Miss Lila got her first baby doll.
Jackson got lots of really fun things from Santa. Here he is showing off his Nature Explorer set and Popper Gun--both really big hits.
He wore the vest pretty much all day. He's sitting next to the milk and cookies that we left out for Santa. We left 4 cookies and they were almost all eaten. J wanted to know why he didn't eat them all. After we looked at all the presents that Santa brought, Gigi, Boom, Maddie and Meme came over for brunch.
Madison got three new pairs of dress up shoes and she insisted on bringing them all over. Here she is modeling the pink furry ones. Love it.
After brunch Lila chatted with Meme while the rest of us began opening presents.
Meme's present from the kids was this fun fleece blanket with their picture on it. She loved it and I'm so glad. Thanks, kodak:)
Lila got another baby doll, but the real highlight was getting to taste out the wrapping paper.
Jackson got this super cool fireman set. He played with it and his new trash truck that Santa brought for a big part of the day. The boy does love trash day!
Madison loved her new dolls and made sure they were all dressed properly...then she put them down for a nap in the dining room.
Since Madison will tell you herself that she is a princess, I thought it only fitting that we get her some fun dress-up clothes. Gigi's modeling the feather boa and Maddie's holding the tutu and wearing her princess watch.
Jackson's big present from Gigi and Boom was this way cool bicycle! After a few spins around our house, he was ready to go outside. He amazed me and did so good on it!
After my fam left, Jared and I baked a cake. Then it was off to Memaw and Poppi's house for some more celebrating. Right when we got there Poppi told Jackson there was something waiting for him in the backyard. Imagine the look on his face when he looked out there and saw this soccer goal. He ran outside and jumped right on into a game with his dad and uncles. Cowboy boots and all!
It was a little chilly outside, so Lila prefered to stay indoors and hang out with Uncle Scott and Lyndsie. After dinner it was present time again.
Baby dolls are nice and wrapping paper sounds fun, but chewing on the box is where the real action is at.
Lila loved this box and the green tissue paper in her next gift.
Jackson had fun trying out his new TCU football from Pa Hays.
And this lego headband flashlight came in handy while opening more gifts, too.
