We experienced our first year of "very early wake-up" on Christmas morning.
It was still dark out. Matt and I were startled awake by shrills from upstairs.
Matt's response was "they need to back back to bed for a while." While, remembering back to the many years my brother and I woke my parents before daylight, I responded with, "it's Christmas, they are excited, let's let them open presents!"
The beauties and I outranked Daddy, and the gift opening was on!
Farrah was very excited about her giraffe socks.
Jocelyn of course sporting penguins.
Silvie in her cheetahs.
Chloe smiling in her giraffes.
Silvie took so much time and caution opening each of her gifts. She savored ever moment. Studying, admiring and loving her presents.
Santa brought each of the Beauties new ice skates! The triplets cannot wait to skate like their big sissy.
Farrah with her Farrah Fawcett barbie.
The Kaya doll....oh how badly she wanted this doll.
Chloe and Silvie showing off the gifts they picked out for each other.
Chloe and Farrah showing off their gifts for each other.
Chloe wanting to pose with Jocey, she wasn't in the the camera...
Daddy's holiday tie...it sings Jingle Bells.
The Beauties picked it out for him at the Dollar Store. Priceless.
After the gifts were open...somehow, Daddy talked them into going back to bed before we headed out to Grammy and Poppy's. They actually slept for almost 2 hours. I was amazed...and thankful for the nap.
