This Christmas was the best! Having children REALLY makes it fantastic! We stayed up late the night before to prepare and help out Santa and then went to bed. An hour later Zeke woke up hungry and I was too lazy to put him back in the crib. Then around 2:30 Rosalee woke up screaming about bugs coming to get her and that her room was too dangerous. So she ended up in our bed too. By the time I got up this is what we had-
Rosalee was tired so it took her a little bit to get into her new things.

I told my father-in-law that I was going to use the 12 days to Christmas to fill his stocking. Oh yeah, I did it! It took a 5 pound bag of oranges to finish it off but whatever works.

My stocking gifts... somebody LOVES me!
Once Rosalee realized that Santa brought her a "big girl bed" she refused to get out of it. She just sat there the whole time opening her gifts.
Jenny bought Jesse a head massage device. He was excited about it but I think it feels weird.
I let Zeke have a candy cane and he wasn't too sure about it. Then he refused to let go and cried when I took it away. Silly baby!
Rosalee got some dolls from her Aunt Tia and made them food with her new dishes and then took them with her the rest of the day.

After eating some breakfast, playing with toys, and changing into our new pajamas we headed north to Rexburg to visit Jesse's grandparents. We brought them a box of snacks, had dinner, and then spent the night at their house.
We saved the presents from Jesse's parents so Rosalee and Zeke could open things with their cousins. By the end the floor was covered in paper and toys but it was wonderful to watch. The cousins kept trading toys back and forth and I think some only lasted a few minutes before being broken in some way, but they had fun so that's all that mattered!
The next day we relaxed watching movies and Grandma James made us her Macho Nachos. I pretty sure I ate more than I should but they were too good to pass up!
When we got home Rosalee kept reminding us that she was going to sleep in her big girl bed. Jesse set it up in her room with Trouble's bed next to it. When I went in to check on her Trouble was in the bed, but Rosalee didn't get out so I didn't care. She hasn't tried to get out of her bed at night or during naps so we're extremely happy! One morning we did find her with her head in the dog's bed and her feet on the pillow. We can only guess that she rolled out of bed but we'll never know for sure!
