Since we got to sleep so late Christmas Eve we slept in a little. Marley woke up about 6 and I just laid her down next to me until about 8:30. I got up and fed her and waited for Lily to wake up. At about 9:15 I woke up Brian and figured we may as well get ready to get her up. We got the video camera and went in to wake her up. She was very bashful getting up, probably the camera in her face. We told her Santa had been here and had brought her and Marley some presents. She seemed excited. Once we got her down the hallway and out to the tree she saw her present. Santa brought her a vanity table with a mirror and stool. She was thrilled. We continued on with opening up presents from mommy and daddy. She got several new dresses with leggings (loves dresses), books, Tinkerbell movie, Max & Ruby movie, a HUGE dollhouse and lots of furniture, a Tinkerbell costume, pink fairy wings and wand, and a few other smaller items. Lily even got to open Marleys presents for her. Marley got some new tshirts, books, outfits, a Sophie the girafe teether, and a new Boppy pillow.
After she finished opening presents upstairs we went downstairs to see what Santa left in the stockings. Lily got a Snoopy nightlight, an Olivia shirt, Tinkerbell doll, toothbrushes, silverware, sunglasses, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse book, and Moon Dough. Marley got a book, rattle, and a new car seat toy.
Overall both girls made out like bandits. Mommy got a new North Face fleece, a Willow Tree figurine, and a Woodwicks candle. Daddy got a new PS3 game, lounge pants, socks, etc...
After cleaning up the presents we made Chrismas breakfast. We had eggs, pancakes, and bacon. Yummy! Then we got to relax a little before getting ready to go to Brians dads around 3.
We arrived at Papa Mikes apartment on time. We had a very nice dinner of ham, potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, rolls, corn, and sweet potatoes.
After dinner we opened presents. Of course Lily and Marley had tons of gifts. Lily got a new V-Tech camera that takes real pictures, an art easel, a Sing-a-ma-jig, and Olivia dress up trunk, outfits, shoes, colors and books, pj's, blanket, and probably more that I can't remember. Marley got some nice new outfits and toys. She even got a very special cross-stiched picture with her name and birth information on it as well as a new hand knitted Nebraska hat from Eva and Larry. Eva does such wonderful work. Thank you!!!
Marley was fairly content most of the night. She seemed to be getting a little wore out because she wasn't getting her regular naps. After I fed her I put her in her Moby wrap and carried her around. She seems to love that thing and so do I.
One more Christmas to attend Sunday at my moms...
