Christmas Morning

Since Addison moved to a toddler bed she routinely comes into our bed at 3 something every night. I was worried about her spotting the Christmas presents and refusing to go back to bed as she walked through the living room into our bedroom. She came in at around 3 AM. It was dark, so she didn't notice the presents from Santa. 5 AM she woke up again and wanted drinkable yogurt, her normal routine. I finally gave in and went to the kitchen. She followed me and then walked over to the TV and stood by her new dollhouse and asked for Mickey Mouse (Clubhouse). It was still dark and, thankfully, I convinced her to go back to bed without noticing the dollhouse or other gifts. I was the queen of waking up early on Christmas morning, so it is only a matter of time before the kids do the same.

Last year Zack yelled for me from his bedroom when he woke up Christmas morning. I assume because he was scared of running into Santa in the living room. I was very curious about how he'd handle waking up this year. This morning he woke up at 7:15, excitedly ran into our room and hopped into our bed. He gave me a huge hug and said Santa came and brought Addison a new dollhouse, the most visible unwrapped gift. We all got up and then he went to wake up grandma and grandpa who were sleeping downstairs.

Addison looked beautiful with her Rella (Cinderella) ear rings and accessories. She also has never drank so much water as she did today from her new Rella water bottle.


Round two for digital cameras. Zack got a camera last year and decided to rinse it off in the sink because Addison slobbered on it. The camera never worked again, but both kids still love playing with the non-functioning camera. This year I bought one for each of them, to help avoid fighting. Hopefully these cameras stay dry and running.

Ryan Zack got Crossbows and Catapults game from Santa. This was Ryan's favorite game when he was younger and he has been waiting patiently for Zack to grow old enough to play it too. They had a blast playing today. Ryan Zack also got a Nintendo DS and a Nerf machine gun that shoots 3 darts/second.

I'm grateful that I have Addie and her dollhouse.
