Christmas was great this year. With Brody, Baxlyn, Kylee & Korbin being almost 3 years old (WOW!) they are starting to grasp the whole idea of the season. They knew it was Jesus’ birthday and because of that we were having a big party, birthday cake and all!
We spent Christmas Eve with Bret’s family, starting at Mamaw’s house. This year unlike the two years past, the quads knew how to open presents themselves and waited for nobody. Between trying to read name tags on gifts, looking at what they were opening and encouraging them to take a moment to breathe, I found myself lagging behind in the picture taking department! Below is Kylee with the FIRST gift she opened. Inside her new backpack was a bag of chocolate goldfish that she had never had before. She sat on the fire place and didn’t open another present the entire time. She held that bag, scarfed those fish down as fast as she could and snapped at anyone who came near. DO NOT mess with Kylee and food.
While Kylee was in her own world the other three proceeded to open their gifts (including Kylee’s). Here’s a picture of Brody with another brand new Mickey, spoiled lil’ boy!
Our smiley Kylee once again, standing by Santa Claus at Papaw’s that evening…
Papaw helping Korbin open a gift. Korbin INSISTED on wearing a bow that evening. This little one managed to stay stuck to his head for hours that night! Brody & Uncle BradleySweet Sisters :)The boys making sure Santa’s cookies and milk were in just the right spot before heading off to bed on Christmas Eve!Christmas morning Kylee was the one most concerned about the cookies being gone. Here we are a week past Christmas and she’s still talking about how Santa ate the cookies and drank the milk! Santa brought the girls a kitchen and the boys a tool set. Both were set up and ready to play with Christmas morning. Like Christmas Eve, the babies wanted NOTHING to do with opening more gifts!I took several group pics of them that morning and this, unfortunately, is the best one I ended up with. We have Brody smiling (not sure what at… but smiling), Baxlyn chewing her finger, Kylee upset about something and Korbin….apparently checking out Barbie’s hind end. Nice. No joke peeps, this is the best one.Kylee & Mommy Below we have Baxlyn opening (what we didn’t realize at the time) THE gift of 2011. You may remember the vacuum from last year? Yeah, this Baby Alive was the toy to have this year. Thank GOODNESS my mom and sister had another one at their house waiting later that day. You can see by the look on their faces that one was just not going to cut it! Just a few short hours later Kylee is happy as can be when they receive the other Baby Alive! Kylee & Papa looking at the picture in his new frame!Korbin sharing sugars with Nana! The piano from Uncle Brian was also a big hit. Below Brody & Baxlyn making some music!
We hope you all had a great Christmas as well! Coming your way Twins for a Day, A trip to the Fire Station & The ZOO! Stay Tuned!
