Our tradition....

Tonight, we took baths early and got ready for our annual "Open a gift early" night. My dad started this when I was a kid and I have passed it down to my kids. Funny thing is my parents and sister and brother in law opened a gift early tonight too. We love it and the kids talk about opening a gift early for about a month before time. We always pick something simple and fun and make them go one at a time so they can see what each other got and make the fun last longer.

Coleson got a "Big Truck" book. He loves the animal book he got from Ann Marie and Brady for his birthday last year so I knew this would be perfect. He is obsessed with trucks right now. His birthday party should be really fun this year. I have lots planned.

Abbey got a laptop bean bag holder thingy. Ha! She got a laptop from her grandparents this year so she needed something to go in her lap to sit it on.

Brandon got a mix and match Guess Who game. We all played it as a family tonight. We have always loved playing games together and you never get to old for this.

Rascal had fun too watching us all.

Abbey playing on her new laptop.

We are getting ready to start the Christmas fun at our house this week. The kids are so excited and can't wait to open gifts with everyone. We hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas! God has been WONDERFUL to us this year and we hope next year is even better. :)
