Day 358 - A Christmas Surprise...

My side of the family is coming for Christmas lunch tomorrow so this afternoon we went to the grocery store for supplies. When we got home, Daddy read us the story of our Savior's birth...

Then the girls (and Jonah) got to open the traditional one present for Christmas Eve. It always cracks me up that they are surprised it is pajamas :o)

For most kids, this would be a boring gift, but our girls LOVE (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE) pajamas :o) They were estatic! Haha!

We decided to top off our night by watching a movie in the den. You can imagine our surprise when we walked into the room and discovered Santa made his very first stop at our house while we were grocery shopping! To say, we were surprised would be an understatement! All we can figure, is that the girls (and Jonah) were so good, Santa wanted to reward them by visiting them early. Good thing, we left out a snack for Santa and Rudolph before we left to go shopping (in case we forgot once we got home!)...

The kids had a ball playing with all of their new toys and it was so nice not to be rushed.

Even though Jonah had more presents than any of the girls, he still chose to play with their stuff :o) I think we have ruined him...haha!
