Christmas Morning!

Santa Came!!!!
Our kids were so excited for Christmas morning I hear the boys awake at 4am!!! I told them to go back to bed but they never went back to sleep. I finally got up at 6 am and made breakfast. At out house we eat breakfast before there are any presents opened. We have a traditional breakfast that we have every year so it is special. We have scrambled eggs, sausage, and home made baked in the oven Cinnamon toast, OJ, and milk! Then on to presents. All the kids got just what they wanted from Santa and were very excited about it all!
Usually I take my kids to the dollar store and let them pick out some thing small for each other. Which I still did with Amelia. But they boys wanted to make presents for everyone this year. I was a little skeptical as to what they would "make" for each other but I was blown away at their ideas and how much each of them LOVED their home made gifts!
Ethan made these tin can stilts for Brock (Brock had actually been wanting me to save cans so he could make a pair!) he made paper dolls with my Cricut for Amelia, and a little chunky board book of things for Hayden using my Cricut! Brock fixed one of Amelia's old purses by putting a new handle on it and decorating it all fancy with sparkles and her name on it (she loves it!) he made Ethan a bed for his stuffed animals, and Hayden got a blanket for her dollies!

The stilts made by Ethan!
Santa brought Hayden the stroller and baby! We got her this pony She loves them both!!!
Ethan got the skate board he had been wanting from Santa!

Amelia got the Ponyville amusement park she wanted from Santa and a Polly pocket from us! She was in heaven! Still is!

Looks like you guys had so much fun! Eli got a skateboard to but has yet to try it out. Too much snow on the ground. Glad you guys had a good Christmas!
