After many preparations, much celebrating, and a whole lot of anticipation...
It was probably my best Christmas ever...
and mostly because my boys were at such fun ages.
We spent Christmas Eve in Alpine, and it was so fun to have Brandon and DeEtte in town with Grayson as well as Tiffany and her kids.
When we got home, Jack got cookies, milk, and carrots ready for Santa and his reindeer.
He was particular down to the exact spot we set them on the table.
I had some darling matching jammies for my boys to wear on Christmas Eve, but Grandma Jones gifted them some others at her house that night...so, they are wearing those in all these pics. The boys absolutely love them...
My camera just doesn't.
Just wait until you see Tucker's next to Jack's.
Not the bset combo. Haha!
Bedtime! (coffin in background)
Bedtime stories....soooo excited!
The boys slept great...and we had to wake them up around 7:30 to get the show on the road!
I was bursting with excitement by 5:30, but all anyone else wanted to do was sleep!
It was so cute when we woke Jack up...
He ran out to see the carrots, cookies, and milk eaten, and there was a sign at the bottom of the stairs from Santa telling the boys to go upstairs!
He busted into Tucker's room to wake him up and poor Tuck was so confused.
We've got some great video footage of that whole scene.
Once the boys made it upstairs, they immediately saw that Santa decorated the room with a sign and Christmas lights everywhere.
It didn't take long for them to spot their presents and start tearing them apart!
Jack got all of his (rare) wishes, and much more.
Tucker was just happy to finally have something that wasn't a reject toy from Jack.

Sweet little kidlets did pretty darn good!
Brett and I exchanged gifts while the boys played and we were spoiled with snow pants, watches, clothes, boots, gift cards, makeup, games, etc, etc!
We quickly got our bearings and pried our boys away from their toys to head up to my parents for more celebrating!
We enjoyed more present opening and a fantastic brunch.
My boys were so fun and well behaved I could hardly believe it.
Tucker took a wonderful nap and Jack had the time of his life playing with his cousins.
It was a really relaxing way to spend the majority of Christmas, and I couldn't have asked for better people to spend it with.
All I want for Christmas is to be around all of these people every year.
We geared up for round 2 up in Alpine, and made the trip up for dinner and to act out the nativity. We were all pretty tired, but the traditions in Alpine every Christmas are some of our favorite things about the holiday.
Brett was the scariest wise man I had ever seen.
My boys in their Christmas jammies....
The perfect picture to wrap up this Christmas post.
These boys are my everything, and made my holiday one of the best I can recall.
How did I get so lucky?
