Images of Christmas

Our Christmas was quite lovely, especially given its ugly predecessor, Christmas Eve. Here are a few snapshots from our morning.

The holiday dawned bright and early (dark and early?) for us; the boys gave us the wake-up call at 6:00 a.m.

Santa was good to us (even the naughty boys...). He brought a pogo stick for Zach, an electric guitar for Tyler, and a Little People farm for Gavin. The tree bottom was full of presents from dear grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins from far away.

One of Zach's favorite presents: a paper airplane instruction manual from Tyler. Also note the track pants from Granny & Gramps on top of his pajamas.

Tyler was delighted with his guitar. Santa forgot batteries (oops!) but he had other spoils to keep him busy that day....

...such as this deep-sea creature and an explorer boat (big-kid tub toys).
Another favorite: a space shuttle with astronauts and aliens.

My favorite present (thanks, boys!).

Gavin was just delightful all morning. So many new things to discover!

Apparently Garry thought Gavin's stuff was pretty fun, too.

And our delicious hot breakfast: eggs, bacon, hash browns, and juice. I had some leftover white hot chocolate -- yum. We also made caramely, pumpkiny sweet rolls for dessert. Dessert at 9:00 a.m. on Christmas is perfectly legal!
