Jacob and Iree went to bed shaking they were so excited. (I remember that feeling) They decided to camp out in Iree's little tent in her room. They had strict instructions for the morning... they were to come and get us, then we would walk downstairs as a family to see what Santa brought. At 5:00 in the morning my "mothering ears" were alerted!! I quietly walked out into the hall only to catch Jacob coaxing Iree to go and see what Santa brought. She was on the third step! I couldn't believe it. I can remember wanting to go take a look so bad but I never got up the guts to do it. Mark says he snuck down almost every Christmas to see... only Santa wrapped his presents as a child so there wasn't much harm done. Anyway, after a little scolding... Mark made them sit in there room until 6:00. I was laying awake in bed that whole hour just thinking how long this hour was for Jacob and Iree. At 6:00 we went downstairs youngest to oldest to see what Santa brought.
Jacob got an electric scooter. Didn't Santa know he is only 6! Maybe next year Santa can help pay some medical bills that might result from his gift.
Santa brought Iree some baby furniture and a baby that pees in a toilet. Yippie! Mason got a xylophone and a dog you pull with a string.
