it feels like christmas

round 3 in Silver City
at Mom and Dad's
Mom and Dad's tree full of presents ready to be handed out.
We ate breakfast before and during present opening...pigs-in-the-blanket, sausage balls, blueberry scones, fruit.
the guys during a present opening break
It only took a couple of hours this year, going around in a circle, opening one present at a time. The guys don't love it but it is nice to see what everyone got and just enjoy spending time with each other. Mom definitely won the present prize this year. She was opening long after everyone else was done!
Carly and Kacey - Aunt Kacey and Uncle Rocky gave Carly her very own (orange) digital camera which she loves. I can't wait to share some of her photography!
Aunt Donna Sue and Finn mixed in with all the fun wrapping paper - lime green and red definitely dominated this year!
Finn and Mom
Carly with her stocking "bag" - stockings are serious business! I wrote down what Carly listed for a friend when she was asked what was in her stocking....lots of books, books on tape, art stuff, clothes for Julie, bath stuff, games, guitar picks, gift certificate, and other stuff too!
game play - "Whoonu"

Wow, that's a ton of presents, no wonder it took a couple hours to open everything.

The best! Present opening did seem to not take so long. Do you think we got less? or just speedier now that we are older?

I love that bright green wrapping paper. So cute.

I'm excited to see Carly's pictures. Lucky girl!
