Merry Christmas!

It just may be the BEST CHRISTMAS EVER! First thing this morning, the kids opened their stockings and a few other presents from some church friends. Then we ate French Toast and pancakes and got ready for church. Sacrament meeting was delightful with beautiful music/singing and testimonies of Christ. I wish we could attend Sacrament Meeting every Christmas. The kids did well waiting until we got home from church to open their presents. They were super excited when the unwrapping began!

Zoe & Emily received Kindles.
My parents & Grandmother now have 2012 calendars with pictures of our family. :-)
Pillow Pets for all of the kids!
Games! Noah loves to play Don't Break The Ice. He was happy to receive a new one since he wore out the old one.
Money! Zoe & Emily unwrapped several boxes within boxes before they found their money. Fun idea Grammie! Matt regrets giving me money since I am seriously thinking about spending it on a weekend trip to Orlando in March for Time Out For Women!
Christmas wouldn't be the same without Grammie hugs!
I'm not sure where we are going to put this CARS track, but it is fun to play with!
Some toys needed to be charged before they could be played with. Remote control cars are so much fun!
Zach made this hand print for me. I consider it Matt's too, but only my name was on the card. :-)
Fijit Friends! The highlight toy for the younger kids!

Some other highlight presents...
Emily ~ Camera
Zoe ~ Pottery Barn Teen Gift Card
Eleanor ~ MP3 Player
Sleds for all of the kids

The Magical Christmas Dust that Zach, Kate, and Eleanor spread all over the lawn last night for the reindeer really was magical! It has been a wonderful Christmas!
