Merry Christmas everyone! We had a wonderful Christmas Eve and Christmas day at our house. The boys did not understand what was going on, nor did they understand the whole presents thing, but it was fun nonetheless! Here is some pictures and videos from Christmas day and the day after Christmas.
Here was our loft with the tree and stockings all full with presents. We even have "presents ON the tree" since if we get envelopes or cards we put them on the tree.
I decided to do a video of the boys as they come out of their room to see what Santa brought them. Like I said, they don't quite understand yet.
WHEELS!!! The boys love wheels. Every car, truck, vehicle with wheels gets turned over and the wheels are spun like crazy.
See what I mean about the wheels??!!
Now, Grant is starting to be our book kid. Plus he LOVES animals. So, needless to say, these books from Santa were a big hit with him. He was "studying" the animals on the front of this book for some time. Not sure why exactly, but he was right up against the book looking.
I thought they might be a little overwhelmed with the presents and toys, but they did really well.
Grant was even kind enough to "smile" for the camera!
Jet has a stocking too. This year he got about 8 tennis balls in his stocking. I think Alex and Ethan had more fun with the tennis balls, throwing them for Jet, then Jet really did.
The boys got a hat and some mittens from Grandma and Grandpa Fischer. We put the hats on Alex and Grant and the gloves on Grant. He was not fond of the gloves. In this video they have their hats on (Ethan wouldn't keep his on) and Ethan is playing with the helicopter they got.

We went to church Sunday morning. The boys spent the morning in the nursery. After church, it was gorgeous outside, so we spent a bit of time on our front lawn in the sun. It was so nice.
Grandma wanted a picture of them and the boys, so we took some. This was the best one.
I laid out a huge blanket on the grass and didn't think the boys would crawl off it. They used to be scared of the grass. However, Alex and Grant both ventured off. Ethan stayed put. He did not like the feel of the grass!
Alex found the stroller strapped on to the back of the van. Look, another wheel!!
Then he walked all over the driveway and sidewalk. I had to take their shoes off because they were dragging their feet when they crawl. It was scraping the leather off the tips of their shoes. So, they are in their socks. Oh well.
Grant got his exercise in for the day. He decided he was basically going to crawl around the block. He made it quite a ways around the corner, but there was broken glass on the sidewalk so we had to bring him back.
He enjoyed sitting on the corner!! :)
