Christmas Morning

Christmas morning came pretty early at the Gerwick house. Surprisingly, Gavin saw his presents and then proceeded to our bedroom to cuddle and tell us that Santa came. We listened to him tell us that Santa moved the stockings from the fireplace, that he ate the cookies, and that Gavin possibly heard him on the roof in the middle of the night. We all snuggled in our bed for about an hour before coming out and waking up the rest of the house. It is a memory that I will cherish forever.

Here are Santa's leftover cookies....which Gavin helped him finish later in the morning.

Look behind the present and you will see Copper, our dog. He got a present too. And believe it or not, several years ago, he would tear open Christmas presents with the best of them.

Gavin helped us wake up the little boys. He likes to rock Grayson in the morning. Very sweet brotherly love!

Grayson liked the Starburst that Santa left him. He did not want to eat them, he just wanted to hold them in his hands.

Here was the big reveal of the playhouse. After everyone opened their stockings and checked out all of their presents, we noticed the letter Santa left. I read it aloud and as soon as Gavin heard... "I left something in your playroom." He took off running up the stairs. The playhouse went over very well. Thanks Santa!

Gage & Grayson preferred to open a gift and the sit and play with it for awhile so it took some time to get through the gifts. Mommy had this same cash register when she was a little girl.
