We had a really nice Christmas Day.  Zane had a rough time getting to sleep the night before, so we had a late start.  We did stockings and were just ready to open the Santa gifts when my folks arrived and added to the pile of presents.  (besides their gifts, we had sent several Amazon orders out there since we don’t have much room to hide presents).  My brother came by shortly after.

We had a lot of fun unwrapping, although Zane is decidedly NOT a “rip open the packages in a frenzy kid”.  lol.  He opens each one, and once open, explores and plays with the toy for a while, or wants us to read the book to him, ect.  Therefore, opening gifts gets stretched pretty much the entire afternoon, with a good 10-20 minutes between each gift.  Santa didn’t even *wrap* any of the Stocking gifts and it still took us 30-45 minutes to take the objects out of it.  Zora got her stocking undone faster.  lol.

Zane’s first letter to Santa:

Dear Santa
I want
Zane (and the first attempt at a sig where he ran out of room after)

This is how casual it was…we didn’t even set the table, people just grabbed food when they wanted to and ate it while watching Zane unwrap gifts.  Zora, of course, insisted on eating off of my plate instead of her own.  lol.  Hey, she eats salad, so who am I to complain how it gets there.

On a funny note, notice how big the house is?  Now, notice that in one of the smaller rooms, he put the computer desk, the computers, the other desk, the two living room chairs and the couch.  All in one little crowded room.  lol.  So…ya think he is trying to tell us something?

    How sweet! Looks and sounds like it was an awesome day. I’d almost prefer my kiddo opened presents slowly and played with them instead of ripping them all apart in minutes so it’d last longer, but anyway. Still giggling about the crowded computer room though. :)
