Christmas Day 2015

The kids was part of the Christmas pageant at church so we had to leave the family gathering early.  Christmas pageant is an annual play of the  St. Joseph's students depicting the life of Jesus.  My son's part was  the  chief  shepherd.  The pageant is heald before the 6 o-clock mass.  It was a really good presentation.
 We took some photos  at home after church.  When my husband holds the camera, the photos comes in many different faces lol.
 The kids went to bed around 9 o'clock.  MY son reminded us to go to bed early so Santa wouldn't  pass our home.  Hubby and I  spent almost three hours, assembling the   gift that Santa have for the kiddos.
 We thought we will be able to sleep in on Christmas day but the kids were very excited to open gifts so they  woke us up at 6 am wahhh. I was so tired and sleepy.  When we went to the living room, all the gifts were taken out and piled up according to who it was for lol.

  It was funny, my son was  bummed out that they couldn't  find any gifts from Santa underneath the tree or anywhere in the  main house.  Santa actually left all his gifts  at the basement so I asked them to let the dogs out and they finally saw their  gifts when they  went down there.
 EJ got the  "professional" art kit that he wished  for.
 Daughter couldn't wait to see the  bean bag chair that she's been wanting for Christmas.
Her brother loved her  bean bag chair so he said he wants one for his birthday which is coming up  in three weeks.  Time flies, EJ is turning 9 years old.  Oh boy, where do the time go?
Hubby thought we didn't have  anythingwrapped for him but we were  sneaky about it.  The kids  got him somethingand I got him somethingas well.  Of all the people, we couldn't  forget  the man of the house.
 Ryestein got an artkit  from Santa as well.
 She also got her bother this nike set that we found  on sale when  she and I went shopping while the boys  watched the Star Wars movie.
 Theylove the  iPOd cases that we got for them.
Funny to hear them say "this is the best Christmas ever" every year!
 They got an air hockey from Santa.  Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus  had  a hard time putting this together lol.
 It is a great joy seeing them enjoy what Santa bring though.
 Even their Dad is having a great time playing with them.
 I hope you all have a great and merriest Christmas just like we did.  Iwish you all a  joyous new year! Shadow Shots

  4. Nice gifts that are not always toys (except for the air hockey :) Practical and learning gifts are what parents want to bring to their kids when the are older. Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family!

  8. What lovely family pictures! My husband and I weren't on our game this year (since everyone was sick) so we have limited photos. We recorded the kids opening presents...but the camera batteries died after 5 minutes and we didn't realize it until after the fact!

  14. Ha! Sleeping in on Christmas? What were you thinking? LOL I remember when my kids were little. They'd rush into our room the minute they woke up, but I would make them wait until I had showered, put on my makeup and did my hair. You would have thought I was killing them! It looks like your family had an awesome Christmas ... Happy New Year!

  19. The kids had a great Christmas! My kids slept in until about 10 or so! We always drive around and see the lights late at night, so they usually stay asleep until 930 or 10AM! It gives us a while to catch up on sleep because we have to help put santa's gifts together and those take forever!
