Christmas Day.. Part I

I want to start off by wishing everyone a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year! The Cernin's had a Wonderful Christmas! The kids slowly came out to the living room to see if Santa has arrived. He did!

First we checked to see if the cookies were gone. He had eaten all the cookies, took a bite out of one and left that on the tray, ate the carrots, and drank the milk! He even left Taylor and Colin a note, Thanking them for the cookies and that they have been good kids this year. The look on Taylor's face...priceless. I wish we could have gotten a picture of it. She kept saying the rest of the day, "hey, I've been good!" She was so proud! That was a gift in itself! Too cute!

The kids checked their stockings. Colin got some Tonka cars, 2 books, and an M&M tin. Taylor got a book, M&M tin, LipSmacker lipsticks, and some Play Doh. In each of their stockings, Santa had even written them a note on the wrapping paper that was around the books.

Taylor's new Bike!

Colin opening his gifts

It wasn't alot this year, but Colin for one, would be happy with just about anything...pretty happy go lucky kinda kid. Plus he's still at the age where he isn't sure and it's just another day to him. I felt bad though putting the gifts under the tree the night before. He had 2 gifts and Taylor had 4. (One being the bike). We also figured he'd probably be getting gifts from our families. Taylor on the other hand, was a little more excited this year. All she wanted for Christmas was comfy cozy pants and a bike! Well, she got both of them! She is just the type to get excited over anything (usually not a lot) and loves everything she recieves. At the end of the evening, she turned to Tim and I and said, "I had a good Christmas". Now, what more could you ask for on Christmas? I also asked her "what did you like best? The presents or all of us being a family today?'' Guess what she said, "Being a family"! Need I say more?

Tim's parents are coming down on New Year'e Eve to celebrate. We are looking forward to their visit as well!!
