Christmas was a very laid back affair this year. We stayed home with our three little ones and took it easy.
Christmas Eve consisted of pizza at Round Table, delivering cookies to friends and the animated story of Christ's birth (or a "boring Heavenly Father movie" as Carson called it. After he said never-mind and that he liked it.) Luke had a slight fever, but seemed to be happier and more energetic later on during the day. The kids got matching jammies and slippers and Carson got a robe, very sophisticated I know. We left cookies and milk out for Santa and carrots and water for his reindeer and the boys were fast asleep by 7:20. Oh, I almost forgot to mention it was Luke's birthday! We wished Luke a happy birthday that morning and Luke and Carson both said that is was already Luke's birthday when we had the party. So we just left it at that and saved his birthday presents for the next day. =)

Christmas morning began at 5:15, but we put our foot down and wouldn't let them out of their room until 5:27... Carson took his job of sorting the presents very seriously. They both seemed pleased with their loot. To keep things simple (sensing a theme for this year) Steve and I didn't do much for each other and Kendall had the gift of warm milk.
Carson was most excited about his little science kits, alien gummy maker, leapster games, and his baking soda/vinegar rocket. Luke favorites are his Mickey puzzle, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse books, Lego Crocs, and the mustaches Carson gave him (see picture.) Carson's school had a little holiday gift shop where the kids could bring money and buy gifts for their family members. Such a cute idea. He bought Steve and plush football and a 49ers pencil. He got me a pink diamond necklace and a paperclip holder that says "#1 Mom". Luke got the mustaches and a squishy ball. Carson was SO EXCITED to give us our presents.
Kendall had a THRILLING first Christmas, as you can tell. She was entertained by watching her brothers open and play with all of their presents and is currently snoozing in her swing... We spent the rest of the morning playing with toys and doing crafts. We're planning on seeing a movie later this afternoon and barbequing tri-tip for dinner. Merry Christmas!!
