Christmas Eve celebration

Our family was VERY good to us this year, and we had an awesome family gift exchange on Christmas Eve! We helped Mommy & Daddy get out all the presents the night before, and we did such a good job, that they let us each open ONE present early!

Of course, Abby was the first to give her gift this year (she’s always the most excited to see people open her presents), and her gift to Emily did not disappoint!

There’s that sister love we see each year!

Emily picked out special earrings for Abby at the school fair this year, and she loved them!

Emily also gave Ben his favorite gift… a construction truck/train set for around the Christmas tree… He LOVED it!

Daddy loved his Shutterfly calendar of kid quotes this year…

This quote of Abby’s is Mommy’s favorite…

Christmas Eve morning, before opening gifts, we gave Mommy the best one of all by smiling for a group picture, and it only took ONE TRY!!!

23

Ben was excited for Emily to open his gift, and by the look on her face, it became one of the top contenders for the “gift of the year”…

What 5-year-old girl wouldn’t want their own Anna & Elsa dolls?!?!?

Abby loved the American Girl books that Emily picked out for her to read.

However, Abby’s gift of the year was the ONE thing she asked for… her own dark-haired Baby Alive doll that you can feed, and it peeps & poops!

She got right to changing her diaper and feeding her!

She ran out of diapers quickly, and figured out a great way to keep her from making a mess…
