Christmas Day 2011

Christmas morning we headed downstairs to see the surprises Santa left. Caitlin is at an age where no present is left wrapped, so even family gifts arrived suddenly Christmas morning. She was so excited!

The Irishman captured those first moments on video:

She kept the helmet on for almost an hour as she opened gifts.

Sean was impressed with his gifts, too.

He was actually kicking the ball.

Santa brought him a Liverpool kit of his very own!

It was a bit overwhelming!

We spent the day playing with our new goodies

and enjoying each other’s company.

(I’ve left out the photo of the Irishman snoozing away soundly on the couch while Caitlin plays around him. He can thank me later!)

My brother and his family sent us a Cracker Barrel gift pack, so it was pancakes for breakfast!

Caitlin did some cooking for her own,

though it was the Irishman who prepared the feast! Turkey, ham, and eight side dishes. It was amazing!

We had a lovely Christmas. It is nice to travel and see family, but I am learning to love our special time as a family of four!
