Christmas name exchange

Last year Dave and I kept our names out of the Christmas name exchange on my dad's side. Maybe it's the kid in me, but it just wasn't the same. I know Christmas isn't about receiving gifts but there's something about being involved in the giving/receiving tradition. This year we were included in the name exchange and although the gifts we both received are very much appreciated, it is WAY more fun to watch the kids get their gifts.

Tayt wanted to be surprised until the last minute so he opened his Christmas gift with his eyes closed. He's been carrying this Woody doll around non-stop :)


Peyton = Nerf so his gift was dead on. Lia's face here says it all. She loves those Squinkies. Now if we can just keep Nash from chewing on them! Austyn IS a princess so this gift couldn't have been more perfect for her. And there is a classic shot of Tayt... not looking at the camera.

Nash loved his Batman car. Another reason to scream and fight with Tayt...the dirty "S" word... *whisper* sharrreee ;)

This is the craziness of the exchanging.

Wishing for a girl ;)

A big Thank You to my aunt for hosting again this year. We love getting together with everyone. No lie... Christmas Eve with my dad's family is something I look most forward to every year :)
