Christmas Morning - 2012

This is how Santa left our living room late Christmas Eve... the display was sure to please the girls. 

 Our Christmas morning started a bit early. To ensure that both Tony and I were up before the girls, I had set our alarm for 6:30 am giving me enough time to help Tony up out of bed. Well we estimated the girls wake up time to be a bit earlier than it actually was, which turned out to be an unexpected gift. Tony and I got enjoy watching the sunrise together on Christmas day while we drank our coffee and waited for the munchkins to wake up. In our situation mornings alone together are a rarity, so it was so nice to take a moment, on Christmas no less, to enjoy it.

The girls are up and the fun is ready to begin!
Our Christmas Morning lasted a long time - no complaining here. It took a while because the girls simply wanted to play with and enjoy each gift as they opened it. 
They went straight for their baby doll stuff. 
The strollers with car seats,  baby swing and a baby holder, perfect for playing nursery. 

 Star Wars BOOKS!!!

 We all got Slippers this year! Ellie and Lola got YODA slippers and I got some Roxy slips

Ellie helped daddy open some of his gifts.

 ...the mess at the end of Christmas morning...LOVE IT!
Thanks all for the fantastic gifts! 
The girls sure got spoiled by their grandparents, Great grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends.
After some traditional cinnamon rolls for breakfast we headed out to put their new present to good use. 
After two minutes they were pros on these Razor Scooters. 

It was a perfect Christmas morning! 
I absolutely love living these moments through the eyes of Lola and Ellie, so magical!
