Christmas Day 2016

We had a really nice Christmas this year.  Times are definitely different with the kids being older.  While they may not squeal at the top of their lungs at the site of all the presents under the tree, they are still surprised and thankful for the gifts they receive.

Santa made his visit!  I love how the tree is completely empty until Christmas Eve night.  It's fun to go from bare to overflowing!

I must have missed a spot with the lights because that weird shadow is in every picture of our tree this year!

Both boys came out holding a dog!

I swear Hudson has pj pants on!  He gets hot in the night and it is always a mystery as to what I am going to find him wearing in the morning!

He got an iPod touch!

Evan taking it all in!

I told Huddy to at least put a shirt on for pictures!

Hudson got a Sunnyside Bicycles sweatshirt!  Now he is like the rest of the family!

It was an Apple and Nike Christmas.

The kids failed at passing out the presents correctly, and Eric accidentally opened up one of mine!  He's going to look good in pink workout pants!

He got the slippers he wanted.

And he got Justin Ropers!  He's been saying he wants a pair for a year now, and I was super happy to surprise him with these!

Now he needs Wranglers!

The happy mess.

I am not normally one to clean up in a hurry, but it was easy to fold up all the boxes and stick them in their spot.

Hudson was already going to town on his iPod and Eric is looking at the Apple Watch that he gave me for Christmas!  I love it!

This dog has been so spoiled this vacation.  He is pretty much curled up in Eric's lap every moment of the day.  He's going to have a rude awakening on Tuesday when we all go back to work!

Ropers and pajamas!  It's going to be the next trend.

After enjoying the morning for a few hours, we all got ready to head to Bakersfield to spend the day with Eric's parents.  We had a nice day visiting with them, eating a yummy lunch, and playing on our new toys.

We got home around 7ish and Eric curled up on the floor in front of the fire.

Whereever Eric is, Harry is not far behind.

This dog is loved and spoiled.

Those faces!

Hudson had to get in on the snuggle action!

It was a really nice, low-key, fun loving, and joy filled Christmas.
