Their other big desired item from Santa was Doc McStuffins - which happened to be the #1 toy of the Christmas season.
even Lilly had a pile!
the things to enjoy together
We still had to wake the girls up this year - around 8:00. Of course it wasn't hard at all getting them out of bed. I know one day I will certainly appreciate these days instead of getting up in the wee hours of the morning. They were full of excitement as they walked in and looked around. They also got several surprises - a vet/grooming center, a camper and loghouse cabin to go with their dollhouses, DVD's, Peppa Pig accessories, leap pad games, new leap pad bags, Brave characters and more.

My mom stopped by for some Christmas breakfast and we quickly had to alter lunch plans to my uncle's house since my dad was still so sick. I had to pack for Raleigh - the girls wanted to take EVERYTHING with them but I limited them to one bag each since we would be accumulating more and more presents through the day.
We had lunch at Buster and Annette's, quickly exchanged all presents and polyannas, talked for just a bit and then we hit the road to Raleigh.

Mary, Britt Gibby and Owen gave Emma a Lala Loopsy game, Hannah a Princess Yachtzee game and some cute shirts.
I got new wall decorations for the kitchen, a ribbon board, sweater from Banana, and a Christmas decoration for next year. Bo got a new book, 2 Joseph Bank shirts, Mens Health subscription, Lowes Gift card, grill spatula/brush and grill frying pan.

It was a very nice Christmas! Of course the most important thing to me is knowing the true meaning of Christmas and spending time with the people we love. I gave my girls lots of extra squeezes and I just hope they know how much they are loved by so many people. We have the best families and are so thankful to be able to see everyone we love so much on such a very special day.
