Christmas: UNwrapped

The holidays are over and it's definitely been a whirlwind.  Here are a few things we did leading up to our triple threat Christmas...

Ballet performance, Cheer competition, Parade performance, PTA meetings, Booster Club meetings, cheer practices, church classes, 2 cheer Christmas Parties, doctor appointments, our annual cul-de-sac Christmas Party, Breakfast with Santa at the school, singing at a nursing home, Preschool party, Ballet party & Maggie had new tubes put in her ears & adenoids removed.

After all those things were completed, we finally got to settle down & focus on good times with family.

We spent Christmas Eve at the Watson's house this year.  We attended mass at 4:30pm then went to their house afterwards for dinner & gifts.  The girls were SO excited to have received their very first American Girl dolls!  I think Izzy was the most excited!
Someone was excited to get some moola!
Maggie's doll is winking saying Heeeeey! :-)


Izzy & Maggie got dressed in their new Frozen footies before we went home.  Once home, we put out cookies for Santa & reindeer food & carrots for the reindeer & went to bed in hopes Santa would soon arrive!



SANTA CAME!!!  The girls woke up Christmas morning around 6:30am to find Santa had come while they slept!  I guess we were all really good this year because Santa was extra nice to everyone!  Ride on car, ziggle, tablet, bedding, a grill, wine fridge, phones, makeup, bean bag chairs, etc.  You name it, we got it!  I also got a new shower door from Bo to be chosen soon by yours truly! :-) (why do I suddenly hear a major renovation about to happen? ;-)  )

 

Izzy got a Samsung 7" tablet & was SO excited!
My family showed up later that morning for a late breakfast, to play with all of their new toys & to get ready for our family dinner that night.
Val, me & Julie with our mommy.  :-)
Nothing like playing in the street on Christmas morning with all of your cousins!

Even the adults got in on the action!

The rest of the family arrived and we got the tamales on the stove & the turkey in the fryer!

Dinner is served! 

Let's open some gifts...

At the end of the night, Maggie grabbed her Hideaway Pet & passed out on the floor.  
Long, fantastic day surrounded by family!




The next day, we celebrated Christmas with my dad.  Our evening was filled with fajitas, crafts & more cousin time.


Santa even made a special appearance just for us!



I don't know about you, but I was officially pooped after all of our festivities...but I wouldn't change one thing!
I hope you had all a very...
