Christmas Eve

Elliott seemed a little confused by Papa Joe dressed as Santa Clause.
 Well, maybe a little more Satan Clause than Santa.
 Nana trying to hold that big boy before he is all grown up.
 Time to open up presents!!
 Sam gets a ball and Elliott takes it away.  I am sure that she is just testing it to make sure it meets the quality standards.
 Elliott not so patiently waiting for Papa Joe to take her toy out of the box.
 Sam appears to have the same issue.
 And Elliott takes away Sam's toy again.
 It figures that she goes for the cell phone. Good thing she got a bunch of alphabet toys today so that she can learn to text.
 Sam is happy that he got his ball back.
 He seems confused as to why there is a monkey on it. You just cannot trust a monkey; they get all over the place.
Mr. Samuel Andrew Barckley I
 Elliott seems really interested...
 in her new blocks!!! (This ended up being a favorite toy. It even had her name on the lid!)
 Sam got a Cookie Monster that makes silly noises when you shake him.
 He thought that Cookie Monster was hilarious!!

Elliott and her Nana 
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

 The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
