Christmas Day!


Well Christmas was really great this year! Yesterday afternoon we got a call from Jared's brother Jeremiah who is serving a mission. Jared had a great time talking to him. We then spent the night eating yummy food and singing christmas carols. I was really suprised how much Landon enjoyed himself. Today I woke up bright and early and gave my brother Matt a call. He is also on his mission. It was so nice talking to him, I really miss him and I can't waite for him to get home in a few months. Landon woke up around 8:30 and got really excited when he saw the ball house that santa had brough him and Tori. they played in there for a few minutes until it was time to open presents. Landon wanted to keep playing but once he saw Tori "opening" presents he wanted to open them too. He loved it! He kept opening presents and saying "Wow look at this" it was really cute. We spent about an hour opening gifts and have been playing ever since. I love spending Christmas with Landon this year, he really made it magical for me again. I hope that all of you also had a great holiday! Merry Christmas!

So how messy does that ball house get? Sounds like you guys had a Christmas pretty much like ours. Except you got the snow I wanted. Oh well, there is always next year. Merry Christmas!

Kristen the ball house actually is not that messy. There aren't really that many balls that go with it ( about 50 but that doesn't even cover the bottom of the play house) and after Landon started throwing the balls out everywhere he quickly learned to leave them in the ball house.

It looks like you had a great Christmas! I loved your present to us by the way! The ball house looks fun. I'm glad you had a good time. (I also like your new layout - super cute, I need to do mine!)

I agree having small children help make Christmas more magical. I loved watching my kids open presents and stockings. Robin
