Christmas Day

I threatened with Santa once this Christmas season. Kate responded, "Well, I was bad last year and he still brought gifts." Ouch. Either way, naughty or nice, the magic happened and the jolly elf left some goodies. 
The sugar plums woke up early and were ready to rock.
Kate was pleasantly surprised by her gifts.

And Preston is always happy with a chocolate santa.

Kate got a baby bath tub, a singing Elsa barbie-size doll, and Caroline, the American Girl Doll!

Preston got this bat cave (which I scored on the day had a glitch...for $7.48), a Captain America to go with batman, and a ninja turtle. They both also got new robes!

Luke and I dont usually do gifts for each other, but he had this St Jude tie, a truck air freshener, and some manly body wash in his stocking...and, no, he doesnt stink!

Sam finally woke up to join the fun. He got a busy ball popper and an outfit. Poor thing!

He was just happy to be there!

Luke and I gave the kids a day at Disney World. We had planned a trip to visit Luke's mom (Grammy and PopPop), without telling the kids. They both got Mickey shirts and a Monsters Inc divided bowl for the ride. So excited!!!

We then went to my parents' for brunch. Santa had left dusty boot prints for PawPaw to clean up in his new overalls.

There are still remnants of that silly Santa!

I'm Judy!

Meg and I were so surprised with are La Vie Belle pearls!!

Dad got a ball signed by Joe Theisman. 

We took naps and then headed for our movie! Kate and PawPaw (and Aunt Tracy) had a date to Frozen (Kate saw it again and PawPaw saw it for the first forever!!)

The rest of us saw The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. I really enjoyed it!

Luke 2 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.
So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to himand was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
