Christmas Morning. 4:45 am. Little feet came running into our room, "Mommy Daddy there's presents!! Santa brought presents!" We got up for Santa, Round 1:
At 5:20 am, we convinced Caleb that since the rules are he isn't supposed to get up until it's light outside, and it was still dark, we should go back to bed and wait for the sun to come up, and Carly too. It worked! We put him back in his room, and at 7:20 we all got up again for Santa, Round 2:

showing her the stocking
Girly Girly Girly!
Caleb's train whistle was a hit!
After Santa was thoroughly explored, we loaded up and headed to Aledo to have lunch with my mom's side of the family. Aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents were there, and much fun and food was had!

The day after Christmas we went to my dad's for the final celebration, with more food, and more fun.
