Christmas Day

What a Christmas! There's never a dull moment when you have a two month old and two three month old twins. Christmas day was full of fun.

We started the morning off with opening presents at home. Lila got her very first bike from Mommy and Daddy.

She got some other little things as well. One of which was a toy cash register. She actually told me my credit was denied when I tried to purchase something. Where does she hear these things?

Lila loves to pretend. We got her some play food to add to her collection. She was in food heaven.

Elise decided to wake just a few minutes after we started. She was nice enough to sit in her bouncer with no protests while Lila opened presents.

Ana slept through Christmas morning, but I took a few pictures of her as soon as she awakened.
The aftermath:

Later, we headed to Gran and Poppie's house to spend the day with them and Matt and Tara. Of course, Lila had plenty of gifts to open.
Daddy and Elise hung out and watched Lila open her presents.
Lila got lots of cool stuff! She loves anything she can be creative with, and this Disney Princess drawing /painting set will get lots of use in the coming weeks.
Matt tried his hand at making Ana happy...obviously not a good time.
I took Lila to the potty while Gran and Poppie set up Lila's big gift...her castle tent. It was waiting for her to open it when we returned.

Lila had a ball in her new castle!
She even had Gran (and Daddy and Poppie) get in to play with her.

Poppie always has the magic touch with Ana.

Matt, Tara, and Xena Ward....Lila kept trying to kiss Xena throughout the day, sometimes successful, sometimes not....and Xena totally tolerated it.
Lila showing Tara and Matt something very interesting on TV...Caillou or Dora no doubt.
Lila has a new obsession in Play-Doh. She's been playing with it for quite some time, but she has only recently really taken a huge interest. Matt and Tara got her a really neat set and she had a great time playing with it with them.
Lila's 3rd Christmas and Ana and Elise's first was wonderful. People love to tell us how we have our hands full, and we do, but on days like this we are definitely reminded how much we have been blessed. We are truly grateful for our wonderful family!
