Christmas Day 2013

We had such a wonderful and relaxing Christmas day this year.  It wasn't raining like last year, so we were all able to enjoy the trampoline that Santa brought outside too. Santa was very good to the kids, and they are some blessed little ones for sure.

Alli's favorite toy happened to be the Woody from the night before, but her second favorite was the big doll house (which really surprised me!).  Lila loved her princess dresses (specifically Ariel) the best, and Grant had a good time playing in his piano play yard.
