And they got to stay up a little late trying out the new toys. I had as much fun as they did putting things together.
Santa came and ate his cookies and drank his milk after the kids were in bed. He stuffed the stockings and left a couple more presents. The kids actually didn't get up until 6:30, which is late for them. I guess they were worn out from the night before. They were happily playing with the things in their stockings until Dan and I came downstairs to open gifts.
Adam with the cool book the boys got from sister Amy that reads 'The Night before Christmas' and even has their names in it. The look on their faces the first time they heard it say their names was priceless!

It was total chaos when all the gifts were opened with wrapping paper and packaging everywhere. Then it was time for the Christmas cleanup!
Now Adam is still on Christmas break from school and at least the new Christmas gifts are keeping them busy. A few more days until school starts again.
And only a couple more days until the huge New Year's fireworks extravaganza in the neighborhood. This is the last year that arial fireworks will be legal in Hawaii, so I am guessing they are going to go all out this year!
