Christmas Eve Scrapbook Pages

Our Christmas Eve was absolutely lovely :). All the kids gathered at the house with us around 2:00 to open gifts and THIS year I had all the presents wrapped BEFORE everyone arrived so no one had to wait on me to finish.......what a change from previous years. We all got together in the living room and Rachel was elected as "Santa" to hand out the gifts. She did a pretty good job-not too fast or slow. Even as excited as the kids were, they were all very well-behaved and waited patiently as the gifts were handed out.

Haley was fairly well-rested and content to let me hold her for most of time. She liked tearing the paper off the presents and was fascinated with some of the toys she received. She really liked the little talking puppy I gave her as I hoped she would.

Everyone seemed to like the presents they got although Rebecca was hesitant to show all of us the one package of underwear she received-not sure why she wouldn't want all of us to see Malachi liked the toys better than the clothes, too.

It was so nice to have everyone here at one time. Philip and his little girl, Daisy, even stopped by for a visit. This is one of the things I love most about Christmas!
