We had to wake Katie up at 7:20 because the girls couldn’t wait any longer. Okay everyone. Stuff some doughnuts into your mouth or no presents! Yes, our Christmas Day breakfast. Well, “before presents” breakfast.
Here is the before
And here is the after
The kids all had fun today. Here are a few scenes:
Alex’s stuff (minus a movie on backorder and a video game that I purchased which we already own. Good grief.)
Katie’s stuff (complete with a Georgia State frame for next year!)
Anna Grace and her Shooting Ladders
At one point, I looked up and found this
Yes, Katie and Alex playing Lincoln Logs. In fact, they were “fighting” over the pieces.
Fast forward a few hours and we add the fun of our friends for a casual stromboli and pizza dinner.
Alex being super cooperative once again for pictures. I will get this boy's picture even if it causes bodily harm to one of us.
Ah, then the brilliant idea to head outside and play Manhunt in the dark and the rain. What fun. I am then summoned to come see my son. He is half way up a pine tree in the backyard, in the rain, in the dark. I really don’t want to go to the ER today so get your sorry little self down that tree, NOW!
Here are the four wet kids after their great excursion
The two little ones in their new jammies
And the four adults
We capped off the evening with a new game
Think Trivial Pursuit type stuff. Boy did I feel dumb!
But the ultimate gift of the day.
Think back a while ago when I talked about the new Barbie movie the girls love. Barbie and the Diamond Castle (or something like that). They can reeact the movie scenes, sing the songs, and many other
Well, Santa got the brilliant idea to buy the Barbies to go with the movie. Not a big deal, right? However, Santa forgot to read the fine print. These Barbies actually sing the songs.
Yes. They do.
AND, if you have the two Barbies (from the movie) hold hands, they sing a duet. Aren’t we so lucky?
Now you are too. Here’s a taste of what we’ve heard today. I think the batteries may mysteriously disappear tomorrow. Shh, don’t tell….
