We got up around 6:30 or 7 and got the girls up to open presents. They were both kind of excited, but for different reasons. Auralee knew that presents were coming, so she was ready to go, but Taryn was ready for breakfast. The only way we could get her to turn around and go into the living room was to give her a doughnut to munch on. It worked and we got right to it. I don't know who was more excited, me or the girls.
Some friends of ours gave us their old tree, and I loved decorating it with the ornamants Ive been gathering over the past few years. I hope to refine it in the future. Every year we get a new family ornament for our tree that has some meaning for our family. I love it and have lots of fun picking it out with the kids.
After they did the presents Santa left for them and opened their stockings, we opened presents.
Everyone got some really nice presents and enjoyed everything they got. Luc knew I needed some storage for my scrap booking stuff so he got me a great drawer for a lot of it. He had been wanting a football, so I looked around and found a really good one. The girls got some nice toys and a couple great outfits. My sister made me some really great decorative plates and got me a beautiful rack to hang them on.
After a nice breakfast, we went to grandma Engstrom's house where we got to open more presents. It was all a lot of fun and we all had a great day.
