Christmas morning is always such a special time. The kids are pretty good about getting up and staying in their rooms until we come to get them. They don’t peek over the banister but cover their eyes and sit at the top of the stairs until we give them the go ahead to run downstairs to see what they got from Santa. Usually there are some stuffed animals that accompany some of the kids downstairs. This year from Santa Abby got the Lego Friends hotel, Emma got a brand new camera, Peter got snowshoes and a Lego Technic set, and Andrew also got snowshoes and a spy cam robot. After relishing in the fact that they got what they wanted from Santa it was onto finding the pickle ornament in the Christmas tree. The tradition is that whoever finds the pickle gets to open up the first gift. This year we had two pickles and both of the girls found them. We all got lots of fun gifts this year and thoroughly enjoyed our day of gift giving, eating, playing, and pure laziness.
