I thought Kynlee would be really excited about Christmas morning this year, and I couldn't wait to see it. Come Christmas morning Kynlee was nervous to go down and see what Santa had brought.
She planted herself on the stairs and wouldn't budge. We had to do a little persuading to get her to go to the family room.
Once she saw this cozy coupe she was sold on Christmas. Kynlee has loved cozy coupes since she rode one at a cousin's house last Easter. She even came home in tears one time when Carson and I took her on a walk around the neighborhood and she saw one in someone's yard. It is hard for a little girl to understand that the car didn't belong to us so we couldn't ride it. I considered getting her one for her birthday, but with having triplets and all right around that time it didn't happen. But Santa/Grandma and Grandpa Dalton made a little girls dreams come true.
Santa must have known that Grandpa Dan likes to share his Mt. Dews with Kynlee. And this special little girl must have been really good this year, because she got not 1 cozy coupe...
...but 2. Uncle Jeremy and Aunt Stacy knew Kynlee's love for cozy coupes as well. She sure is spoiled.

The best part about Christmas at my Dad's is the grab bag he does for the kids. (Ok so the boys would argue that it is the prime rib my Dad cooks, but I don't get all that excited about meat.) There is a boy bag and a girl bag, and all the kids get to take turns reaching into a bag to get a little toy. The catch is that there is a little toy snake in the bag, It is usually a younger kid that finds the snake (the older kids know to feel around and avoid it), and Dad jumps and acts all scared when they pull it out. The kids love it.
And finally we had our quiet little Christmas at home. After a crazy week of being with family it was nice to have this little Christmas together.
Carson got me a nice running jacket so I can train for the 1/2 Marathon that is coming up in March. Although after I slipped on some gravel the snow plow pushed up on the sidewalk the other day and fell really hard on my hip, I am kind of doubting my ability to actually run the race.
Carson got a new coat for snowboarding. Do you like that I didn't even take it out of the package it was shipped in?
