Christmas 2015...

Our Christmas tradition begins with the kids camping out in our room on Christmas eve. There is no early morning rising, 8 or 9 is the usual time, but this Christmas it was early at around 7:30. James and I are the first to leave our room and we have our cameras ready....we have to get our stair picture. After torturing the kids for the right picture for about 5 minutes, we all head to the kitchen. 

Asher's First Christmas morning...we actually had to wake him up :)

His Santa present...
  Everyone has their stocking and an unwrapped Santa present waiting for them.  I start breakfast while everyone digs in their stockings. This year we had Panettone french toast casserole, scrambled egg, bacon, sausage, ham, and hash.
This isn't the best family pic, but it is priceless, especially with Samantha's hair flip...

By the time breakfast made it to the table, Asher was out for his morning nap...
 After breakfast, we clean up the kitchen and put away the leftovers.  It's then time to open up the gifts. We go around one at a time from youngest to oldest.  I totally forgot to take a picture of all of us in front of the tree, I also forgot to get one of the set was a forgetful picture year for me :(

Asher was awake for the presents and we were suprised that he actually reached for his and started ripping the paper!

Mason loved his archer outfit and bow and arrow...this was the main thing that he wanted.

At around 2pm, we skyped Cameron and Kellsea in was 80 degrees there and they said it didn't feel like Christmas. Well, it was 61 degrees here and it really didn't feel like Christmas time either.

I wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!  With love from my family to yours,
