Christmas 2011

Christmas 2011. Home in San Diego.

Christmas Eve we went through all our traditions - opening new Christmas PJs [We even found Blue Shark jammies -a shout out to his soccer team] putting out cookies for Santa & carrots for the reindeer, [Funny that Keller had already set out the carrots at 7AM Christmas Eve morning....ultra prepared!], reading the Christmas story & playing with our new nativity set from Grandma & Papa Marchant. He had been petrified on Christmas Eve that Santa would find him awake & was content to be in bed by 8PM. 

Christmas morning. 6:30AM. I awoke with a start & thought it was strange our usual 6AM early riser hadn't busted down our bedroom door announcing to the world, "It's Christmas!". Alas, he was being super patient & informed us he had checked on us 3 times & we were missing Christmas.

Down the stairs we came to see if Santa had come through for us.....and he did!

Football Oreos...too cool!
Keller's favorite toy from Santa - a Hot Wheels Sky Jump track

Keller scored with DVDs, 'Minute to Win It' for Wii [definitely a family competition brewing...], an annual pass to the San Diego Zoo & lots of games [Trouble, Sorry, Yahtzee, Rock 'Em Sock 'Em].

Chad scored some protein. I scored a monopod for my camera & Chad framed one of my favorite pictures I've taken.

And Grandma scored her silly dog in a Santa hat.
