christmas eve morning

Santa came early to our house this year! With all of our family gatherings & celebrations adding up, we decided to celebrate Christmas early so that we could take our time & enjoy our time together. We've rushed our gift opening in the past in order to celebrate with the grandparents...but really, we didn't need much of an excuse - Kenton & I have a very hard time waiting! :P

The excited 3-year old! We didn't put any gifts under the tree before hand, so it looked super exciting to Finn when he woke up. (Notice the new stocking on the right - Cedar's was finished just in time!)

We told Finn the night before that Santa was going to come early. He was excited but a little nervous & told Kenton that he didn't want to hear Santa. The idea of Santa coming into our house made him uneasy. :)

Finn got a dinosaur book!

Cedar got a book too.

The typical, excited expression from Kenton. :)

Cedar liked his new toy!

New boots - a little big, but he'll grow into them. :)

A favorite - Bakugan!

It was so pleasant to take our time & enjoy the morning. We ate homemade pumpkin bread while we opened gifts & had lots of time to put toys together & play with them. It was so fun to remember that it wasn't even Christmas yet! We got to do it all again with the grandparents, aunts, uncles & cousins the next day! :)
