Max and Claire have been on overload since Christmas eve.  They have been spoiled rotten with Grandparent time and all their wonderful presents.  Christmas morning they woke up around 5:30.  This was one morning I was excited to be up super early.  As a kid, my brother and I would wake up super early (even in our teen years) to see what Santa had brought!
I made sure to leave my camera out so I could capture their first reactions to Santa.  Sadly, I forgot to change the setting so the first picture, which should be the best, is blurry.

Excited is an understatement!  They ran straight for it and stayed on it for a few minutes before noticing other presents!

Grandma and Grandpa got them trikes and Aunt Darcy got them cool helmets to wear.  We are still working on how to ride the trikes!

Justin and I had said we would get each other one gift and not do stockings.  That stinker did a stocking for me and surprised with a second gift to the spa!!  I am beyond excited.  Now I just have to decide what to get done!
After a morning filled with Justin's family we headed over to my parent's house to see my brother and his family.

My mom and dad were so excited to have all grandchildren together (two sets of twins under 2!)

 Their big present from Nanny and Poppy was an art easel!  

We got home late from Mom and Dad's but that didn't stop them from running straight to their new toys!   

 Being silly with their rudolph noses!
Usually I don't want Christmas time to end, but this year, I'm ready to get our decorations up and house clean.  And sometime find a place for all of their new toys!

We are so blessed to have such wonderful families and so thankful to be able to spend the holidays with them.

  1. I can see in the first picture that you caught him in the middle of a run!

    I have to know...what is the toy that looks like a treadmill/monkey bar??

    It looks like a good time was had by all! And 2 sets of twins?? Fun! And a spa gift certificate?? Heavenly!
