Our Christmas

We had a great Christmas.  Pumpkin woke up at 4 a.m. but I got her back to sleep with us in our bed.  Then Peanut was up and ready to go at 6 a.m.  We convinced her we needed a bit more sleep.  (We had been up until 2 a.m. the night before getting things ready for the morning.)  At 7 a.m. I woke up to this whispered conversation from Peanut to Pumpkin:
"Hey, are you awake, Sissy?  It's Christmas.  Santa came.  Do you want to go down stairs?  Wake up!  We can open our presents."  Then she began to tickle Pumpkin to really wake her up.  Daddy and I started laughing and we all headed downstairs.  This is what the girls found under the tree.
Peanut got the "Hungry Hippo" game as she calls it and Pumpkin got "a live baby that goes potty" as she calls it. They were so excited! IMG_1210 IMG_1205
We found the empty plate and letter from Santa which always amazes Peanut. IMG_1195
Peanut's reaction to this present was the best. She has been playing school just about every night after she gets home from school. I found a pretend school set for her to use in her play. She was so excited! IMG_1219
Pumpkin loved all of her presents but got the biggest kick out of the box from her new double doll stroller. Isn't that how it always goes? IMG_1235
We had a relaxing day together. Later in the day we headed off to visit family before the Blizzard of 2012 hit. We were thankful to be safe and sound after we found out that at least 13 inches of snow fell in our town. Christmas is still rolling for us now with family get-togethers and such. We are so blessed and have so much to be thankful for.

I need to have Christmas at your house. I love the conversation between the girls when they were ready to get up. So cute!
