Our Family Christmas

We are home from our Christmas travels. The Christmas decorations are all taken down, packed in our van waiting to be taken to our storage unit. But alas I have not blogged about our Christmas festivities.

The girls woke up at 7:00 a.m. on Christmas morning. They cuddled in and watched Curious George. I decided to wait until they realized it was Christmas morning. At 8:00 a.m. Pumpkin saw two new toys and asked what they were. I acted surprised and said, "Santa must have come! Look, he even left a letter." Peanut was in on this action then. Pumpkin found a new counting phone and Peanut found a Lite Bright for them...just the things they had asked for in their letters to Santa.

Then the stockings were discovered and excitedly torn into. Then they ran up the stairs to wake up Daddy! They were so excited to open their presents and to help Mommy and Daddy open our things too.

We had a late breakfast that was a delicious baked apple puff pancake and fruit. After that the naps began.

For supper we had a special snowman pizza which the girls thought was really awesome. For dessert we had a yummy cake and celebrated Jesus' birthday!

After supper the girls got to talk to their cousins via Skype. They were excited to see everyone.
