christmas morning

our two oldest have the gift of rising between the hours of 4 and 5 am and not just on christmas!  this gave us plenty of time as a family to play and get ready for our very full and exhausting fun day.  isaac and ryder were excited that is was jesus' birthday and wanted to get to the party(breakfast at my parents).  i love that at this age a birthday means a party(isaac refers to any gathering of friends or family as a party.) and who doesn't love a good party?!  
more rocket shooting

baby brother always wants to be included.  he will seriously sob until he joins the group.  

what more could a girl ask for?!  love these guys and their rocket shooting abilities!
ryder immediately throws theses flip flops on whenever we get to my parents.  they aren't even his size, but he calls them his and wears them with great pride.  

new shoes for our little walker.

stew and i made allison a jewelry hanger.  ok, i picked out the hardware and stew did the real work.  

thank you for the presents auntie!  oh the hours of fun we've already had as we've been in the house for ONE WEEK WITH THE FLU(more to come on that)! 
who knew this little love had the stomach bug all day.  he was exceptionally fussy and i just assumed he was getting more teeth.  christmas night i went to feed baby asher one last time before going to bed.  poor little guy was in a crib of vomit.  he wasn't well for at least 4 days.  as i type this, we are still in the trenches of it with ryder.  let's hope it ends soon!  and let's hope isaac doesn't get it!  yuck.

the boys made these for our families for christmas this year.  
this was a perfect picture of the morning with asher!  looking back(and having just gone through the pain) i feel horrible that we were dragging him all over that day. 
ryder and isaac wanted to make christmas gifts for our families.  they even wrapped them with very little help from me.  let me also add here that our boys love duct tape and use it to wrap gifts as well.

my parents gave the boys a box with their names on it.  when the boys opened it, ryder exclaimed, "there's nothing in it."  my dad had to point out the pink string that was flowing out of the box and tell them to follow the string.  the boys are only 4 and 3 and had no clue what was going on.  the string lead them to the backyard where they had to put on their helmets before following the string to the side of the house.  under a large brown tarp the boys were thrilled to find two new lightening mcqueen bikes.  thanks gaga and papa!
we all headed out front to parade down the street, showing off our bright red lightening bikes.

it was such a great morning(thank you mom and dad!)!  i hope our boys are always this excited to celebrate the birth of Jesus, even if presents, food and family aren't included.

"I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”  
Luke 2:10-12
