We must have been good!

6:25 am and Ty's awake so I headed upstairs to see if Kate was awake too...surprise, she was. At that point, we gathered everyone and started our Christmas morning. Santa brought the family a new trampoline!

Santa made a mess!

Grandma set up a scavenger hunt for the girls to find their big gift. They had a blast with it.

And here is the "big gift"! They've been on eBay all afternoon budgeting their money!

Kate got this castle tent and everyone loved playing in it. It is set up with all Kate's favorite things in her room in anticipation of her first sleepover in it tonight.

It's a John Deere! Ty gets one before Dad or Grandpa!

Once we had our breakfast of cinnamon rolls, spice cake coffee cake and egg casserole, Kate headed out to play in the snow.

Okay, so Lauren has decided she has to have the Justin Bieber cut out from the mall. My dad found out she was willing to pay $35 for it and has decided he wants to be a cut out too! He believes he is worth $36 with $1 being donated to charity! (My sister added that she felt sorry for the charity!)  Once we got this shot of him in Kate's princess tent, we developed further plans of putting him on the cover of romance novels too! He says "it's just what the young ladies want"! Dear heaven, we are a sick bunch!

The best gift was Ty adding the word "pa-pa" to his vocabulary.

And when it was all said and done.....this mess remained! After Mom and Dad headed on to Theresa's house this afternoon, Greg and I packed away all the Christmas decorations and recovered the house. It feels so good to have it restored to "normal"!

packed away the Christmas decorations? as in, tree and all??

Yes, tree and all. I saw that mess and figured I'd rather tackle it once rather than clean up around it all today and then make a mess taking it all down tomorrow or Monday and having to clean again. I almost always do it this's a sickness! Hope you had a Merry Christmas!
