Christmas Morning

We were so excited Christmas morning to see that Santa came! 
Abi's gifts: 

Maddy's gifts: 

My stocking and Doug's stocking:

We take turns opening our gifts but the stockings are something everyone can dig into right away.
They both kept getting so excited with each thing they brought out of the stocking.

We get a new book and movie with our stockings.

As soon as we were done with our stockings, we started our gift rotation. Abi and Maddy opened their gifts from Santa and Doug and I opened our gifts from each other. We went youngest to oldest.

Season 2? How did he do that? That is the look of surprised excitement!

Oh my gosh, Abi's face. 

What? Season 4!!!

I love that they get so excited not only for themselves but for each other as well.

All the loot: 

From Santa: My Little Pony sweet shoppe set, Beados starter set, MLP Canterlot High School, 2 small My Little Pony sets, Littlest Pet Shop bunny set, Plusy (the Pokemon stuffed animal that was in her bed when she woke up- Santa always leaves something there for them), a Lalaloopsy mini set, My Little Pony scratch set. 
From Aunt Melinda's family- My Little Pony art book

Her stocking stuff:

From Abi: Some of the Shopkins collector cards. 

Doug's gifts:

He asked me for some new towels, a laundry basket, and a quilt. 
I had to throw in some fun things too so I kept asking for ideas. 
Luckily he had some things he wanted so I was able to get him the Finn and Rey (from the new Star Wars) Pops and the Mario Amiibo. 
(They are set against the top of the quilt I made for him.)

Doug's stocking stuff: 

X-Men movie, socks, Slim Jim, Lifesaver gummy story book, Pistachios, Ferraro Rocher, some candy, a toothbrush, a bunch of Chocolate oranges. 
From Melinda's family: Star Wars key chain.

My gifts: 

From Doug: Snape, Katniss, and Peeta Pops, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Illustrated version, Harry Potter coloring book, Colored pencils set, The Hobbit movie, The Fairy tale Girl by Susan Branch.
From Abi: a cookbook made in her class. 
From Maddy: a hand print with poem, and envelope with a reindeer head on it, and an ornament with her picture on it. 
From Melinda: Owls coloring book

My stocking stuff: 

The Hundred Dresses, Cinderella movie, Pistachios, Whoppers, Sweet tarts, Lifesavers gummy book, some candy, a portable phone charger, a headphone splitter, a wallet, a Hogwarts key chain, a toothbrush, luggage locks, and socks.

I had to put my new Pops up on the shelves right away. 

I made the same Crock pot Breakfast casserole I made last year (you put it in the crock pot on Christmas eve and it is ready in the morning) but for some reason this year I was the only one that liked it. Fail.

We all got right to enjoying our new things. 

Some family/ neighbor gifts: 

After a few hours I had them look for the pickle in the tree.

Abi found it of course and got the extra gift to open: a Snowman Lego set. 

Maddy was disappointed to open her Shopkins 40 set special edition box and see that one was missing. :( I contacted the company and they sent us $5 (about 1/7 of what it cost) or we could send it back and hope we could find it again. She decided to get the money because we knew it would be hard to find again.

They played (and made a horrific mess) all day!

And while they did that (and Doug napped) I read.
