christmas morning is celebrated at our house. stew and i have talked about staying home on christmas since before we were married. last year we decided to make it a reality. thankfully my family has been super flexible about changing it up and starting a new tradition. our boys love that it's at our place and that everyone comes over!
in years past stew and i didn't give our kids gifts. this year i hit up the 90% off halloween sale at target and grabbed 3 costumes for each boy! we wrapped them up in big boxes and the boys were in heaven. ryder even said, "wow, another one from mommy and daddy?!" costumes are a hit around this place, making these gifts a total treat!
i took isaac into the doctor a couple weeks prior to christmas. the doctor asked him what he wanted for christmas. isaac told him he wanted a ninja costume. the doctor replied, "if you're really good santa might bring you that costume." isaac quickly threw out a smile and said, "nah, my mom will get it." the doctor totally laughed. pretty sure we are one of the few families that don't believe in santa. it always catches adults off guard and brings a laugh.
this was actually for noah, but asher took a liking to it!
these two were too tall for the picture in front of the tree. kneeling worked!
