Christmas Morning Memories

Elysa, happy with her stash: And Lydia checking out Bryan's new SmartCycle (that is now back at the store. Seriously, if you are thinking about getting one, don't take my testimony. Go online and read the reviews. Santa should have known better than to bring a toy that consistently doesn't work.):Bryan digs into his goodies:And Dylan challenges Bryan in a game on his new basketball goals.***In the meantime***
Check out the piles of toys the kids gave to Uncle Thomas to open for them. :)
Memaw tested out the basketball game for herself. Grandmommy and David raced each other on the new Dance Revolution game.David and his mommaLydia insisted on wearing her princess gear (is that what it's called? gear? sounded better than garb.) Anyhow, she went like this all day Christmas day.And, finally, FINALLY, Elysa stood, unsupported, long enough for me to get a picture! She's been doing this for a few weeks now, but never for the camera! I guess it was her Christmas present to me. :)
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!

Looks like Santa was great to your kids! I love the pic of Elyssa standing up by herself! I can't believe she is 1!

Grandmommy said...

Lots of fun. The adults had as much fun as the kids.

Another blessed Christmas said...

Absolutely gorgeous pictures honey, as usual! Looks like your caln (is that the correct term, football team just sounded a little mean :) had a blessed Christmas and enjoyed all their presents. They really lucked out. Did you pay Uncle Thomas for his tireless efforts, every family should have an after the gift is opened opener! Yay, for Elysa, that was her intention to stand for you on Christmas. She kept it a surprise until then, and you had your camera out, DUH!
