I Love Christmas!

I've always loved Christmas (what's not to love) but it is even better now that Peyton and Ella are in our family. It is so fun to watch them get excited about everything! This Christmas was definitely filled w/ chaos but I wouldn't have it any other way.

The day was filled with opening presents, eating, opening more presents, more eating, drinking, laughing and FUN!

I gave the girls a tent and tunnel. To say they loved it would be an understatement. After Peyton opened it she said, "Just what I wanted!" Haha! They must have gone through the tunnel 50 times! Grampy and Grammy gave the girls bongo drums and after opening them Peyton said, "I love bongo drums!" and proceeded to kiss them!

My grandfather, Paul and Peyton's great grandfather sent the girls "Twas the Night Before Christmas" which he had read so they could play it and hear his voice. Peyton really liked it and he also included a picture of himself reading it!

I also gave the girls a singing frog and monkey. Peyton had seen them in Target when we were shopping one day and loved them. I bought them that day w/o her seeing. When she opened it she said, "Hey I remember this from the store."

Since Peyton was occupied w/ my iPhone Ella got to enjoy both of them. She loved watching them sing and dance. It was so cute!

We had such a fun day together. So thankful for a happy and (mostly) healthy family! We are truly blessed!
