Christmas Eve ~
Our wreath on the front door with the "Santa Key" added. The Santa Key was something I found while shopping for Cam's first Christmas as we didn't have a fireplace back then it was perfect...I had almost packed this away for good (AKA scrapbooked it LOL) because we didn't need it in St. Helens. Well, I am glad I never got around to it because it has come in handy at this house!
Santa made it safe and sound ~
He must have really liked those cookies!
Alex and Cam's loot. As much as I promised Alex I'd have his stocking done for this year it just didn't happen. My goal now is to finish it by New Year's so I can get started on Ian's.
Mark's family had a tradition of the kids waiting for the parents before they could check things out. My side, we kids were allowed to get into the Santa gifts before waking the parental units. Of course, there are tons of stories about how that all happened...right Uncle Keith? At least, we don't change the time on the clocks LOL Anyway, I digress, it was important for Mark that we continued his tradition of having the kids wait...so it's become mine to make sure to grab that first photo of the morning. In this house it's a bit of torture for the boys as I make them sit on the stairs where they can see but not touch the Santa gifts!
Checking out the Santa gifts!
Christmas Morning ~
Our big gift to the boys is a trampoline. Unfortunately they were out of stock by the time Mark was able to get over there so I made up a little scroll so they would know it was coming. We should have it mid-January. We're all excited and can't wait to set it up for a major bouncing bunch of fun.
And Christmas Dinner ~
