We got lots of yummy stuff from Santa.
And he ate lots of the peanut butter cookies that Kendall and the kids made the night before.
We ate some delicious cinnamon and orange rolls to tide us over until the fantastic omelets that are tradition to have Christmas morning at Kendall's family's house.
And we got to spend the day with Uncle Aaron...
and Uncle Scott...
Grandpa Reed has been growing out his beard just for Christmas. It's more salt than pepper now! But he still didn't fool the kids.
And of course, the lovely Grandma Kim. Can you even believe this woman has 11 grandkids already?
The kids found the stash from Santa right away, and Avri read the letter that Santa left. He decided to leave most of our Christmas presents at our house, because he knew that we wouldn't have room for them in the van.
But he still left everyone some treats, their own juice bottle...
a couple of new movies to watch on the way home...
and a game to play!
After the Santa gifts we opened our gifts from Grandma and Grandpa. Rigdon really enjoyed opening presents - his AND everyone else's.
Sadie was very excited about her new clothes that she got. She is 100% girl.
Talmage got some awesome shoes that light up that he has been enjoying. But I think that the real highlight was the superhero cape that Grandma made for him. It is reversible with Batman on one side and Superman on the other side.
Here is the Batman side, complete with mask.
Avri made out like a bandit as well, getting some darling clothes both for home and school.
A little later in the morning one of Kendall's other sisters came with her kids and we got to watch them open their gifts and give them their wands as well. The kids were all so excited about their wands that they immediately started running around the house all together practicing incantations. :)
This is one of our little nieces, Baubbi, who is only 2 months younger than Rigdon, but this was the first time that we had the chance to meet her. She is SOOO tiny and looks even more so next to our tank of a son.
Kendall's sister Amber, her husband Cody, and their kids Ricky, Cali, and Baubbi. It was such a nice sunny Christmas morning, and warm enough that we didn't have to wear coats even!
