all i can say is my kids got completely spoiled this year!!! santa was very good good to them...and so was grandparents and aunts and uncles!!! it was so much fun. we carried on a tradition that I grew up with...only my kids added the cutest little twist!! santa used to leave our stockings at the end of our beds, that way we could wake up and dig in and let our parents sleep just a little longer!!! so we have been doing that since our kids were babes and this year was too funny!! haillee snuck into our room and came to my side of the bed and said...mommy, delainey is awake, can i get her? i said wouldn't you rather go see if santa came? she replies no he hasn't come yet...i'm thinking what???? i told her to go check again and by this time dakota had woken up and followed his sister to the living room. of course they come tearing back to our bedroom....mommy, mommy (why not daddy, daddy?!!!) santa came and look he left a note!!! i asked is that all he left??? no he left presents too!! wow, that is too cool...where did he leave your stockings?? oh...haillee lets go check. mommy he left them in our rooms...look!!! by now dakota and haillee are bringing their stockings back to our room. dakota puts his on our bed and goes and gets his baby sisiter out of her crib and all three of them pile on our bed and tear into their stockings. huh...so much for the little bit of extra sleep!!! but i said to my husband that i wouldn't have changed a thing about that morning...in fact it's one of my favourite memories of this year. here are some pictures of our christmas...hope yours was full of great memories and lots of love!!!
