Christmas Morning: The Dress Rehearsal

Good evening!  Everyone have a good Christmas?  Oh wait – WE had Christmas today.  You didn’t?  It was our run-through before we leave for Grandma and Gpa H’s house this week.  Had to get some of the bigger items out of the way cuz there is no way they are coming with us!  Anyway, the dress rehearsal went off without a hitch.  Everyone remembered their lines.  Wink 

But first, this was yesterday I think.  They are always wanting me to take their picture sitting there.  I can’t say no!  How cute are they?! DSC_3148 DSC_3149

Things always take a turn for the worse when he starts pestering her. DSC_3153

Up to no good, I’m quite sure. DSC_3158

See – he’s totally plotting something. DSC_3160


Ok, back on task.  Christmas morning – the Dress Rehearsal.  We started out with some pancakes.  A request was made for snowman and tree shaped pancakes.  Those turned out lovely.  Thinking DSC_3167

Dylan yelled at me for giving him two pancakes (his usual).  There was NO TIME to eat TWO pancakes! We had presents to open!!! DSC_3170 DSC_3175

Mux – never misses a chance to eat wrapping paper.   DSC_3179“Holy smokes!  An air hockey table!” DSC_3180

Avery was hard at work in the corner on her new phone.  Who cares about air hockey?! We’ve got calls to make! DSC_3182 DSC_3189 DSC_3198

Millscat watched from up on the fridge.  Her little head moving back and forth following the puck. DSC_3210 DSC_3216 DSC_3222

Milly even got presents!  Can you believe it?!  Avery was more than happy to make sure that Milly got what was hers.  She kept shoving the 3 fish into her face over and over again.  “MILLY!”  “MILLY!”  “MILLY!”   DSC_3223 DSC_3226

I hate McDonalds, but the kid I love loves McDonalds, so what are ya gonna do?   DSC_3227

“Holy smokes!  My trampoline!” DSC_3263

This was the only thing Dylan wanted this year.  Guess who got what he wanted?! DSC_3265 DSC_3266

A kitchen!   DSC_3284

Avery says, “wait…what’s missing here? The doors to this thing?  The pots and pans? The faucet? Over half the stuff that was SUPPOSED to be in here?  My hairstyle? What?!” Yeah, it came with 3/4 of the stuff missing.  Some sort of “big error at our warehouse.”  Well, thanks for letting us know, Little Tikes!  Angry  It had only been sitting in our garage for a month!  We could have had the replacement parts by now had we known that WE were supposed to be doing THEIR quality control.  Can you tell I’m mad!?DSC_3289

And finally, I finished my holiday baking!  Phew! What a relief!  Today I made these pretty babies: DSC_3291
