So after the boys sent their letters to Santa, we sent one too--via Walmart.com.
Christmas morning, the boys alternated waking up super early and being sent back to bed--about a million times each. At some point, Gabe went down stairs, saw everything and came back up to report what everyone was getting. Serves us right for not getting up at 5 a.m.!
Regardless of the spoilers from Gabe, Santa really came through and the boys had a great morning!
We figured the boys might not be as initially excited about the kayaks as us and we were right. But it was okay. They got excited for those later.
The boys love this awesome pirate ship/cupboard/shelf thingy. My neighbor Lisa saw it at Costco and just KNEW the boys needed to have it and so she bought it for them. What an awesome lady!
They love it and play with it daily.
Doug says it's my dream come true because it's basically a boy doll house. (It's true. I love it.)
Other favorite gifts were lego sets, (of course) art supplies, and books.
|Gabe LOVES to color with markers!!!|
|Mini Kayaks: LOVE THEM!!! Small, light, perfect!!!|
|Maxing weight capacity and hoping I don't sink into the icy water. Brrrr!!!|
Over all, it was a really fun and relaxing day!!! Merry Christmas!!!
