A Holly, Jolly Christmas

Anxiously waiting to go see what Santa brought

A wagon for Mia

pirate paraphernalia and scooter for Griffin

Just what she asked for . . . COOKIES and books for Morgan!

American Girl doll (Ivy) and bed for Hadley

Ipod Touch for Ryan

Ipod Touch for Jack

Family picture collage for Gavin's office, cologne and suit

Gavin made us gourmet french toast with homemade syrup for breakfast. YUM!

We went to grandma's and grandpa's for brunch and more gift opening. Grandpa did a really good job shopping this year. The kids all really loved what he picked out! I am loving our new apple tv. Thank you mom and dad!

As usual, I was spoiled by Gavin with clothes, perfume, jewelry, spa gift certificates, and a cute red purse. I am actually a little sad to have our advent activities over with. I really enjoyed it this year and it didn't seem too busy. I jokingly asked the kids what was in the calendar for today, Hadley sadly let me know that it only went to 24. I may just make an advent that starts the countdown on January 1st. Actually, no need -- it already comes quick enough as it is.

Looks fabulous :)
{your stockings look perfect too - I specifically bought smaller ones thinking they would be easier to fill, but they are so narrow hardly anything fits in!}
