Merry Christmas to all, we celebrated our Lord Jesus' birth today and as our family tradition we were visited by Santa Claus for the children. As usual all the "older kids" and parents were up first, we eventually had to go get the girls out of bed as we wanted to make sure they had the chance to see what Santa brought them and were able to open all the presents that have been under the tree that we get for each other prior to Eddie having to leave to go lead worship at his church.
Lauren seemed to be a little confused at first, she was not really sure why she had several presents from Santa and not just one. She also was a little hesitant to rip open the wrapped presents - but quickly caught on with the help of our pro - Hannah!
Eddie's parents joined us in the afternoon for dinner and brought some gifts for the kids with them, so they were excited that opening presents went beyond just what they got that morning.
Here are some pictures from the day.
