Christmas 2008

We had such a nice Christmas this year and Santa thoroughly spoiled the kids this year! On Christmas Eve, we played games, set out some cookies and milk and the kids got to open their new jammies.

In their jammies just before being banished to bed!
It was really nice because Natalie and Robbie went right to sleep and by 8:00 PM, Shawn and I were able to finish up the last minute things! We even got to bed ourselves by 10:30. Then after a very restful night sleep, we had to wake the kids up at 7:00 AM! We thought for sure that last year would be the last year we would be able to sleep in on Christmas morning! It was so nice, especially because I remember Christmasses when I was little when we woke my Mom and Dad up as early as 4:00 AM! I made a quick run downstairs to turn on the lights (except the tree because half the strand shorted out *cry*) and to get the video camera ready.

Here are the kids waiting on the stairs to see what Santa brought!
And this is what they found!

Unfortunately, the rest of the experience is on video so I can't share any of that with you just yet but Natalie and Robbie had a great time opening up their stockings and presents!
