Our Christmas in a few pictures

Christmas was very relaxing this year (it usually is). The kids had a great time opening presents and an even greater time playing with said gifts. Although the windows look dark in the pictures the sun was well up by the time they got up. This year Blake was really into Santa, so we had to have a few talks about Santa. One of our endless discussions was that Santa brings one present and fills your stocking with candy. He was convinced that all the presents under the tree were from Santa, um no, I did not go through the crowds just for Santa to get all the credit. In the end he was excited that Santa visited, ate his cookies, drank his soda and left him and Kalli a present. Blake with his loot. He was very diplomatic and played with all his toys equally. Joe got Blake the 1700+ mega blocks set that literally he worked on all day (he had three more to build at 11 that night that he just left for the next day). It was really fun shopping for Kalli this year because as long as it's girly or princess she'll love it! Her little chest of dress up clothes was a huge hit. She had already done four costume changes in a very short time. Her kitchen was a huge hit this year also. She loves playing in it. Oddly enough, her favorite part of playing in the kitchen is washing her hands. She also asks us to go wash our hands. I'm not quite sure where she gets this stuff. I should have gotten a picture at the beginning of this project. This was the result of the 1700+ mega blocks set. It was a construction set that he put together for Blake. At least his work has been appreciated, Blake loves the new set.
It was nice to spend a quiet relaxing day with the family enjoying being together and playing together. We hope you each had a very Merry Christmas!

Sooo much loot! It's so fun playing with the kids' toys! Does Kalli have her "made with love" socks on in the picture?
