merry christmas 2010!!

the girls woke up anxiously excited on christmas morning. abby ran straight to the tree, saw all the presents and said, "see, i told you santa would come!!" it was hilarious. they immediately began tearing into their gifts and loved them all. abby's most favorite gift that she's been asking for for months was her very own look-a-like american girl doll. she has brown eyes and hair just like abby along with her ears pierced. abby was in heaven as she hugged the box once she opened it. as for lyla, her favorite was the big crayola easel in which she can draw on and play with the magnets, as well as her shopping cart. here are some pics...shortly after opening presents from santa, uncle ian and gang came over for some yummy breakfast at 9:00am. we all ate eggs, cheese grits, bacon, biscuits, etc., and then everyone hung out for awhile as all the kids played with their new toys. oh, and did i mention that daddy bought the girls "dance dance revolution" along with some other games for the wii? yeah, it was awesome and definitely makes for a good time. here are some pics...later in the day, we all decided to go see a movie. this is one of auntie jess's traditions that she started with the scarlett family when they are in town every year. we decided to go see "little fockers" and it was hilarious. we were worried about the roads since it had been snowing all morning, but thankfully, it wasn't cold enough for it to stick so we were okay driving in it.

after the movie, we drove home, i took a quick shower and then we headed back down to the restaurant where we celebrated christmas with jay's side of the family. the food was ready for us and dude, baby jemma and i were starving so there was definitely no hesitation when making a plate. we said prayer, held english crackers as we pulled them open, and then donned our christmas hats, read off our jokes, and adored the little christmas ornaments that were inside.soon we all sat down to eat, finished our meal, and then let the kiddos unwrap their christmas presents by the tree. wrapping paper went flying and when i say that all the kiddos racked up, i mean they RACKED.UP. lyla received a beloved pillow pet, babydolls, a pink cozy coupe, play-doh, etc. and abby received all things disney's "rapunzel" related including a doll that was nearly taller than her, puzzles, make-up, crafts, and everything in between. here are some pics...all in all, it was wonderful christmas. the older the girls get, the more fun these holidays are. lastly, thanks to auntie jess for providing the girls christmas dresses...they are SOO cute!! here are just a few other candid pictures i tool throughout the night with family that we love. hope everyone had a very merry christmas! xoxo
