I was the first one up Christmas morning, which is a surprise because I'm usually the last one lately! It wasn't long before Aiden was up and I spied him peeking down the stairs as I was on my way to the bathroom. I sent him to wake Patrick up and then we heard Emma. Everyone was excited to see what Santa brought so we headed downstairs!
|Em has no clue what's going on|
|"Wow!" was her response when she finally saw everything!|
|The Mario pillow and shopping cart were the first things that caught their eyes|
|And she's gone shopping...|
Aiden also had a great Christmas and got all kinds of stuff! Santa came through and got him the 3 things he wanted the most: a talking Lightning McQueen, a color changing Lightning McQueen, and a DS! He wasn't too impressed with his new clothes unless they came with SpongeBob or Mario on them.
|A fire power Mario was in his stocking!|
|Insisting we stop and put on one of her new hair bows|
|All dolled up|
|Going through stockings|
|Hanging out in her new princess tent|
|Here's some trash|
|He liked something a lot!|
|Em's too busy for pictures|
|Checking out her new clothes|
|Sitting in her new chair opening presents|
|Aiden was very excited to show Emma what he picked out for her|
|His talking Lightning McQueen|
|Good little Mommy|
|What is it, Aiden?|
|Taking her babies shopping|
|Aiden picked out Mario pajamas to give to Patrick : )|
Is that perfect or what??
After presents we were able to hang out and play with their toys before heading to my grandmothers. We were planning on heading over to the cemetery to visit Mom & Kevin but after opening gifts there just wasn't enough time and it was probably better to keep this as a happy day.
Here's a couple pictures of the kids in their Christmas outfits before we headed out.
|I love this one!|
|She's more interested in his feet|
|And now he's gotta check her out|
|Funny face time!|
|The Christmas Grouch!|
|Merry Christmas (2011)|
