On the First Day of Christmas

Sam (our earliest riser) was up before 8, followed shortly thereafter by Charlie. Mary decided to join us close to 9. The boys opened their stockings (from Santa) while waiting for Mary. Once she was down, we dove into our gifts (something you want, something you need, something to wear and something to read). Mary's want was a cradle for her dolls. Whenever we get to the page with a cradle in "Baby's First Book", Mary points at it and says, "I need that." I found a nice, simple one on Etsy. I made a little mattress covered with some fabric she liked. She loves it~
Sam's "want" was a DSi~
And for our Irish fan's "wear" (he also got a pair of Elf pajamas)~
Charlie has been looking for a leather jacket for several months. He's pretty stoked about this~
Mary loves her princess dress~
A set of real bagpipes!!! The Pipe Major of the band that Charlie takes lessons with found a really cool set, made in 1971 that had never been played. We were able to get a pretty good deal on them, and Charlie, as you can see, is thrilled~
An Ipod for Charlie's "want" ~
Mary found a toothbrush from Santa in her stocking~
Sammy the Elf~

We had a really nice, laid back morning. Later, some friends from church joined us for Christmas dinner ( a yummy honey-baked ham).
