Christmas Morning


I don't believe there is anything better than being a little kid on Christmas! The girls were excited the entire Christmas Season and the morning of Christmas didn't disappoint. They ooohed and ahhed at everything. They woke up early and waited on the stairs until we verified that Santa had been at our house. They ran down the stairs and screamed when they saw that Santa had really been here.  They were hoping for American Girl dolls.  Santa brought Kit - Kit the American Girl and Lucy received Julie. They have not stopped playing with them or reading their stories. Kit has been waiting for a trumpet since August. She was thrilled when she opened a box and there was her trumpet. She played it right away. It was a perfect morning followed by a perfect day with family!




Santa was here!

Waiting patiently













Just what I wanted!


Me too!










Wake up call!













Merry Christmas!
