Christmas 2017

The kids were super excited to see what Santa had brought them. Todd told them they couldn't get up any earlier than they get up for school so they waited until 7 am to come into our room. We could hear them whispering through the house since 6 o' clock in the morning.

First, they read Santa's reply note, then we opened stockings. Lastly, we opened the gifts under the tree.

Emilia received a 3D pen, a razor 360 scooter, several books and an Eco Dot.  Stella got a new watch, a hatchimal, a makeup kit, lots of gel pens, a new sleeping bag and jewelry.

Carson received an MP3 player from santa, several books, clothing, a codemaster game and a Pokemon game for the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo switch is a new game console the whole family got for Christmas.

Santa brought Andrew a play kitchen. He also received several sound puzzles, blocks, and a coloring set.

This year my Christmas was all about the kitchen. I got a new skillet, a crepe maker, and new set of kitchen pots. I also received an August Smart Lock and keypad for the back door. Now I can open the door with my cell phone or by entering a code on the keypad.

Todd received a smart picture frame that links to the internet to receive new photos. He also received a car jump starter power bank and a new set of gaming headphones.

After opening presents, we spoke with Eva and then the rest of my family in Georgia. Todd's parents also stopped by to see what everyone had received.

We finished up the day by going over to their house for Christmas dinner and exchanging gifts with the family there. Avery also got a 3D printing pen so the girls came back to our house afterward to check out their new toys.

Every year I struggle remembering how I have decorated the house in years past and end up having to do it all over again. This year I have taken picture so that I won't have to rely on my memory.
