I was thrilled to find this HUGE bow at Claire's. No idea how we will top this one!
First stop: Adrian's grandparents house. After saying hello to his grandparents, everyone disappeared and when I went looking for them, I found this in the living room:
The joys of technology, there was no running around, no "I'm bored", it was wonderful!
Grandma with the grandkids. There are still 4 grandkids missing in this pic!
Stop # 2 was JC's mom's house. She made dinner for us, the kids opened presents and then we sat around talking for a bit!
Stop # 3 was JC's friend's house. We stopped by to wish them a Merry Christmas and drop off a present for their adorable baby! Then we went home, got into our Christmas pj's and went straight to bed!!
Then Santa came!!
One of our Christmas traditions is that the kids pick out a wrapping paper at the store and we "send" it to Santa to wrap their gifts in. It's way easier for me to know which gift belongs to which child!
Kids gifts included their own chairs that my Mom got them. They are super comfortable!
Santa brought Big Hero 6 toys, lots of Lego's
a Nabi DreamTab (seriously Nabi's are the best kids tablets!)
and lots of WiiU games, including Sonic: Rise of Lyric
Santa even brought an Andrew Luck jersey for the non-Dolphins fan in our house. Do you think he was excited?
JC got a new Xbox One controller, Nerf football, clothes and Call of Duty Advanced Warfare (we are obviously a gaming family!)
Santa remembered that I love cardigans and wanted a big crockpot badly!!
After all the present-opening craziness, the kids grabbed their Nintendo 3ds and got to playing their new games:
I was able to drag them away from their devices to get a family pic by the tree in our Christmas pj's (and a tutu, of course)!!!
After this my sisters, dad, niece and nephew came over for lunch and Amberly and Gian went home to celebrate Christmas with their mom! All in all it was an AMAZING day and one I will definitely remember. I'm hoping all the magic continues next year!!
