Christmas Day 2010

Christmas morning started early than last year but not too bad! Katelyn had set her alarm for 6 am but was swiftly put back to bed until 7:30. I am pretty sure Taylor and William had a peak when the house was all quiet, hoping that Santa had stopped by during the night to leave them some gifts. They weren't disappointed! They were all spoiled with treasures galore!

Matthew was not really into getting up early as everyone else so we opened a few presents before he joined the rest of us! Joshua got a little frustrated that he wouldn't open his presents but they all waited and watched when he finally did rouse!

Everyone was delighted by their gifts and us parents loved watching their reactions! Our grandparents sent us money for Christmas which we used to buy the kids a wii. It was hidden behind all the other presents so it wouldn't overshadow all the other fun things.

We headed over to my parents' house to join in the festivities there. We were all spoiled rotten as usual. The kids had drawn names with their cousins who live here in Saint George and enjoyed watching them open their presents.

After visiting for a little bit we went over to Grandpa and Grandma Belt's home to give them presents and have some lunch. The kids were a bit restless as they had toys and games waiting for them at home!

All in all it was a wonderful Christmas with lots of fun times had by all. Everyone was showered with gifts and the Christmas spirit. I am thankful that "God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son."
