I know it's 2009 but I can't help but share Christmas morning with you. Scott and I have decided that we will allow Santa to bring small things Christmas morning and the big gifts will come from Mom and Dad.
After all the festivities Christmas Eve, Scott loaded the car with gifts for both sides of the family in preparation for Christmas morning. Our plan was to see what Santa brought in our stockings and then head to my parents to open gifts and then on to Scott's parents that afternoon.
The girls ran down the stairs with excitement and looked at what Santa had placed in their stockings. Morgan turned to the Christmas tree and said, "Let's see if Santa put any presents under the tree!" Merritt ran behind her and after discovering an empty tree said in amazement, "Santa took all our presents!" I'm not sure she thought it was an even exchange but it was a great Christmas shared by all!
