Christmas Day 2010

Waiting to come downstairs on Christmas morning:

Woo-hoo, presents galore!!

Maggie gets a new book (which has been great to bring to Mass):

Eamon is thrilled with his personalized piggy bank from Nana.  Now he's just like the big boys!

This was a popular movie this year...we received three of them!  Good thing Wal-Mart accepts most returns :)

Horses from Nana (I wonder if Aunt Diana had any part in picking these out??):

Yes!  More lego's!!

This little girl only asked for one Christmas gift - a baby Cinderella doll!  How fitting; a princess for a princess:

Boys and their toys...

This Christmas was very special, because we had a BIG gift to give to the kids.  But we didn't just want to tell them what it was, so we set up a scavenger hunt with clues.  Each clue led them to a scrabble letter, and another clue, until they found all 11 letters.

Then the unscrambling of the letters began:

What ever could it spell?

They finally figured out the second half with a little help:

And Andrew thought he had solved it with this:

With a little shuffle, they finally got it right!

Please don't mind the tired and frumpy mom with the video camera:

Grandpa and the boys are all smiles!

Now they just have to wait until February.  It just.might.kill.them!
