Christmas Recap

I'm a little behind because since Christmas someone has been sick. It's been a tough couple of weeks. Plus, I was so exhausted after the Holiday and just enjoyed time with my family. Christmas morning was a blast. I stayed up until about 2:30 Christmas Eve making everything perfect for the next morning. I had to wrap all of the girls gifts, write a letter from Santa, and clean up. I was so excited for the girls to see their special gifts that morning! A new "Snowy" for Ellie, as well as the doll with dress up clothes she asked for and a Rapunzel dress. Summer got the truck she wanted, a new baby doll, and a push toy. 
Lots of pictures in this post!

Reading The Night Before Christmas:
My husband and I looking forward to wrapping together. Too good to be true (Summer woke up and wouldn't go back to sleep so we had to take turns holding her in her chair. She was teething this whole week- it was rough on all of us).
Stocking Stuffers:
(I forgot to add the necklaces I bought so that will be an Easter basket gift instead)
 Such a pretty sight!

We loved seeing their faces as they saw their filled stockings and all the gifts under our tree. They squealed in delight and loved opening their gifts. Ellie was more than happy to help Summer open hers, too. I have to say that Ellie was so excited about every gift. She exclaimed, "awww so cute!" and "so cool!" after unwrapping each gift.

 This picture sums it all up!
The girls in their matching red dresses (Target) and all dressed up!

My husband and I also exchanged gifts and I was happily surprised with the gifts he bought me. He read my blog and bought me the North Face touch gloves, new makeup sets (I love the Urban Decay set!), and the running pants and Clarisonic I wanted. One of the best gifts was a bottle of wine in my stocking! I thought that was pretty creative. He also got us tickets to a Comedy Club and dinner in the city. My favorite gift was Ellie's handmade hand print wreath she made at school and wrapped for us to open Christmas morning. 

After opening gifts at our house, we went to my parents for gifts and Christmas brunch. My Mom makes the best breakfast! Then, we went home to nap the girls and went to his parents house before back to my parents for dinner. It was a busy day, but worth it. I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
