Merry Christmas Morning.

We had so much fun this Christmas morning! The girls were so excited to see if Santa came. Well Izzie was anyway. She actually slept until 6:45 and crawled up in bed with us. Fifteen minutes later she was begging to go wake up Maddie so we said okay. Daddy went down the stairs first to see if Santa had come and turn on the Christmas tree lights and the girls and I headed down the stairs. Sure enough Santa had come and gone leaving a bunch of presents and his reindeer even made a mess of their food on our coffee table! Next year we should leave Santa a note that says No Reindeer in the house!

The girls were excited about  all their presents but they really liked that Bunny and Teddy got a present too. They also opened the presents that they bought for each other. Izzie picked out a miniature tea set for Maddie and Maddie bought Izzie a mini pillow pal. They kept hugging each other and saying thank you to each other. Now they are playing on the drum that Santa brought them. I'm beginning to suspect that he should have brought two, but I think after awhile they'll be okay with sharing.

In a bit we'll head over to Grandma and Grandpa's house to exchange presents with them and the aunts, uncles and cousins. This is a fun process that takes most of the day, because we have lots of breaks to eat, play and just enjoy the day!

 Izzie even wrote Maddie's name on the gift she gave her sister.

 Maddie wrote Izzie's name too. (She's holding it upside down.)

Trying it out.
