Christmas- in a word.

If I had to describe Christmas in a word it would be stick-y!

We woke up Christmas morning, not until almost 8 am (bless you children!) And much to Mason's delight he found 4 tootsie pops tucked in his stocking. Which obviously meant he should have them for breakfast. So he did. 3 of them.

Also pictured above is the infamous Christmas orange. But that comes later. First, there were presents to unwrap:

Even Brittain got caught up in the excitement. She discovered candy canes for the first time and liked both ends equally well although only one end was actually opened.
For breakfast it was waffles smothered in strawberry sauce and/or syrup.

After all the fun and surprises we decided to watch a movie together. Avery was so sweet. She used the treats from her stocking to make each of us a goody cup for the movie. It consisted of 5 orange slices, m&m's dumped on top of those, 2 tootsie rolls, and one tootsie pop. Mason got a little impatient waiting for the movie so he took his cup to the living room and before I knew it, had devoured all 5 orange slices and was lining the peels in a neat little row- on the floor. Only one cup spilled on the freshly mopped floor- which I didn't think was too bad considering the sugar intake and hyper overdrive we were experiencing.
All in all it was a magical, beautiful, very sticky Christmas. I hope that yours was too!

ETA: Avery got 2 sets of paint and Mason got one too

The candy canes went over big with Luke as well this year. The waffles sounded absolutely delicious. Since most of us were fighting bouts of the stomach flu, our Christmas meals consisted of whatever you could find and felt like eating :)

Love it all! Love it!

My kids got nerds. You should try vacuuming them out of shag carpet.

(Yes, I have a shag rug. On purpose.)

oh how sticky we were too! It was mostly the candy canes, and Henry. I even found a bit of candy cane stuck to the side of the puppy.

I am glad to see that I am not the only one who lets her children eat suckers before breakfast on Christmas Day. :-)
Oh, and how did you make the tree lights shot look like that? I really need to learn more about my DSLR.
