Nathanael looking at his new WonderPets book
Taliesin, upon opening his Elizabeth Swann poster, exclaiming, "Oh, it's cute!"
The only present Nathanael wanted this year - a big scoop!
"Mom! It's a Wall-E calendar!"
As you can tell, my regular camera was not working well early Christmas morning. It was actually because the sun was just coming up, and there was not enough light to take good pictures. So I grabbed my cellphone and took these Christmas morning pictures.
We had a wonderful Christmas! I you all did as well! On Christmas Eve, Taliesin and Nathanael baked cookies for Santa and cut up carrots for the reindeer. On Christmas morning, they were amazed to find that Santa had written a note to them, thanking them! We opened presents, then enjoyed playing with new toys, listening to Christmas music, and preparing Christmas dinner. Christmas afternoon, we went by my brother's house and visted there for a while and exchanged gifts. Then my sister, her husband, and my dad came over to our house last night for dinner and a movie (The Dark Knight - I knew Kelsey would get it for me!). We had some fun Christmas memories. Two of my favorites were watching Nathanael swaying and singing, "Santa, baby, hurry down the chimney tonight" - along with the radio. He was really getting into it. :^) And Taliesin and Nathanael made up a wonderful island dance to go along with Kenny Chesney's version of "Jingle Bells," too! :^)
