Our Christmas Morning

We had a really nice, relaxing Christmas morning at home. Summer and Camryn didn’t wake themselves up – Joe and I finally decided to wake them up around 8:30. When they remembered what day it was, they couldn’t wait to see what Santa had left them and ran into the living room.

Don’t mind the dry wall in the hall way.

Before opening their presents, they checked the kitchen table. Santa had eaten his cookies and drank his milk, and even left them some Hershey Kisses and a letter!

The first thing they saw were their Pillow Pets. They had been asking for them for a really long time, and it was the one thing they kept requesting that Santa bring them. It took Santa a VERY long time and lots of trips to different stores to find the unicorn that Camryn wanted. Thank goodness he found it on Christmas Eve day, or this picture might not be full of pure joy like it is.

We read the letter Santa wrote. He told them they were very good girls this year and to always be kind to each other. Maybe they’ll listen to Santa about fighting with each other more than mommy.

They loved everything they got from Santa, and what Joe and I got them – Lalaloopsy dolls.

Joe and I were both happy with what we got as well… Joe got another year of XBox Live and a new game he’d been wanting, and I got a Kindle Touch! I am LOVING it.

After an hour or so of playing with toys, struggling with packaging and zip ties, and a little coffee, we got ready for the day and headed to my parents’ house for the other half of our Christmas morning.

When we first got there, we sat down to an amazing breakfast casserole that my mom cooks every year. Then it was present time!

The girls got these from Uncle Wes.
