Christmas 2012

I can't believe Christmas is already over!  Boo!!!  We love Christmas at the Jennings' house!!  It was a very sad day yesterday, taking everything down! :( Sad, sad day!  So here a post about Christmas morning!

This year our Christmas kind of had a theme: JOY!  We are so thankful for our 3 joyful kids!!!  I can hardly believe this is our life.  We LOVE every moment of it!  Joy to the World for the Lord has come!!  We love celebrating Jesus' birthday!  Maggie would stop and point out baby Jesus wherever she went this year.  I am so thankful that my kids know why we celebrate Christmas.  It's not because of the gifts or just about Santa, it's the birth of the King! 

So Christmas Eve night we let the kids open one gift each.  They were so excited! 

Archer carried his present around before opening it.  So funny! 

Maggie was so excited to get her Brave toy. 

Archer pulled off most of the paper.  

note to self... even if Hunter wants/needs a new towel, do not give it to him as a Christmas present.  He was not to happy about his new towel! :(  I really thought he was opening something else besides the towel.  Next year, I'll make sure it's something exciting. 

We got our chocolate chip cookies and milk out for Santa.  The apples are for the reindeer. 

They were all to excited for a picture.  They were ready for bed so that Santa could come. 

You wanna cookie???

Santa came!!! 

Hunter was still asleep! 

She got her "Sleeping Beauty bike"!

and he wore this helmet ALL. DAY. LONG. no joke!!!  I thought he was going to sleep in it! 

tackling the tackle dude into the new TeePee!!  I don't have any good pictures of the teepee, but the kids LOVE it!  I think Archer likes it the most, but we have all played and played in it.  I think we might let the big kids camp out in it tomorrow. :)

More presents...

The gift I thought he was opening on Christmas Eve...

cute boy all Christmasy! 

We had such a great Christmas day.  It snowed!!  Just a tiny bit, but there was a little white on the ground.  We mainly stayed inside and played with new toys while watching Christmas movies!  It was awesome!!  

Oh and I have to brag on my sweet husband... well we had told each other "NO PRESENTS!"  Well guess who didn't listen!??  He got me my awesome
but he knew that I am the one who pays our bills and everything.  So every time he would go to Target, he would buy the things he needed plus he would get a $20 gift card.  He has been doing this for MONTHS!  I had no idea!  Then with the gift cards he went in a got the Keurig.  I am still in shock... and a little upset that he got me this awesome gift and I didn't get him anything spectacular.  Next year, Ben!  Next year... watch out! :) 

Here is a video from when the kids walked into see what Santa brought.  It's really long and I'm really only posting it for me. :)  You are welcome to watch, but it is super long!! 

Merry Christmas!!!
