They were excited. They learned how to rip through the paper and to see what was inside. It melted my heart watching my boys (even Daddy) opening their presents. I have a real tough time waiting until Christmas morning, I love giving surprises! We have started our own traditions as a family now. I'm kind of a grown up now being a mama and all. So our morning consisted of presents and then fresh baked cinnamon rolls and eggs benedict for breakfast. Perfect morning with my beautiful family.
