Santa came at some point in the night and ate our cookies and delivered the presents. Elle instructed us to put a baby gate at the top of the stairs and we were to move it when she could come down. Which I think was meant to mean in the morning. She did not want to run into Santa in the house knowing her tendency to roam the house at all hours of the night. At 2:30 AM we were woken up by an extremely excited little girl jumping up and down letting us know that Santa had arrived! She was so excited and wanted to get up right then and there but we made her get into bed with us for a little while. But then she was back up around 4 or 5 and asked to just go lay on the couch. I'm pretty sure she knew everything she and Walker had from Santa before anyone else ever woke up. We finally went and got Walker out of his crib around 6 and we had them sit on the stairs for the official come down. Walker was thrilled that the presents had finally come!
Going through their stockings that were full of fun stuff.
Elle with her Vampirina house. One of her main gifts she asked for from Santa.
Daddy putting together a Paw Patrol train track for Walker.
Elle received a karaoke microphone form Santa and she absolutely loves it. It plays
the music through blue tooth from our phones and it is lots of fun!
Loving on her Welly Wisher doll in her new cold weather outfit.
Opening presents from Mommy and Daddy. All the presents from us were wrapped under the tree.
Sitting on his Paw Patrol potty because that is the natural place to sit to open presents!
Fingerling Sloths. For memories sake these were a HOT toy this Christmas that everyone was looking for and going nuts for. And I just happened to find these at Walmart one day and paid the regular price for them which was about $15. Which I am glad because the kids don't
care too much about them.
Kenny and I exchanged stockings which really we should just call Christmas since we both got each other some really good stuff. It is nice to have Elle old enough to snap a picture of the two of us on Christmas morning.
Nannee and CeCe got in to Starkville mid morning just in time for us to all have a big breakfast together. Then we just hung out for a little while and let the kids show them their toys and play for a little while before started another fun round of present opening!
Look at that super fun and super mess!
Walker trying out his new balance bike from Nanee.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing and opening and playing with toys. Lots and lots of opening of toys and lots and lots of playing. Then that night Mom made the traditional chicken enchiladas and we watched Remember the Titans.
