Christmas 2016

Santa came for the sixth year in a row!!! Lots of presents and cookies gone! James woke up at 6:45 AM and instead of following the plan to come get me, Kevin and Miranda, he ran back and forth to the tree like a little crazy person. He was initially overwhelmed because he bought presents for Miranda, Kevin, and me at his school holiday fair and he wanted to put them under the tree before we got up. Haha. His running steps alerted us that he was up and we- GASP- woke up Miranda. Bob and Nana emerged to join us too.

Miranda and Kevin are still waking up; James trying to give his present to Miranda.
This year, Miranda is 2.5 years old and James is 5.5 years old

Finally we got James opening his stuff, and Miranda cautiously opened one thing and announced she didn't want to open anything else. She tried to give away her presents to the rest of us. No, neither of my kids ever act like this, they were just overwhelmed by the excitement. It was funny and weird.

The only thing James asked Santa for this year: a jack-in-the-box.
