Milk and cookies left out by the chimney were all eaten.
Christmas morning came and all the adults in the house were awake, waiting on the two girls to excitedly burst through the doors. And we waited, and we waited and we waited. Finally we just went and woke them up! Sleepy heads, get out of bed!
Coming down the hall....
And plop on the couch to take it all in. After some encouragement we finally got them to go investigate!

When the aunts, uncles and cousins started arriving, guess who really liked the pink little tent? Yep, Uncle Cody!
Grandpa and Grandpa's Christmas extravaganza! Lucy, Holly, Sabrina, Sammy, Maddie and Izzie's toys laid out in piles. These all stay in the toy room covered by blankets until after breakfast.

Then we lead the kids in and let them have at it!
And this is where Nanny says every year, "Have you ever seen a Christmas like this? I've never seen a Christmas like this!"
Then the grown ups sit around and open presents while the kids go play.
I found the pickle ornament this year. It was hiding under this Christmas tree hat.
A little bit of football, on a beautiful Texas Christmas Day.
Holly found Daddy sleeping in the tent. I think next year, I need to get one of these for Cody.
Holly squeezed in with him.
And this is where we all lined the kids up, screamed and hooted and hollered at them trying to get one decent picture. Which I did not get. I'm hoping one of my sister-in-laws got a better shot.
And the kids with Nanny.
And the kids with Grandma and Grandpa. Maybe I can photoshop a tie on Grandpa?
