The kids woke up at about 8:00 on Christmas morning which was kind of a pleasant surprise! Usually they wake up around 7:30. :) When they ran out into the living room, this is what they found! Santa had filled their stockings and left each of them one big gift! Emma got an American Girl doll, and Foster get a red Radio Flyer scooter just like Emma’s pink one!
Here is the letter that Santa left for them… they were also happy to see that Santa ate their cookies and drank the milk!
Emma’s silly face as she took gifts out of her stocking…
Meet “Kit,” Emma’s new American Girl doll… we think Emma and Kit look a lot alike! Emma also got an American Girl hairbrush, a hospital gown for her, and a pajama set! Then at Nana’s house she got an adorable sweater and leggings outfit for Kit from Aunt Judy. :)
Here is Foster standing on his new scooter and checking out his new Camelback water bottle!
And here is baby Cash on his first Christmas morning!
The biggest surprise of the morning came when Pops and Gigi ran out into the living room and surprised the kids! Due to the predicted snow and ice that was going to happen in Oklahoma on Christmas day, Pops and Gigi decided to drive all night to get to Tulsa before the roads got bad. Emma and Foster were SO excited to see them! It was special that Pops and Gigi got to see our kids open their gifts on Christmas morning.

Emma and Foster got each other gifts too… Daddy took each of them to the store separately on Christmas Eve to pick out gifts. Ironically, they both got each other craft-related gifts! They really “know each other” and love each other!
After we opened gifts and let them play with them for a little while, we all got dressed and headed over to Nana’s house to celebrate with the Foster side of our family. Here is Emma right after we arrived to Nana’s house.

Stocking time! These are the original stockings that my Great-Aunt Auntie made for our family many years ago. We need to put our kids’ names on them more permanently. :)

Judy and Ron gazing at Cash… Judy and Ron are my Dad’s brother and sister. I SO wish that my Dad could have known my kids, but I am also SO thankful that Judy and Ron are such a big part of my kids’ lives- I really don’t know what we’d do without them!
This was Uncle Ron’s first time to hold Cash!
