Christmas Morning

Christmas morning I woke up to people talking upstairs. Afraid that I missed something, I rushed up the stairs... well, as much as I "rush" at 6:30 am in the morning :). Trevor and Erica were so excited for Christmas morning they couldn't sleep. Apparently, neither could Alex, who woke up Ian, so we woke up Dad and away we went!

There was quite a bit of truly wonderful, hilarious, and spot on presents that I thought I'd share.

The gift of laughter...Six DVDs of the Carol Burnett show from the family.

The gift of childhood...High School Musical cereal from Chris.

The gift of Memories...

A digital camera from his parents (We took three hundred pictures on his camera this weekend!)

The gift of family...
A binder full of family history and life stories of both the Brown and Mackley families from Cindy.

The gift of "amazing"-ness...Actually, Ian said that his Indiana Jones figurines were "the most amazing of my life," but Mr. Drama King gave us good reactions for all of his presents. This is the Leapster from his parents.

The gift of preparation...

A nerf gun from Alex and Ian which we all had a turn at with varying results.

The rest of the day we just spent chillin' and getting to know our presents :).

I'd have to agree with Ian, this Christmas was the most amazing of my life. :)


  1. I'm glad that you had an amazing Christmas. You are an amazing person so you totally deserved it! And High School Musical Cereal? Really. I'm jealous. So are all of my kidlets :)

  2. I'm liking the matching pj's! Cute, cute, cute!
