Christmas Morning

Christmas morning was so much fun this year!  Ellie's excitement made the late night driving and "assembly" worth it all.  We didn't get to set out cookies or spread reindeer food like I had hoped, but I made sure to at least put our cookies out so she could see it had been done.  She was OUT by the time we got home from Memphis and I was not about to wake her up to do it.  There's always next year!

 Ellie's stash.  She got Caroline the American Girl doll, a Barbie Jeep, a Melissa and Doug dress up ballerina, some Barbie's, paint your own tea set, Cinderella and Carriage, and a Pottery Barn iron/ironing board.  We also set out all of the handmade AG doll clothes that Granny made for my AG doll, Molly.  They are amazing!  So glad we could pass them down for Ellie to enjoy.

She couldn't believe Santa ate most of the cookies!

The first look...what an excited face!

Checking it all out

She loved her jeep, but we've still got some work to do on the steering:)

This girl LOVES the Wizard of Oz.  It still shocks me how much she loves it.  So Santa put the DVD in her stocking along with tons of stickers, suckers, PEZ, crafting jewels, puppet making sets and more.

Tired mommy with my pretty, happy girl.

We had a yummy breakfast of cheese grits casserole, sausage squares and fresh fruit.

Little Picasso doing some painting.

Ellie and Caroline in their night gowns.  Granny made the doll gown!

They worked puzzles all morning.

Here is a little bit of video from our morning.  She was so excited!!  Please excuse my loud , tired voice.

It was a fun morning at home full of playing.  We soon had to get ready for all 30+ Blackman's to head over to our house for more fun.  It was a full day!
