Christmas 2010

Christmas Day 2010.  Isabelle woke up about 6:45 and tried her best to not beg to go and see what she got but after 10 minutes of waiting, she was done with waiting.  We tried waking Gracie but she said:  "I want to open presents when it's morning time," not realizing it was actually morning even though it was still dark.  Shortly before 7:30 we had Gracie awake and Brooks started on his bottle and we were ready.  Right before the girls walked out Isabelle said:  "Gracie, if we only get one My Salon Doll, I will share it with you."  I thought the gesture was very thoughtful but I not sure if she would have actually followed through!

Grandma and Grandpa Ferran showed up about 8:00 to bring the kids presents and watch them unwrap some of their other gifts.  Isabelle's favorite present was the My Salon Doll and even though Gracie really loves hers, her favorite has to be her new Barbie Car.  Brooks was just happy to eat paper and put whatever he could in his mouth.  After unwrapping most of the gifts (But saving some for later) we hurried and got ready to go to Grandma and Grandpa Barker's house.

We were a little late, but just before 11:00 we showed up and had a really nice Brunch with lots of different options.  The kids had a lot of fun drawing pictures and playing until we decided that they could start opening presents.  After all the gifts were exchanged and we spent some time just relaxing there, at about 3:00 we went to say hi to the Ferran's.  On our way home at 5:00 we dropped some cookies off to DeAnne for her Birthday and then came home.

It was a busy day and because of that Brooks didn't sleep all that well.  He had a decent nap this morning, a very short one this afternoon, and then another short one when we got home.  Luckily he is asleep now and the girls are getting ready for bed by watching T.V. in Mommy and Daddy's room.  It has been a great Christmas, and I think the kids got what they wanted and had a fun day with Grandparent's and Cousins'.  

Today Isabelle has been a very helpful big Sister to Gracie and Brooks when she was needed.  It makes me feel good when she goes out of her way to help Gracie learn how to use a new toy or cleans up the family room without being asked.   It was fun to see the interaction between Gracie and Isabelle today and how they really worked to help each other out which on a daily basis doesn't always happen.  And Brook's, he was just happy to be a spectator in this crazy show we call Christmas Day.

Ready to go after waiting for too long

Brooks was the last one to wake up, you can tell in this picture

All Brook's cared about was eating whatever was placed in front of him

Gracie and Isabelle are both excited Gracie finally has her own robe

Brooks totally uninterested in his toy, just the wrapping paper
