Christmas Day 2018

Christmas morning we just stayed home all day!! I love this tradition! The kids woke up between 8:00 and 8:30 and we went into the living room together to see what Santa brought for them. Jackson got a new bike and Avery got the LOL Surprise Doll house she had been wanting "so badly!" They were both so surprised and happy! They also went through their stockings and we took our time and opened all of our presents one at a time. It was a wonderful Christmas morning!!

After we opened all our presents, Jackson went outside to ride his bike for a little while and Avery played with some of her new toys while I made a Christmas tree out of cinnamon rolls for a late breakfast. I had seen the idea on Facebook and decided to try it. They turned out so cute!

For the rest of the day, Jake and I put toys together (me the LOL dollhouse and Jake the basketball hoop). Then we all went outside for a little while to play some basketball. It was a nice day outside so it was perfect for the outdoor toys Jackson got. Our neighbors next-door came out to play as well.

After playing outside for a while, we went in to eat some dinner and the kids both put on some of their new pajamas that they got for Christmas. Avery got a pair of Violet pajamas (Violet is from the movie Incredibles) and a Violet stuffed toy and Jackson got a pair of Avengers pajamas along with a Captain America stuffed toy. They both loved them and couldn't wait to put them on.

Jackson also got the last 2 Dog Man books he had been wanting for Christmas. He had gotten the first three already when the book-fair was at his school, but he got the last 2 at two different Christmas get-to-gathers over the weekend. He was so excited to get them.

We had such a great Christmas day this year! Probably one of the best in my opinion! I'm already looking forward to next year!
