Christmas Morning

We celebrated Christmas morning just the three of us (five if you count Joe and Katze, who of course also got gifts)

Doing our traditional walk down the hall.
Mason saw all the presents under the tree and was excited. Squeals of “Santa brought me presents!!! There are presents under the tree from Santa!!” filled the air and brought big smiles to our faces.

We got right down to business and Mason started opening presents.
He wasn’t very thrilled when we tried to make him show US his presents so we could take pictures

But if HE could look at them, then all was well

He’s gotten so much better at unwrapping stuff since his birthday in March LOL
The fire truck was the one thing he’d asked Santa for (other than a candy cane….) so he was pretty excited to get it.

Presents from his friend Emma and her mom. We had to stop everything and read this book.

Excited about Thomas pajamas from Auntie Joy (I think Joe was jealous)

He was all about the stockings and wanted to open them all

Simple stocking – a light up toy and a candy cane.

This was his most amusing gift – we now have 23094923 blurry pictures of every present he got, taken from approximately 1.4 inches away. And lots of butt pictures too. LOL

Mason was SUPER excited about all of his presents and demanded “Open this, Mommy!” after every one and instantly wanted to play with each and every thing. We got smart this year and instead of doing our usually round robin (you open one, then I open one, then Daddy opens one) we let him open all of his and then let him play with his new toys while SuperDad and I and Joe and Katze opened ours. Other than Joe wondering why he had to wait so long for his presents, this made things go SO much smoother and we got through the morning with no tantrums. Yay!

Christmas morning was special. There were no tears and nothing but smiles and laughter all morning. You know Mason liked his presents when for the first time ever he didn’t want to go to Grandma’s. He wanted to stay home and play with his toys. I’d call that a success!
