Ash and Briggs decided to fall asleep in the same bed on Christmas Eve.

Christmas morning on the stairs with Grandma and Grandpa
Ash got a letter from Santa in the mail. Briggs did not. This is the explanation of that mishap. To make it up to Briggs, he left one of the buttons from his coat. Briggs was upset about the absence of a letter on Christmas eve, but I'm pretty sure he could have cared less on Christmas morning.

Ty, showing off one of the toys he got, wearing the Tigger costume just because.

Ash found a quiet place to enjoy the magic of her bead kit. Thanks, Aunt Pam. It was a huge hit.

Ty loved his b-ball hoop from Nana and Papa. He plays with it until his cheeks are red!

After some of the mess has been cleaned up. Ash in her new dress, just because.

Happiness is: new hat, new pj's, new video game.

We took a walk with the Grandparents and the kids found a great wall to climb.

Exhausted with Grandpa...

Exhausted with Papa...The tree and all it's magic.

Grandma telling stories to Ty. She's a great story teller.

Santa is sooo cool in your house! Love the pictures. Again, so sorry I forgot to send the kids gifts with Mae - they'll get there eventually! Then, they'll have Chrsitmas all over again.

I love Dad's morning face in the first picture. And the letter to Briggs is so cute. I'm sure he'll keep that button for a very long time.
