Merry Christmas!

Christmas this year was so much fun! It's one of those times that having young children is really awesome. I was so excited for Christmas this year. Emmy made sure to put out cookies for Santa and carrots for Rudolf.

On Christmas Eve we went to Matt's parents' house and had some yummy Chinese food and opened lots of presents! The kids were so cute and so excited about every present. Zach actually opened presents for the first time in his life! (He hasn't really been too interested before and Emmy has opened all of his before.) But he was excited about it this time and it was fun to watch.

Here was the scene the kids got to see on Christmas morning.

Zach got a candy cane full of M&Ms in his stocking and was not interested in anything else the rest of the day. He carried around his candy cane and just kept eating those M&Ms all morning.

Emmy was so excited to open her presents and look in her (and everyone else's stockings). She was so cute about every present. She would gasp in excitement and exclaim what the present was. Even for boring things like a toothbrush and underwear!

I loved it so much! In fact, I actually woke up on Christmas morning about 5:30 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep because I was so excited. Emmy finally came in at 6:45. (The one chance I had to sleep til nearly 7 and I just couldn't!)

All Emmy really asked for was a real kitty. Well, I was not about to get her a real kitty, but I did find this cute stuffed one that purrs and pounces and plays with a little toy and stuff. Emmy was beyond excited about her kitty.

She also got a lot of dress ups (that I got on clearance the day after Halloween!)

Zach just eating more candy!

Then on Christmas Day after opening presents, playing with them, and playing in the snow, we went to my parents' house for the rest of the day.

We had such a fun Christmas! And the kids were so spoiled by their grandparents and Santa! Thank you so much everyone for a wonderful Christmas.
