As fast as Christmas came, it is now done and over with. And, it is almost 2012! Hard to believe!
The girls were really into the Santa thing this year. We did our Advent candle everyday (with a few hiccups....I'm not used to lighting a candle and blowing it out almost instantly. We might have missed burning a few days because we went through a few days in one burn. Oops!).
That really helped eliminate the question, "How many days until Christmas?". It was pretty much smooth sailing to get to the day.
Here are some of the pictures I took. I didn't really get many good ones. But, these should satisfy my mom!
The big hit item was their LeapPads. And, above, Emily was happy with the watch she got. Expectantly, each of them ripped through the presents like there was no tomorrow. That is partly why I didn't get many good ones. Next year I will probably pass on the camera and get the video recorder out.
It was a good Christmas. Next up, Bella's birthday on Saturday!
