christmas morn

i awoke to little feet scurrying down the stairs. i sat straight up in bed and looked over at the clock.
it read 2:30 A.M. !!!!!!

i know.


addie was yelling out that santa had been there and that he ate the cookies, and that the celery was gone!
i ran my tired tush downstairs and told her it was wayyyy too early and that we needed to sleep a little bit more. we walked up the stairs & she was smiling from ear to ear.
i tucked her back into bed and made my way back to my warm bed and drifted off to sleep.

before i know it i hear her again asking, " is it time yet? can we get up now?"

i look at the clock....

2:45 A.M.

it was going to be a long night. and it was.

i made her a little bed on the floor on my side so i could keep an eye on her if she woke up again.
sure enough our neighbors were up till 4 in the morning letting off fireworks and i found addie with her head pressed to the window watching them.

i brought her back to the bed one last time.
walker woke up around 6:30 and we all arose with excitement.
christmas was HERE!

i was so worried that walker would just want to tear apart all of the gifts, but with a candy cane in hand, he had no other worries or desires. he was as happy and content as could be.
