Christmas in Pictures

Our day started at 1:45 a.m. when Kate woke everyone up to open presents. NOT. She and her gang were promptly sent to bed and told to try again at 7 a.m.
Admiring the stockings started at 6:45 a.m. Present opening, at 7 a.m. Finished, 7:57 a.m.

Santa scored big with the American Dolls

Nothing like a sweet silver tie to ring in the New Year!

Christmas Eve: Brynn said she didn't like her new pajamas she LOVED them!
Currently: Brandon is working on a 300-piece puzzle of Hannah Montana (Kate gave up a long time ago)
Kate and Adrie are playing with Barbie soccer mom and pals
Brynn is brushing Julie doll's long magnificent blonde mane.
Cannon is eating wrapping paper and other choking hazards.
I am going to get out of my p.j.'s so I can get ready for Christmas dinner at the neighbor's. We'll see how we like roast duck a-l'orange.

Good job stretching out the present opening for 57 minutes. It takes Ethan about 2 seconds tops to rip into a gift and he doesn't even know what it is before he would open the next.
Looks like a fun day. Hope the gourmet duck topped it off!

Looks like a lot of fun! Your room looked clean and Christmasy.
Glad the AG Dolls were a hit. Our OG dolls were too, though if I'd known they'd be such a hit for A (who doesn't really play dolls much) I would have cut out 1 or 2 other gifts. Oh well! Merry Christmas!

duck a-l'orange sounds like a very fancy meal... we stayed in our PJs and ate turkey... very late since it just would not cook :)

I think the kids tore through all their presents in less than 20 minutes...

5 weeks shopping, 5 hours wrapping, 20 minutes opening... they'd better enjoy them for months to come :)

I loved the pictures and I am impressed that you did a Joseph Smith party. You are such a fun mom. I have no idea how long it took us to open presents -- but they did get opened and enjoyed which is good.
