Christmas Morning

2:00a.m. Sewing complete. Wrapping complete. Ready for bed.
6:00 a.m. Being awakened by the smell of coffee brewing and four children singing "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" and "Away in a Manger" outside our door...
Hannah, Sarah, Will, and Josh- ready to open the socks and treats in their stockings! A Duley tradition... no underwear this year, though!

Kay and John got Will camo coveralls for when he hunts and works with Scott... Will is decked out with his new folding saw and pocket knife! The boys had a manly Christmas this year... Josh got a folding saw and pocket knife, too, and Kay gave him a new bow set, complete with quiver and target!

Part of the girls' Christmas gift from Kay is ballet and violin lessons throughout the year. To go along with this, she gave Sarah a new leotard and skirt for dance class, and she gave Hannah a music stand for practicing at home! Hannah tried it out that day!
On a sillier note... haha, get it? "Note?"... Here is Hannah in her gift from her brothers

I made the girls aprons and the boys pajamas this year. The boys were thrilled to see that I had gotten the fabric they liked from Hobby Lobby! I also made the girls knitting needle/sewing accessory totes.
We had a GREAT morning opening gifts, having a big Christmas breakfast, and being lazy around the house. Best of all, we had snow flurries!!!! (OK, so we only saw about 5... but they were flurries, nonetheless!)

I took a little nap on the couch in front of the fire, and Scott took the kids out to play on their favorite gift from us... Scott had set up the zip line! (This was actually a gift from last Christmas that had not gotten set up... he set it up for a surprise while the kids were in Memphis earlier in the week!)
Here goes Josh- He is a little too short, so Scott has to catch him!
Sarah preparing to exit the platform...

Merry Christmas!!!
