Christmas Day 2014

Christmas Day - finally! Also called American Christmas in our house. Santa made it to our house:



Jelly Bean got up at her usual time. So she and I went downstairs and enjoyed some play time together while the boys slept.



 

PJ slept in his suit until almost 9am! Partying makes you pay at some point. ;)


But he finally got up and remembered Santa Claus was suppose to come. It took a lot of persuasion to get him out of his suit and into his sleeping clothes.
 


But we finally did it. And then we had to wait for papa to get into his sleeping clothes as well. So we made Christmas faces.

This is the Grinch.

This is Santa Claus.
Finally we were all ready and PJ and Jelly Bean were allowed to charge the tree.




We took it really slow opening the gifts. We took play breaks and even stopped to eat breakfast. The kids didn't mind, in fact, they seemed a little overwhelmed by the newness and excitement a few times. I can't pick which pictures to post, so here are too many.



We started with the gifts from Granny and Grandpe. Both kids loved their new kindergarten bags.



 
Then we opened the gifts from mommy and daddy. I made the kids superhero caps. They were a hit.

 
We took a play break and opened the parent gifts. Building up on my birthday gift, the Mr. got me a lovely pendant with all of our names and birthstones. I was really touched. 



And I gifted him a piece of writing.



 The kids were still happy with the gifts they had opened, so we ate some yummy breakfast.
 

After breakfast, we opened the gifts from Santa Claus. We had just managed to meet Santa the Friday before Christmas. Thank goodness we did! PJ had been telling us for weeks he wanted a SpiderMan but when we met Santa, he clarified: he wanted a SpiderMan costume.

Santa, that professional, really pulled through.

 

I'm pretty sure Santa has connections with AmazonPrime.

Our music lover, Jelly Bean, got a walkable piano. This thing is pretty fantastic.





I may have been caught a few times playing on it myself.

Afterwards, I'm pretty sure we all took a nap and then enjoyed an excellent goose dinner lovingly and excellently prepared by the Mr.
 
Slowly a joyful, kid-filled Christmas came to an end. I'm realizing how much more fun and inspiring Christmas is with the wonder of a child. And ribbons, of course.
