Christmas Day 2016

(I'm doing multiple blog posts in one morning because I have a great Internet connection and time, two truly rare and treasured commodities!)


Marcie thrilled with her socks and new nightgown from Aunt Mickey

With Aunt Natalie and Uncle James on Christmas morning. They made us delicious pancakes with special toppings!

Seth with his new LEGO watch from Grandpadad in Texas

David trying to set his watch like a man ;) He would look at it throughout the day and say things like, "Oh, it's already 2 o'clock!" (it wasn't) or "It's time to eat!" (it was).

The most popular gifts of the day were the animal tails Aunt Natalie made the kids: David has the panther tail, Seth has "The Big Bad Wolf" (as they call it) tail, Will has a kangaroo tail, Gracie has a dog tail, and Marcie has the cat tail.

Isaac came up with the brilliant idea to line up five chairs and give the kids presents only when they were patient and seated. That way we could control the order and timing of an otherwise chaotic event! It worked super well.

I ordered the boys superhero capes and masks. They love them!

Seth as Captain America, David as Batman, Will as Superman (with a Big Bad Wolf tail accoutrement)
Marcie as Spiderman :)
David was excited that his LEGO watch was black and yellow just like his Batman costume, so he had me take a picture.

(In this photo he looks so much like me and my brother did!)
One of the two cutest little girls in the world!: Gracie feeding her new baby from Aunt Mickey. She brings me her baby to kiss when it has been accidentally dropped or "hurt" by one of the other quints.

A super-blurry and very rare photo of us reading to the kids at bedtime. Isaac took the photo.Will still has the Big Bad Wolf tail, and Seth is a panther. It was a wonderful Christmas! We are GREATLY blessed.
