The day after...

The day after Christmas! We had a fantastic day - the girls were very happy and excited with all their gifts, spending time with family was great and dinner was to die for!

Hailey ended the evening with a fever 101.5 and Lauren ended it building snap circuits (more later) - but they both truly had wonderful days!

I want to take some time and really go through all my pictures before I do a "real" Christmas re-cap post but I thought I would take few quiet minutes to post a few from Christmas eve for anxious family and friends to view!

We always open some gifts from Grandma Mary, Aunt Lisa and Uncle Rich on Christmas Eve. It gives the kids something to do and takes the edge off a bit! It is super fun and we get to enjoy watching the girls slowly open the gifts, rather than watching them tear through them Christmas Morning!!!

UNO Flash from Grandma Mary...I am certain we are going to have a lot of loud, laughing fun with this modern day version of a favorite card game!
The Camera...From Grandma Mary too...Hailey wants to take pictures and now she can do it without my stomach lurching as I hand her my camera! She loves it and taken tons of pictures already!
And the Scooters - one for each from Aunt Lisa and Uncle Rich! We took them out used them a bit on Christmas Eve the girls were pretty stinkin excited about these....They are going to be scooting around the neighborhood all summer!

More to come!!!
