...my favorite gift?...besides having Doug home for TWO DAYS...my favorite gift is that my honey is treating me to a prenatal massage!!! :) Makes me forget that I was sick for Christmas...but makes me remember that I have the best husband e.v.e.r. :)
After Doug went to work I ended the night like this... :) Smiling the whole time at having such a wonderful family...I hope your Christmas was just as blessed...I would love to hear about it. :)
