Christmas Day!

Christmas morning I heard my girls wake up about 5:30 a.m.
But they knew better then to come ask me if we could get up, I had told all of the kids the night before that 6:30 would be the earliest.
So, right on the dot @ 6:30 they came into our room to get us up.
Poor Rylan was not ready to get up so I had to wake him cuz the kids were so ansy.

Here's what Santa left before the kids attacked all their presents!

Braedon on his new bike!

Can you tell she was excited about the Dippin Dot Maker?!

Lauren's new UGG Dakota shoes, yeah she wouldn't let me take any pics of her of course.

Rylan's new big wheels bike!

Rye didn't care too much about opening any presents this year.
Only about eating the M&M's Santa left!

A horse for her AG doll.

Braedon flew through his presents this year, it was too cute!
Once the kids were done, we sat around for a little bit to enjoy all their new toys.
We then headed over to my mom's house for 10 o'clock to open presents there.

Here's what her tree looked like.

Can you say spoiled?
I have 3 siblings, we all have spouses/girlfriends & there are 10 grandchildren.
Plus my father & uncle also stopped by, so there was quite the group of us!

These are the stockings my mom fills for the grandkids, aren't they huge?!
We have all told her to stop, just get smaller one's, there's too many grandkids now but she won't.
Next year she will have 12 to fill!
I think she's crazy but the kids love them!

She sets up breakfast for us here....

Once the kids have eaten they dig in to the presents.
It tends to get a little chaotic & loud, but I guess that's what happens w/so many kids.

After we all are done opening presents we went back home to change & head back for dinner.
After dinner we then head over to hubby's mom's house for dessert & more presents to open.
Here's where I was bad because I didn't get any more pics, I was a little tired you could say.
We got home about 9:00 p.m. that night.
It was a long day but a great one!!

I did manage to get a pic of my boys in their matching p.j'.'s from hubby's mom.
Aren't they adorable?

And this is the aftermath.....
This is just of the toys, doesn't even include all the clothes they got as well!
Needless to say we had a great Christmas & we were all very happy & are grateful for all the wonderful things we received!

I finally got to cleaning & reorganizing the house a couple days ago so I could put everything away!
Tomorrow we will take down all the Christmas decorations, which is always depressing!
But it's got to be done!

Next is preparing for the birth of our 5th child!
I'm due in 3 weeks!
I can't wait to meet her!
I'm so done w/being pregnant that's for sure!!
