We actually cheated a little this year and celebrated Christmas Eve a little early at our house. We wanted to be able to spend "Christmas Day" playing and being together, instead of traveling to different Christmases. We knew Addison would want to enjoy her toys this year!
As posted earlier, Addison has been terrified of Santa for a couple of years now. She came with me to work on Wednesday, and this sweet Santa was able to coax her into his lap! She stood next to him at first and said "I want a Barbie house please!"
She loved her FurReal kitty. She named it Sarah!
I got a deviled egg server I had on my wish list. I was impressed that Grant got this, and then he brought in my other gift- UGGs! I didn't get a picture, but I was thrilled. We were suppose to do only little gifts because we bought a new KING bed, but I gladly accepted them and they are awesome!
I got Grant a shirt, and felt guilty after opening my UGGs. I then remembered he had just bought himself a PS3 so I didn't feel as bad!
After gifts, we started getting ready for Santa!
We baked cookies, put on Christmas gown, and put Santa's cookies by the fireplace!
Since we don't have a chimney, we put a key out so Santa could come in. (Thanks Aunt Anna and Kane for this a couple of years ago!)
