Santa Came!!

Blake and I are still kind of working through how we want Christmas morning gift giving to look at our house.  We really like the 4 gift rule (something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read).  We like Jackson and Claire exchanging gifts.  We also have this silly debate about wrapping gifts.  I think everything should be wrapped.  Blake thinks nothing should be wrapped.  It doesn't matter in the scheme of things...but it is a yearly discussion.  So we kind of stuck to the 4 gift rule this year...a few extra presents got in the pile, but I think that is okay. 

Jackson was totally excited this year...So. Much. Fun.  He had asked for a hula hoop, Batman robe, and a Jake and the Neverland Pirate ship for Christmas.  So (for my memory only): 
Something you want:  Jake and the Neverland Pirate Ship
Something you need: a winter coat
Something to wear: Batman robe and slippers
Something to Read:  The Kissing Hand book
 Claire got him a Mr. Freeze Batman toy.  

Claire was really sleepy Christmas morning.  But, has been cooking all kinds of things since Christmas Day.
Something you want: a kitchen
Something you need: a winter coat
Something to wear: an apron for her cooking endeavors
Something to Read:  A book of Nursery Rhymes
Jackson bought Claire a Baby Alive doll.  She LOVES it!

We had such a fun morning.    I am so overwhelmingly thankful for this life I am blessed with.
