We are adding another great Christmas to the books! 
On Christmas Eve morning we opened the last day on the advent calendar, Santa was coming tonight!
 The boys and I made some fudge for Santa...
 In the afternoon they went over to Grandma and Grandpas for a while to spread the excitement around a bit.  While there they made an awesome gingerbread house and trees. 

 While they were away Santa's elves were busy working on their main Christmas gift...
 We all went back to Rich and Judy's to hang out for a bit and celebrate Stu's Birthday with some pizza and brownies.  
While there Rich broke out a new toy for all the boys, a remote control helicopter. 
 We had fun watching as they figure out how it worked...
 Then it got stuck on the roof...
 It was retrieved just in time for dinner!  

Before we knew it, it was time to head for home to get to bed so Santa could come!
The boys sprinkled the reindeer food on the lawn.
 We made some hot chocolate and picked some fudge pieces for Santa and they were off to bed! 

Santa came...
(really not as sad a take as it looks as the big stuff was outside!)
 The tree was stuffed with presents!
 The boys were up off and on all night.  Cody said the first time he checked the clock to see what time it was it said 2:30ish.  They waited until 6:30 on the dot to come wake us up!  

Tyler opened the blind right away to find the trampoline waiting for them outside.
Then they opened their stockings...
 before the rest of their Santa gifts....

 The took a break to jump on the trampoline.  It was freezing out and they only last a few seconds. 

 They happily dove into the rest of their gifts. 

Cody finally has his own pillow pet, he was thrilled! 
 We enjoyed the yule log and Christmas music the whole morning. 

The boys enjoyed the morning playing with all their new loot!

Around noon we headed over to Rich and Judy's for presents and dinner.  

Hoping everyone had as wonderful a Christmas as we did!
