christmas day 2011

Christmas morning came and Avery was up and ready to go.  Nolan was another story. Too many late nights had tuckered him right out.  We had to wake him up.  I wish I had a picture of his face when we said "Nolan! Wake Up! Santa came!" He was puzzled for a split second, then leapt from the bed and ran into the living room so fast I didnt have a chance to get the camera!  He and Avery both had looks of wonder on their faces.  Nolan checked out the trampoline first, then noticed the plate of cookies and carrots.  He really inspected it! They liked their gifts-I think Nolan's favorite was the M&M's in his stocking!  Glad we didnt buy too many toys!

After we opened presents here we went to gramma's like we always do.  There were more presents there, mimosas, gin fizzes and breakfast.  The kids loved opening more gifts and especially the huge blow up slide gramma and poppa gave them!  They had a blast on it-until some dog poo got in the mix and then it was time to go!

We then went to Red's aunt and uncles for dinner in Danville.  So much fun.  It is my 11th Christmas out here in California and am so lucky to have all these wonderful people to spend it with.  I unfortunately didnt get any photos.  But I assure you we had a blast.  And a delicious meal.

We had to head home and get to bed because we were planning to wake up early the next morning to drive up north to visit with Red's brother's girlfriends parents who have a cabin on a lake!  That will be my next post!
