|Harper immediately began "mothering" her baby...and other objects :)|
After breakfast, we opened gifts from each other.
|he was underwhelmed by his first gift of a personalized apron. Ha! We held off on his Star Wars gifts until the end :)|
|lots of books for our little book worm|
|she was excited as soon as she saw the box. Cinderella and Elsa dresses!|
|now we're talking!|
|His sister picked this out for him and was SO set on it. She kept saying she just knew that he would love it.|
|and she was right! He even gave her a big hug :)|
|she also knew exactly what she wanted to get her dad. Thankfully we found one in a store fairly easily.|
|elf pajamas...more on that later ;)|
|Harrison picked out a cast iron skillet for his dad so we can make homemade pizookie|
|The kids gave me the 3 Wise Men set to add to my nativity. Love it!|
Then we just hung out and played with our new toys.
And then Rick walked out in his new pajamas and we laughed for 2 days straight. HA! We always exchange pajamas but I let the kids pick them out this year. It was totally a gag gift, obviously. The funny thing is though, I think he would have kept them if they weren't too small. I love this man's awesome sense of humor and how much he keeps us laughing.
My mom cooked a roast for lunch and we headed back over there to hang out with family a little more before they had to get back on the road.

|his grandma gave him a whipped cream beard but he couldn't wait on me to take a picture|
After lunch, we came back home and hung out and played. I didn't really plan ahead to make anything for dinner since we usually eat a later lunch on Christmas, so we improvised with fruity pebbles and oreos. The kids called this a Christmas Miracle.
|Candy with a side of candy for dinner?? Mom, is this really you??|
