As you all know, yesterday was Christmas!

Stocking picture
We went to bed pretty late Christmas Eve.  We were over at my grandparent's home for a while to do a nativity and eat dinner.  Then, when we came home we took customary stocking pictures, and then after Kevin went to bed, Havelock, Grig, and I stayed up late to play games and enjoy their night off. 

Then, Christmas morning, we woke up at the early hour of 9:30 a.m. Kevin was a little bit sad when he woke up, but before he started to cry, I said, "Look!  Daddy!"

Kevin saw his dad sleeping in the bed, and he instantly became the happiest boy you've ever seen.  Most mornings, Grig wakes up long before Kevin, so it was very unusual for Grig to still be in the bed when Kevin woke up.  It made Kevin so excited!  We got dressed, took the dog out, changed Kevin's diaper, and then we went out to see what Santa had brought us.

Dakota's presents, including a new bed!
Kevin received some toy dinosaurs, a stuffed cow, and some candy.  He really enjoyed pulling things out of his stocking one at a time.  We'll try to post a video this weekend, but we're going to be out of town, so it may not happen.

After that, we talked to Grig's family over Skype until Havelock woke up.  Then we made breakfast.  We had eggs, pancakes, bacon, and sausage.  Oh, yeah!  And eggnog.  You can't forget the eggnog.

It was delicious.  Then, after breakfast, we opened presents.  We got some fantastic gifts.  Some of the presents I received were House of Hades and Man of Steel!  I also got a new saucepan and some River Monster videos.

Grig received a few books, some dvds (including John Carter!) and a knife sharpener.

Kevin got some of those huge legos, some wood blocks, a puzzle, a nativity set, a pop-up book with sounds, and the complete Walking with Dinosaurs series.  He also got a singing key chain and refrigerator magnets.

We then went to lunch with my grandparents and opened a few more gifts. 

Kevin was so tired.  He didn't take a nap all day until we came home at 4:30.  He went to straight to a late nap.

We had a great day! Kevin loves unwrapping presents. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.

We hope you had a Merry Christmas too!     

Merry Christmas!
