I had my Christmas post all written, and then my crappy laptop shut down and that was that. We had a great Christmas. Scott and I like to stretch things out as much as possible. So, we started off the morning with our second annual massive breakfast burrito breakfast. The girls were a little underwhelmed and had already forgotten about Christmas. Ha. Once we were done eating, I asked Ada if she knew what was behind the family room door. Then it all clicked. She got super excited and charged for the room.
The morning started off with "pet hats" and pillow pets. The girls loved them. Well, Ada loved them. Ivy was just following Ada's lead. She has not connected to her pillow pet like Ada has.
It was fun watching the girls "help" all of us open our gifts. Ada was great because every present that was opened, she made such a big deal about. She kept saying, "This is the best Christmas ever!" I vaguely remember saying similar things when I was around 5. I remember my brother and I looking up into the heavens (In the early AM), hugging our present, and saying, "Thank-you Santa!"
Ivy loves Minnie Mouse. She has played with this stuffed animal maybe once!
Sno-Cone maker! I haven't used it yet, but am excited to.
Ivy destroyed her Belle's hair within an hour and then she has been trying to destroy Ada's Ariel since.
Anytime we ask Ada what she wants to be when she grows up she says, " A soccer player and babysitter." We will see if that changes after she plays soccer this fall
All she asked for was a Doc McStuffins kit, which I find funny because she rarely watches the show!
Chad scored big Christmas Morning. He always ends up with a crazy amount of gifts.
So, every Christmas, for the past 5 years, I have been knitting scarves. I apologize to those first receivers because I have come a long way since then. In fact, if you haven't already, throw it away and I will make you a new one. I have a goal to learn a different knit this year and really change things up! I am proud to say that Scott wears his scarf everyday!
We spent the rest of the day eating, lounging around, going to the park (it was a beautiful day) and playing games. What a great day!
