Christmas Recap 3 - Christmas Day

First of all I would like to mention, how cute did our Christmas plate turn out! I bought a plate from target and porcelain markers from hobby lobby and made our new cookies and milk plate for Santa from the McLaughlin's! Nice job mom! :) 

Christmas morning, everyone came over and we waited for D to wake up. She came running out of her room thrilled that Santa had come. I think she was most fascinated that Santa had eaten the cookies and milk and she didn't. Then she saw the dress up box with made for her and she was in heaven! She literally would try on a dress, we would try to get her to focus and open a present, she would, and then she would go try on another dress. This happened all morning long! 

 Once she finished with presents, I told her Santa had one more big gift for her, but she would have to do a scavenger hunt to find the present. She did awesome! (I included pictures so she knew what I was talking about. ex. this is where you go potty) She would run right to the toilet and find the next clue. The scavenger hunt lead to a bounce house in the garage and she was ecstatic! We will be getting lots of good use out of this!

I even was able to surprise Dave with a new pressure washer which was fun, bc he had no idea what I was getting him.

Here is a picture of the dress up box set up in her room with all her princess dresses.
 After breakfast and playing with our new toys for quite some time, we headed to Gammoe and Dodaddy's house to open gifts from them. Emily got her a light up Elsa dress which could have been her favorite present of the year. She racked up with tons of things from them and then we did a prime rib dinner that afternoon. We were exhausted by the end of the day, but it was so much fun. I can't believe this is our last Christmas as a family of 3. (Santa brought Blakely a few toys too since we already consider her part of the family) The years to come are just going to get better and better!
