I'm so glad my kids haven't hit the phase where they get up early for Santa! Ugh. I remember my brother and I used to get up at 3:30, 4:00, 4:30. The only reason my dad put up with that, was because he was just as excited! :)
I read somewhere this year that you should stand next to your tree to get the best shot of your kids. Obviously! But for some reason I never thought of this before.
|Santa always leaves Erie a gift to open. She's 6 so she's a pro at opening.|
|A Barbie was the only thing Maris asked for from Santa. And a Barbie, she received.|
|But she got a fun chair too!|
Sometimes the best gifts are accidents or afterthoughts. "Santa" got this for 75% after Halloween at Target and she LOVES it.
|Hey, look who decided to get up!|
|"and potatoes? I shoulda stayed in bed!"|
|Santa could have saved his money and just gotten wrapping paper for this one.|
We should nickname Maris, The Vault. This girl keeps a secret like it's her job! She picked this book out for Johnny in early November. She was very intent on keeping it a secret too!
|The Vault presents her secret.|
|All done! They kind of look like the need to go back to bed!|
