Christmas 2009

Here are the photos from Christmas Eve and Christmas day. I think it's safe to say it was a whopping success.

On Christmas Eve, Emmylou stayed up to put out cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for Rudolph. She and I had made Christmas cookies a few days before and I let her sneak a tiara cookie cutter in with the snowflakes and candy canes. She definitely wanted Santa to have one of those.
She also had to give Birdie a kiss goodbye since his work was finished and he'd be hitching a ride back to the North Pole on Santa's sleigh.
Christmas morning: Look at all that loot!
Miller was half-asleep but liked his little car more than it appears in this picture.
Princess Emmylou was thrilled with her castle.

Grammie, Emmy and Mimi came over bright and early to watch the kids open their presents.
Yes, this is Emmylou's, but if it's got wheels, Miller wants it.

We hope your Christmas was just as fun!

Where'd you get that pop-up castle? Are you happy with it so far?

Bethany- Santa got it from Amazon. It's the Sweet Lily Castle (or something like that). Emmylou LOVES it and it is really high quality. It was around $120 but also came with the dress, tiara, etc. There are lots of photos and positive reviews of it on Amazon.

I hate having more princess crap in the house but at least it's a good one. And the look on E's face was worth it. :)

Yeah, we've given up the fight on the princess crap.
