Merry Christmas... a month too late...

Here is our Christmas in photos... I know... you've been dying to know what we did haven't you? ;)
Reese and Emma Grace sign their card for their teachers' gifts.  Look at Emmie's name!!!!  I die!
 I added their name to the nice list for Santa... and we kept an eye on the reindeer.
 Making reindeer food.
 How could we not do trendy holiday manis a la Pinterest?
 Our lovely neighbor gave the girls this cardboard castle.  We're still working on coloring it... it'll look really cute in the new house.
 NORAD... I don't think the girls are that into it unfortunately, but it was worth a try.
 MY favorite part... sugar cookies for Santa!

 Christmas Eve gifts... jammies and their Hallmark ornament...
 Berks just wanted to eat her's.
 How lucky am I????

 Leaving their reindeer food for Rudolph and his jabronis.
 Santa's fixins.
 Christmas morning!  Reese got her tool set from Santa...
 ... while EG was obviously smitten with her Jessie outfit.  Santa is a good man.

 The girls picked out really sweet gifts for one another.  They were all super heartfelt, and each of them loved them.

 Then Santa left his peace... until next year! :)
Funny story.  Both girls asked for Dream Lites this year from Santa.  Reese a butterfly and Emma Grace a puppy dog.  I ordered them both on Amazon.  The puppy dog arrived... the butterfly didn't.  I contacted the company, they sent me the butterfly, I stuck it in the closet unopened until Christmas Eve.  7:50 pm... I open the box only to see it's a damn penguin!  PANIC!  Walmart closes in 10 minutes... GOOOOOOOOOOO!  Bryan arrives in 5 minutes, they refuse to let him in... PANIC!  Eventually he finds one at Kmart... all is right with the world. :)
