Welcome Christmas... Christmas Day!

We are a couple kids come Christmas Day. We wake up early, get some coffee, put on some music, and then spend the morning opening gifts.
We let Aquaman open his first this year to keep him occupied all morning.
We gave Gracie a nice piece of string, and she was so enthralled that she spent a lot of the morning being part of the family!
We normally start out by checking out our stocking loot. Santa was very good to both of us this year, and our snowmen were fat!
Then we open gifts, one by one, slowly enjoying every moment!
It gets rather messy, and I'm glad we kept Aquaman occupied. And yes, I got Taylor Swift AND Eclipse, and no, I'm not 16, I'm 26... just for the record.
Eric also got me this beautiful tea kettle. I love that you can see the reflection of the tree in the kettle.
I found this fun pop up book for Eric... It has all the DC Superhero's, it's pretty cool.
And I bet you're wondering what kind of present get's that kind of reaction...
The 70th anniversary edition of the Wizard of Oz... :)
Oh and my Owly Hat from last year got that reaction too... maybe I'm excitable!
Aquaman was very thankful for his treats...
And just like every kid... Gracie would have rather played with the packaging.
We had a wonderful Christmas Day. We're very blessed.
We spent our Christmas eve with our wonderful friends Ivan & Dawn... and Christmas Day together - we are so very blessed.
I miss my family today... a lot, but it's fun to be able to talk to them, wish them a Merry Christmas and say "See yah next week!"
This is my favorite person in the world to spend Christmas with... He's the best.
Merry Christmas....
