Every Christmas Eve we spend in Heber with Troy's family, and Grandma Crandell gives all the grandkids pajamas. So here's a shot of that. Now we're ready for bed and for the arrival of Santa.
Brooklyn got her bran new kitchen this year from Santa! This was her big gift, and let me tell you...she LOVES it! It even makes "bubbling" noises on the stove, and has a little phone that makes noise, too. Santa found it at Wal-Mart for a smokin' deal the day after Thanksgiving. :
) (Nevermind her crazy hair in all these. What's Christmas morning without crazy hair?)
Carter got a portable DVD player, which I didn't realize would be such a hit, but he loved it! He spent the morning in his underwear. Did I mention they got pajamas? Ya... but Carter really loves sleeping in his skivvies, so there you have it. At least they're not whitey tighties, right?
Cooper's "want" was an electronic keyboard. When I first heard that I said no way. First of all, we have a piano that I can't get him to practice ever, so why would I get a keyboard? But then I found it for another serious deal on Black Friday, and I thought...why not? Maybe this will be more exciting than the piano and he'll practice? Let me just say...it was a hit! He has played it everyday since, and absolutely loves it! Yay, me! :)
Brooklyn's next gift was a fairy dress up box because she LOVES to dress up so much!
Alright, so this was the super duper wish for the boys this year. A Nintendo DS. I told them it wasn't gonna happen. These things are very expensive, and they hardly took care of the Game Boys they got 2 years ago. However, I found the BEST deal at Game Crazy the day after Thanksgiving, and so...they got lucky! However, these are the things that needed accessories, so that's why they got more to open (games, a carrying case, etc.) But needless to say, these were a very exciting gift from "Santa"!
OK, so it's not quite as fun to open your DS after you already know what it is, but it was still a fave! :) They were both quite happy.
Accessories for the kitchen. :)
The "need" for both boys was definitely shoes, and they both had their own choices there. Cooper has really wanted Converse type shoes. I found his at Old Navy for $8.95, so I totally scored because he LOVED them! Carter, unfortunately, wanted DC's, which cost considerably more. But I made a good choice and he thought they were perfect. So both boys were happy, which, I gotta tell you, is rare!
Brooklyn also got a little Cabbage Patch baby and a Princess hideaway tent. She loved both! :)
Troy got a 16 gb Sansa MP3 player, and I got a Wii Fit! We both loved them, and thankfully for you...no pictures of our glamour in the morning!
Stay tuned for Christmas part deux!
