This was the first year Emmy understood what happened Christmas morning so it was really fun! She could barely get to sleep at night so she was kind of tired the next morning. We were supposed to be at the Bakers’ by 9:00 so we finally had to wake Emmy up. She jumped right up and started saying SANTA CLAUS, SANTA CLAUS!! A couple of Emmy’s presents were pretty big so Santa left them at our house instead of the Bakers’. Emmy got a brand new big girl bed and a crib and high chair set for her dolls. She was really excited and we captured it all on video…but forgot to take pictures! But we did snap some shots of her bed once it was all set up! I’ll post those later.
After we opened the couple presents here at home we went to the Baker’s where Santa had brought the rest of our Christmas! It was fun to see all of the kids so excited! And the big kids (like Alex and I) were pretty excited too!!
The tree was up on a table to keep little hands away (which I thought was a great idea!) and then the presents were piled up from floor to the top of the table (which the kids thought was also pretty awesome!)
Emmy trying to carry a bunch of her presents at once! We had to convince her to set down every toy after she opened it so that she could open the next one. She just wanted to hold them all in her arms!
Kaylee and I relaxing in the big comfy chair!
Emmy opening Wall-E. She had been asking for this ever since she saw it in the theater. Her cousins are also very big Wall-E fans and they got it for Christmas too!
Emmy, Logan and Joshua thanking Grandma and Grandpa for all their new toys!!

“It’s just what I wanted!!” Logan was so excited when he opened this toy that he had to play with it right away! That Santa is so good at knowing just what a little boy would want!
Emmy quickly set up all her toys in a giant circle around her! The Dora chair was also a Christmas present…so she was surrounded!
“I feel pretty…oh so pretty” Her ponies came with a mirror, combs, and bunch of barrettes that can also be used for people! She loves to play beauty shop which is probably why Santa picked this particular box of ponies! The barrettes even clip into Daddy’s hair which was so exciting!
When I was little my Aunt made us a puppet stage like this one. Last year Kath got all her grandchildren sesame street puppets so I thought it would be fun to make a stage for my girls and Beth’s boys. This one is Kaylee’s and Emmy’s and they all had fun playing with it. They are really easy and affordable to make so if anyone wants to know how to do it let me know.
