Christmas Eve

They were so excited for Santa to arrive, so we decided to open the huge box from Aunt Candi and Ariel. It was a really nice fountain for our yard. Thanks Candi!!! Since that was a family gift, we let them all open one gift from Aunt Christine. They were so happy to be able to open a present. On the parent front, we were so excited to actually get to bed by 12:30! Do you believe it? We actually got some sleep! I guess that was our Christmas present to each other:)

What do they always say? Give the kids a gift and all they want to play with is....the box.  Posted by Picasa

The Scavo's finally got a tree!

With only 10 days until Christmas, we got a tree. I was bit bummed to not be able to go and pick the tree out with the family, but I had sprained my right ankle right before we were to go get it. Charles and Tyler did an excellent job picking the right tree. When they brought it in, we were so surprised by the little ones reactions. Michael right away put his little toy reindeer in the tree and Lindsey squealed "It is so bootiful!". She also informed us that we needed a star right away! It was alot of fun helping them decorate, exhausting yes, but fun. As soon as Lindsey or Tyler put an ornament on the tree, Michael was there to take it down. What a great night.
