Christmas 2011

We had a great Christmas at home this year! On Christmas Eve we watched some Christmas movies, made cookies for Santa, and went and looked at Christmas lights! Aidan was really excited about Santa coming. It was so cute to see him put out milk and cookies and open up the fire place. He was very concerned that Santa wouldn't fit. LOL.... We let them each open up one present on Christmas Eve which made him even more excited to open presents the next day. After we put the kiddos down, our friends Clint and Jennifer came over to watch a movie with us while Cliff and I wrapped presents. Aidan was up to 10:00 because he was so excited. He stayed in his bed and was quiet but when we went to check on him we found out that he was waiting up because he wanted to see Santa and was still scared that Santa wouldn't fit. It was pretty cute!

Cliff and I woke up early Christmas day and got lunch ready and got ready for church. When the kids got up we unwrapped presents. Aidan was very excited about his gifts and Ryla was not so excited about the gifts but LOVED the wrapping paper. We then ate our donuts and headed to church service. It was nice to see friends and to celebrate with people we love.

We spent the rest of the afternoon lounging, watching TV, and enjoying our family time. Altogether it was a very relaxing and fun filled weekend!
