Here are the 3 little Loops in their Christmas jammies. They got to open them on Christmas Eve.
I took this picture of the tree on Christmas morning, before the festivities began. The mass of presents was overwhelming the room. Santa sets his presents out in the open for each child to see. So far this hasn't posed any problems, but I can see this might in the future.... Maren got the princess doll house and Teagan got the American Girl Doll. Declan is in the clear with Lego's.
I actually took this picture of Teagan with her doll in matching dresses after the presents were all opened, so they are a little out of order. I'm artistic like that. In the foreground you see Declan, with his Legos and Maren is playing with her presents while wearing her new Ariel mermaid dress up.
This is when Declan first walked into the room and saw his Lego Pirates of the Caribbean Black Pearl ship. He was thrilled. And to think he doesn't believe!
Maren got princesses for the dollhouse. If it's princess, it's all good in her book!
Nellie (left) and Jack (right) heard that Santa has reindeer. They had to keep an eye out in the event that Santa made the mistake of landing them in our yard. They are both really good at chasing deer of all kinds.
Declan in in Lego fortress of happiness.
Turns out that watching for deer is exhausting. It's always good when you have a pillow to rest your weary head upon.
After Christmas we decided to get a new car. We'd had Tallulah the VW Passat for almost 12 years and she was getting tired. We sold her and got a new shiney pretty zippy car. I'll post a picture of "Lily White" tomorrow!
Thanks for coming by!
