Christmas Morning

The layout of the new house and our Christmas Day schedule made it necessary for the adults to wake up before the kids on Christmas morning.  Damon felt that this meant we needed to wake up really early.  Knowing that our kids would not be up for a while, I was against this plan, but being the model submissive wife that I am, (you can stop laughing now and keep reading) I got up at the crack of dawn...
Eventually we were able to rouse Cille, who is always our first to rise.  She totally ignored the tree and gifts and headed straight for Mawmaw's lap...
Next Stella arrived, also indifferent to mount giftmore, and she snuggled up with Pawpaw...
Then Mawmaw...
Eventually it looked like we were going to have to force them to open gifts...
Cille was kind enough to humor me and take a spin around the living room on her new bike...
She also tried to talk Stella into a bike ride...
Watts was excited about his first Christmas!

Tripp is just like his mom and dad...he likes to sleep late and join the party on his own terms...
Weight limit?
That's more like it...
Today the living room, one day Le Tour de France...
Pawpaw assisted Watts with his gift opening and was patient enough to actually get Watts to do some of the actual opening, showcasing Watts's gifted abilities...
"You talkin' to me?"
At least one of the kids liked the bikes...

We told Cille it would work better with shoes...

Uncle Zak's favorite place: the airport...

Cille immediately threw away each piece of wrapping paper she removed.  This made opening gifts take. a. l-o-n-g. time...
Watts got a dog chew toy...just kidding! A Sophie the Giraffe...
Cille is now a certified locksmith...

Looking at Daddy...
The cutest present under the tree...
Shoes from Uncle Zak!

Cille just knew these would help her ride her bike...






Watts did NOT approve of the photo of him I chose for the front of Pawpaw's book...
Tripp's favorite toy from Christmas morning...
