Generous Gifts from Different Santas

Christmas is much much fun for the kids especially when they are opening the gifts from Santa.  It's a tradition for the Cottrill's clan to  celebrate Christmas at their parent's home.  It's a way of getting in touch with each other.
Rylie love the notebook she received from Tita Chris and Gail.
Thanks Tita Chris for the awesome tri-level matchbox garage and the set of  cars.
When we came home, we let the kids open up the gifts from us and from friends.
Rylie got Zoobles and a purse from Mommy and Daddy.
Thanks to the  Kinder family for the adventure tent they gave to the kids.
EJ got stinky from Mommy and Daddy, he love it!
Uncle Dave  got EJ a nerf gun and  a car set while Rylie got a  barbie set from Aunt Michale.
Thanks to Jen and Jim for the  awesome play dough set.
Here's Rylie's new purse.   We would like to thank Dad for the cash gift that he gave to the kids, that will go to their college fund.

Thanks to Mommy Dhemz for the magnetic travel game set and for the pasalubong  that she sent from California.
"Santa" is so generous this year, our princes have her dream kitchen set.  She's been waking up early and  act like cooking breakfast for us.  She even brought the tray in our bed  this morning.
EJ got a pretty awesome race track from "Santa".  All of us enjoy racing on this one.
I bet, your house is like ours where there are piles of boxes from the gifts.  I found these neat craft ideas from the parenting tip of the day from

Don’t throw out all those big boxes left over from the holidays! Keep them for your baby and toddler to play with or have your kid make one of these adorable cardboard box crafts.  Cute Cardboard Box Crafts

Have a nice 3rd day of Christmas folks!

Wow naman, how awesome were the gifts received by all of you, especially the kids. They got wonderful expensive gifts just about from everybody including auntie Dhemz, lol. Rylie got expensive gifts like the netbook and the play kitchen set. And EJ got a top of the line race car tracks and cars. And the look on the face of John while playing the race track of EJ was child like. He looks like a little boy beaming with excitement playing his favorite toy, lol. What memorable Christmas celebration you had this Christmas. Truly, you were generously blessed by the Lord. Thanks for the joyous post. God bless you all always.

I had a slot racing car track when I was much younger, and loved it. My sisters had a small kitchen as well. The memories will last a long time with your kids. Christmas is so nice for our children, there is a magic in their eyes as Santa's visit is so great. Beautiful (and remember - they grow sooooo fast...

Happy New Year to you, John, FIL and your beautiful children!
