The Saturday before Christmas the kids were excited to open presents from Jake's parents:

Ready for Santa:
 Christmas morning! We told the kids there would be no opening of presents until 7 and it actually worked. Gavin slept in until 7 and Amelia woke up just a few minutes prior. Meemaw came over just at the right time to watch the kids open presents.

 Gavin was really excited about a lot of his presents this year:

 The #1 desired present by Amelia, from Meemaw and Pop Pop:
 Legos from Uncle Tom (Gavin got an itunes gift card):

 She put the 2nd set together all by herself:

 We had a great, mostly peaceful Christmas day. We ate Christmas lunch while watching Amelia's new movie, Brave:

 That afternoon Amelia became an official bike rider without training wheels:
 And that evening Meemaw and Pop Pop came over to eat dinner and play a game of Cootie:

 Time to take down the trees. We have lots of great ornaments thanks to Jake's mom:
