Christmas Eve & Christmas Day

Just a little Christmas Scrap.
We had a wonderful couple of days.
Hope you did too.
I really do LOVE Christmas.
It is sometimes stressful, but in the end, it was all love, fun, and family!

My brother has always loved christmas. He is still just as enthralled. He shares the same amount of excitement as each one of the children in our family. He used to wake me up before the sun rose and you could feel the excitement coming from him like electricity. At the point he woke me up he already opened his stocking and counted each of our presents to make sure Santa remembered that we needed equal shares. Our house was always frigid because our only heat came from a wood stove. So we would creep downstairs and sit teeth chattering, bundled in layers and shake each of our gifts and try to guess what could be inside. It is one of my favorite childhood memories. The above picture of my brother and dad laughing brought this vivid memory back. In Troy's stocking he got some trick gum that gave an actual electric shock. It was the hit of the evening as the men in the family took turns shocking eachother. I will have to say that it was true proof that women are smarter. We each declined the gum, while the boys did it multiple times.
I would like you to notice the many wardrobe changes of Lily. She decided to sleep in that purple dress, cause if you wear jammies, you might be asked to take off the tights. Santa brought her some jammie shorts he found. She will only wear shorts as jammies. They are quite hard to find this time of year. Santa had to use some christmas magic. And lastly the day would not be complete without wearing your wedding dress as least once.
When Lily really wants something and she isn't sure if she can have it she whispers it in my ear. She says Mommy I have a secret.....so after all the presents were open and our breakfast was eaten she whispered in my ear. Mommy can Santa come back again. Needless to say the man with the scary beard was a hit. Her favorite christmas gifts were the set of matchbox cars and the baby doll that came complete with highchair, stroller, and playpen.

This next picture is for Hannah she suggested this little bear set (and Santa took her up on the idea) and there has never been a better spot for a teeny tiny bear family.

I love the bear train!! I am glad they were a hit. Sophia is obsessed with all things small so I understand.

I laughed at the tights, Sophia does that too! What is it with them? Who would want to sleep in tights?? Crazy girls.

Your brother sounds just like my middle brother...he used to wake me up for Christmas too.
