Finally getting around to posting about our Christmas! We had an amazing holiday. The kids have been absolutely giddy with excitement through the entire month of December, and it was wonderful to see the magic through their eyes.
Christmas Eve mass – Seamus was asked by our church to bring the gift up to the priest to present to baby Jesus. I only got this one pic, but the cuteness was almost too much for me. He was so proud, and looked so handsome in his little suit!
Leaving out Santa’s cookies before bed, and pretty much bursting with excitement at this point!
Santa came! Look at how nicely he piled the gifts under the tree! But there was one gift that he couldn’t seem to squeeze in there…
You guessed it! A six-foot-long pirate ship. This thing definitely did not look this big on the box!
Grace was thrilled with all of her new baby doll things…
And Seamus’ excitement is evident as he opens a gift to discover Buzz Lightyear! As soon as he saw him, he shouted, “This is my favorite toy EVER!”
Two extremely happy campers on an awesome Christmas morning.
Then it was off to Nanny and Poppy’s for more of Santa’s surprises…
A drum set!
Princess Presto and Super Why capes!
Baby doll carrier and Spiderman costume!
So many great new toys!
Which of course, then caused Mommy and Daddy to start hyperventilating about where on earth we were going to put everything…but never fear, Ikea to the rescue!
You wouldn’t believe how much stuff these things hold!
I’m in love with them. I’m weeping tears of joy just looking at them. Ikea, we are eternally grateful.
Now, if they could only come up with a storage bin to hold a six-foot-long pirate ship…
