Christmas Eve

Night-Before-Christmas-Book
Every year we read Twas The Night Before Christmas, and well, this year... Nathan read it! I cannot believe my boy can read so well now... if I had put this book in front of him last summer, he wouldn't have been able to read it as well.


Cookies-for-Santa
I let each of them pick out 3 cookies each for Santa


Ready-to-Open-Gifts
Then, we went to the candle light church service. While I was loading the kids in the car, Brian brought all of their gifts upstairs... they would be surprised after church by Santa's visit!


Nat-trying-to-get-into-Santa-bag
They LOVED how Santa had left a little Santa bag for each of them filled with toys.


Autumn-and-her-BIG-gift
There was a big gift outside Autumn's Santa bag that she unwrapped first.


Nat-Airplane
Nathan got a lego set, he really wanted an airplane because we are going to be flying to Disney this summer


Aut-Doggy-Doo
Autumn really wanted a game called Doggy Doo (don't ask)


Nathan-Skylander
And, Nathan has been asking and asking Santa for the Skylanders game for the Wii.


Aut-Easy-Bake
Autumn was excited about her Easy Bake oven, we are going to try it out this weekend... I've heard mixed comments about it... 


Nathan-with-Marshmallow-Gun
Nathan has been really wanting a jumbo Marshmallow gun since they had them at cub scouts, Autumn got a mini marshmallow gun. I keep telling Nathan not to shoot his eye out.


Brian-with-Marshmallow-Gun
Or, maybe I should be more worried about Brian having the marshmallow shooter. Ha!


Nat-Unwrapping
I made sure the Santa paper for Nathan was Mickey, since he's so excited to go to Disney.


Nathan-with-Santa-Bag
Finally, we reached the end of the gifts... but, oh wait. Those were Santa gifts... Brian and I had special gifts for the kids from us.


Opening-mini-iPads

Autumn-on-couch-with-Mini-iPad
We decided to get both of the kids their very own mini iPad. Nathan's is black with a blue case and Autumn's is white with a pink case. Nathan can play Skylanders on it, take pictures and movies (he's been wanting a camera) and Autumn loves to take pictures and play games, too. Autumn also loves to listen to music on hers with her headphones.
