A Mess on Christmas Morning


Now that you’ve seen the pics from Christmas morning at our house, I wanted to show you a video that I took right when all of the kids woke up.

As you saw in the picTORIal, we awoke to a huge mess in the living room! Here’s a super cute video of Liam explaining what happened, and both Liam and Stella wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!

What was the first thing you and your fam did on Christmas morning?

    UMM. T. I was just looking at some of your home video clips… wasn’t sure if you were AWARE… but there’s a ‘HOT Banging’ one on there??? Um, kinda funny but also kinda not appropriate? Kinda surprising!! :O

    ^^Regarding the previous post. I guess I was just surprised!! Here I had been watching video’s like getting the McDermott Christmas Tree, and, Mess on Christmas Morning, and then when I clicked on this one, well let’s just say… it was different!! lol!! Certainly part of the reason why your marriage is so successful though, no doubt!! lol. Perhaps it belongs in the ‘Love’ category?? ;]
