Christmas Day

Christmas morning, the kids woke us up around 7:30, and they couldn't wait to see their gifts. Keith woke Keeley up because he didn't want her to miss out on the fun family time.
The kids always seem to go to sleep on Christmas Eve without putting their stockings out, so the next morning, they are never quite sure where to look for their stuff. Sareny was excited to get a karoake machine.
Finley looked at the stuff in her stocking for a while before realizing the cool castle on the floor was also hers.
Sareny got this cool teeny-bopper magazine, featuring One Direction.
Sareny and Isaac's school had a holiday gift shop, and I gave them money to buy some presents there. Isaac especially was so cute--he was so excited for what he got me. Earlier in the month, Keith asked him if they needed to go shopping to get something to go with what he bought me there, and Isaac said, "No, I know she will love it!" On Christmas morning, he searched under the tree to find my present, and then sat and watched me open it. I gotta say, I was pretty excited to open it and see what it was!
It was a giant pink gem! I honestly don't think I have ever gotten a present that I love more than that one. What a sweet boy to plan so carefully for his mommy. I am always going to keep and treasure that jewel.
Isaac had also drawn Finley's name in our family drawing, and he searched to find his present to her and then wanted to watch her open that too.
Sareny and Finley both got dresses from Grandma Nancy, and Sareny was excited that hers was red. Actually, Keeley got a gorgeous dress from Grandma Nancy too, only I don't have a picture of it.

Finley got these adorable boots from mommy and daddy.
And then we were down to the last present. Isaac was acting a little bit naughty, and not too excited to open his last gift.
Until he opened it up and saw that it was exactly what he was hoping for--an ipod touch!
Then he was a pretty happy boy.
After letting the dust fly from all the new gifts, the kids immediatly started trying out the new stuff. Isaac and Sareny both got these dinosaur excavation kits that came complete with goggles, and they all looked so cute!

The kids had fun trying to get the bones out.
The rest of the day was spent cleaning up from the melee of Christmas morning, playing with new stuff, and Keith and I worked on a puzzle. I had forgotten that we like to do puzzles together! It was a really nice, relaxing Christmas day.
Unfortunately, when I tucked Sareny in bed that evening she told me her throat hurt, and she ended up having strep throat. Isaac was just getting over pink eye, which Finley ended up with on Christmas as well. I couldn't believe we had two of the most contagious illnesses in our house on Christmas day! If you say either of those ailments, people will run the other way. We had planned on going up to Grammy Jo's house on the 26th, but had to delay til the 27th so everybody could get on medication.
