Christmas Morning

Matt and I woke up bright and early on Christmas morning and as usual the kids slept in.  Ha!  The one day of the year.  Actually we woke them up around 6:45.  We did enjoy the quiet before they got up.  Sitting by the tree and looking at the presents!
Ben's stash for the year - a new 24 inch bike and Panthers stuff!
Kate's stuff - a doll diner and horse and lots of little surprises.
Adult stockings!
They were so excited to get up and check out their gifts!!
 I love Christmas morning!!  Seeing happy smiles and faces and squeals of joy.  It is so much fun!!

The giant candy was a big hit!
After opening stockings and checking out the Santa gifts, we had our traditional Christmas morning breakfast of orange rolls and pigs in a blanket.
Then it was time to open our gifts to one another.  Kate loved her Shopkins holder.
The kids worked so hard picking out gifts for each other and they couldn't wait for the other to open it.  Kate was so excited for Ben to open the Lego she got him.
Ben got Kate a WiiU  Barbie game!  They were both so happy!
Kate's mermaid blankie tail was a huge hit!
I asked for and got several new pairs of sunglasses!
The rest of the day was spent playing and cleaning up.  I love the Christmas morning mess!
Christmas morning selfies!

Ben and Matt played some of their new games.
Kate played dolls all day!
Ben got a lot of new football movies so we watched several of them.
It rained all day long!  And when I say rained I mean poured.  It did not stop raining.  There were some serious flooding issues all around us.  Lots of roads closed and craziness.
Mema and Opa braved the flooding and came over to play some games and see all the presents.
It was a perfect Christmas morning!
