Merry Christmas 2015

Christmas day was such a great day this year.  We were thinking the kids wouldn't wake up too early since Isabel slept until 8:30am the day before but storms woke her up at 6:15am and she never went back to sleep. Will woke up a little after 7 and we made them wait for Nana and Grams to get here at 7:30 before we let them go downstairs.  The excitement was at crazy high levels!!

waiting on the stairs-gotta love that bed head

running downstairs to see what Santa left

Both Isabel and Will saw these "stretch-kins" on TV a while before Christmas and decided they just had to have one.  Good thing Santa knew what they were.


Will's big gift was this sports tower.  There are different sports on every side and hockey at the bottom.  Since Will is throwing a ball about 75% of the time he is awake, it seemed like the perfect gift for him.  

Isabel's big gift was a new kindle.  She was so excited to get one and especially one with a pretty purple case!

bow and arrow

and of course basketball

After breakfast and quick showers, it was time to open more presents.  We were all excited about all we received.



Isabel picked out a money clip and best dad trophy at the holiday shop for Josh

Isabel got me a beautiful necklace and Will got me this awesome bejewelled flashlight!

Isabel decided less than a week before Christmas that she would jump on the shopkins bandwagon and wanted some too!

It was an Alabama kind of football for this kid!

I think my mom loved her necklace with her grandchildren's names on it

I love this so much and now just need a place to put it in the new house

We have every Alabama game from this season (other than that one loss) recorded on our DVR and Will has watched them over and over.  We found him a DVD of Alabama's 2009 season when they won the National Championship and Nana got him a DVD of multiple historic games.

putting together the hotwheels track was not an easy task

putting stickers on Isabel's barbie camper wasn't an easy task either

After an afternoon of playing with their new toys, we headed to Nana's house to have dinner and open presents with everyone there

The funniest present of Christmas was to Nana from Josh and Matt.  They recreated a childhood picture and it was hilarious!

sweet Addy loved her presents

Every Bama fan needs a Big Al right?

Sweet Cousins at Christmas! I love that we are in Birmingham and all get to be together
