Christmas Day!

We had a wonderful Christmas Day!

We let Emma sleep in our room on the floor because she was scared that she might run into Santa if she had to leave her room during the night. :)

She woke up pretty early but we held her off until 8:00 am.  Robin, Emma, and I headed to the living room and opened a few gifts before going to get Foster.  (Emma had a lot more gifts to open than Foster so we figured this would be ok!)  We decided to give one of the kids their big Santa gifts in Arlington when we went to Pops and Gigi’s house because we weren’t sure it would make it to our house by Christmas….more to come on that later!  Santa left Emma a note that he couldn’t fit her “big gift” on his sleigh and would deliver it to Pops and Gigi’s house.

Reading the note from Santa.  By the way… did I mention that Robin got really sick 2 days before Christmas?  We think it was a bad virus or cold.  He felt slightly better on Christmas morning Praise the Lord!  We had all been battling colds.

Foster’s main gift was a bucket for his matchbox cars… and about 25 new matchbox cars.  He was SO excited!!! (I stole the bucket idea from our friends, the Kreys.)  I had been looking for a good place to put all these cars and I knew he would love taking them out and putting them back in and carrying them all over the house.  Once he saw the cars, he was pretty much done for the morning. He took ever single car out and told us which ones were new. :)

Emma really wanted to pick out a gift for Foster so Robin and Emma went to Target on Chrismtas Eve.  She picked out a Thomas the Train lego set and a Color Wonder set so he could do his own artwork and it wouldn’t be too messy (smart girl!)

After we took our time opening presents at our house, we got dressed (well the kids stayed in their P.J.’s) but Robin and I got ready and we all drove to Nana’s house.

Of course Foster brought about 7 cars to Nana’s house…

Love this picture… some of my very favorite girls… Emma, Nana, Jill, Judy.  I’m so lucky to have my Mom and Judy- they do so much for us and help so much with our kiddos!  But wow, this picture makes me realize I really need to tackle those ‘extra pounds’ after the Holidays.  Oh well.

Foster was very excited about this school bus that was in his stocking!

Emma was so excited about this clock from Aunt Judy.  She has been wanting it for a while.  Not only does it teach kids to tell time, it also lights up different colors according to when it’s bedtime, when it’s ok to get out of bed, etc!  It also plays music!  It is so cool!  She used it on Christmas night and loved it.

Judy got Foster his very own coloring book and crayons.  He loved them!  Now maybe he won’t draw on Emma’s masterpieces.

Judy also got Foster this awesome CD player.  This boy LOVES music.  He often runs to Emma’s room to play CD’s on her CD player.  Now he has one of his very own!

I love this picture of my Mom and Boom.  She ordered this picture of him finishing the Tulsa Run… a huge milestone for him!

I would like to point out that with the hundreds of new gifts that Foster received on Christmas morning… Foster kept running to Nana’s toy closet and pulling out the OLD (as in 35-40 year old) toys that he always plays with when he goes to her house!  These are oldies but goodies!

Foster loved playing with Ron and Christi!

We all had a fit over this wrapping paper that Christi used… isn’t it adorable?

Foster loved this seek and find book from Nana…

This was hilarious…. Ron and Judy and Christi gave this James train to Foster… it is battery powered and moves on it’s own.  He was really excited about it when he first opened it.  Then when we put it down on the ground and it started moving he ran into my arms frightened and said “James chasing me!”  Then he asked to see Thomas on my phone- like Thomas was his security blanket!  Now, I am happy to report that he carries James everywhere and loves to watch him travel around the house.  It’s like James is Foster’s new little puppy dog!
