Even though it got off to a rough start with Rylie's ER visit on Christmas Eve, we still had a pretty good Christmas. I really should be packing for our vacation right now, but I wanted to get these pictures up before I left. Who really wants to see Christmas posts a week from now?
OK, so, here we go...
Here are the kids checking out what Santa left. Rylie was soooo excited to check everything out, and kept telling Bryce to look at everything.
She pretty much "helped" him open all of his presents, and at first was more concerned with helping him than opening her own.
They were both so good about putting all of the ripped up paper in the garbage bag. In fact, neither one of them seemed to want any of it on the floor.
Rylie took the present opening very seriously.
And just as I thought, Bryce LOVED his Tickle Me Elmo. He kept going back to it and would just squat down and giggle at it.
Bryce took the cleaning up a little too far. He started trying to throw away his sister's presents.
Once Rylie opened the markers and the pad of paper that went with the easel, Christmas morning was pretty much over. All she wanted to do was color and had no desire to open the rest of her presents. She still just wants to color all day long. She loves that easel!
After coloring for a while, we got ready for Brian's mom, step-dad and aunt to get here. We had a nice dinner and enjoyed the afternoon. After dinner, Brian's mom opened up the tent she got for them (yes, now we have two, since we got one for Rylie) and the kids had fun playing in it. Rylie climbed in and said she was going to take a nap.
But Bryce had other plans...
Sorry Rylie, find another place to nap.
Every Christmas my mom and I get matching PJs. Well this year I happened to find PJs that matched some that Rylie already had. We usually take these pictures on Christmas Eve, but well, that photo session had to be postponed until Christmas night. So here we are in our 2010 matching PJs...
I didn't get many pictures of Christmas this year. There was just way too much going on. Brian did get some video, and hopefully one day I can get some of that posted. In my spare time, you know. :-)
Rylie finally opened the rest of her presents yesterday. She has had to take Benadryl for the last three days, so her energy level sure isn't what it normally is. My house looks like a bomb went off in it, but we sure did have fun.
I hope you all had a great Christmas, and I can't wait to get around and see all of your posts and pictures!
