Well, Christmas morning finally arrived...after a little Christmas drama the night before!!! Abby had fallen fast asleep at 6pm so we tucked her into bed and figured that was it. Amelia followed by going to bed around 7:15 and then Santa came and left! Joe fell asleep on the couch downstairs and I fell asleep in bed...around 11:30 Abby woke me up saying "Momma Santa came and left lots of presents" and apparently she ran down to tell Joe as well. Joe convinced Abby that she had to get some sleep and that she could have the presents in the morning...apparently she didn't think sleep was a good option as she kept running up and down the hall trying to see if it was time to wake up!!!

Finally, it was 6am and Amelia woke up and then Abby re-woke up and then well, we had to get up. We went downstairs and Abby was right - Santa arrived!!!

Abby being the big sister that she is decided she was going to help Amelia & the dogs with their stockings....

Amelia was so happy to find a harmonica and cell phone in her stocking...and as you can see from the pictures of the dogs waiting patiently for Abby's help... new toys made them very happy!

And then I stopped taking pictures for awhile. At one point Abby opens up this princess jewel game (like the fishing game where you fish for fish for jewels)...anyways, she opens it looks at me and said in a very loud voice "I didn't ask Santa for THIS I wanted a cash register..." we told her to keep looking and maybe she'd find one. She did find it...unfortunately it was so cheaply made that it just about broke coming out of the box.
and a few other pictures will be soon uploaded to our Kodak site.
Merry Christmas from our family to yours!!! Hope this New Year brings everything you could ever ask for!
