Christmas this year seemed to come and go in a flash. It didn't even seem like Christmas this year to us because it has been sunny, nice temperatures and NO snow. Nevertheless, it was Christmas and Santa did deliver.
Miss Molly was hoping and hoping for red Tom shoes.
She was completely delighted to get them!
She was also hap hap happy to get a new American Girl doll.
And the Lalaloopsy Tree House she wanted.
Four years ago I bought some Hot Wheels cars for one of Jens' birthday party's. One of them looked like a shark car. Cade wanted that car sooo bad but I had only bought just enough cars for Jensy's friends. Cade has never forgotten that "shark" car and we have looked and looked and looked in every store every time we went shopping. We have never been able to find one. Finally Caden just decided to have Santa make one so he FINALLY got a shark car. He was so happy!!!
He saved one of his best presents for last, a Red Rider BB Gun. He is so happy and feels like a big kid with his new gun.
Like Molly, Sidney also wanted red Tom's so desperately. But sadly Santa couldn't find red ones in her size anywhere. So she ended up with turquoise ones instead. She liked them just as much.
She got her own Ed Hardy perfume.
(Now hopefully she will leave MY Ed Hardy perfume alone)
Toward the end of the kids opening their presents everyone heard some weird ringing sound coming from Sidney's stocking.........
It was a new cell phone!
She was so happy that she started to cry.
Which made me cry too.
Jens got the XBox that he wanted.
And the Skull Candy Skull Crusher headphones that he wanted.
After everyone had finished opening their presents I had them all sit down while Jeff went upstairs for one last present.
This cute little cocker spaniel came to live with my two boys who have asked for a puppy for several years. I am NOT a dog lover, but I finally gave in and let them have one. They were so happy to finally get a dog!!!! Jens gets up in the night with him to let him out to potty and the boys take care of all the feedings and walking. Even though they are the ones taking care of him I am still not completely on board with the whole dog thing. Hopefully I will warm up to the idea soon!
