Christmas Day

Christmas morning started early! So early that I can't even say it was bright and early because it was still dark outside. The girls woke up around 6am. They came to inspect the tree and stockings and then woke us up.
Winsty got up and put on his holiday attire to get ready for his stocking.
Man it sure feels early and cold out. We need some coffee before we can tear into gifts.
Christmas is definitely a day to have whipped cream on your coffee. I think Gemma would agree.
Once the stockings were opened you can see the sun was starting to rise. We opened gifts from Santa first.
Lily's note included a letter from Santa to explain her gift a bit.
Lily got two lego sets that she has been really wanting that are no longer being manufactured. Gemma got the roller blades and hula hoop she has been wanting.
Then they wanted Dad to open his gift from them. They got him a London architecture lego set.
Winsty got lots of treats and a new stuffed squirrel in his stocking. He also got a dog bed warmer that plugs in to keep his blankets extra cozy. He HATES it. He won't even sit on the blankets if its under there.

Lily got cozy dragon mittens from Joel and Tonya and a kitty hat and scarf from us.
Once all the gifts under the tree had been opened we had to go outside to try out the roller blades. She is a natural of course.
We settled in to watch the Queen's speech while Lily worked on her lego sets.
I got this fun letter board sign from Kristen. I used it to write out our mutual fave saying.
We took a break after Goppy arrived to sit down to breakfast. Our tradition egg potato bake and fruit plus Jesus birthday coffee cake!

Lily worked hard until her two new lego sets were completed. Then her new dragons got to  meet all her other dragons. I think they are all happy to be together.
Gemma got a hairstyle book and a hair dryer brush so we tried out a new style. The fishtail. Not too bad.
The ladies shared a archery set. It was pretty fun. It suction cups onto the window.
Since the girls do archery at girl scout camp they knew what to do.
After a long afternoon relaxing and Dad busy in the kitchen preparing dinner we sat down to stuffed pork roast and potatoes and veg.  It was a great Christmas!
