|She was so proud of the finished product and her Mama (who's a little biased) thinks she did a great job too!|
After naps Gin-g, Fred, Blake, and Emily came for Christmas Part 2. We all got some really great gifts and of course the girls were spoiled rotten for the second day in a row! Our families know exactly what these little girls like.
Ellie was so taken by her Ugly Duckling book. What's really funny is that Emmie has a CD with a song on it about the Ugly Duckling so she gave Ellie a quick synopsis of the story.
Among other princess things, Emmie got some princess gloves from Emily and Blake and she's quite obsessed!
There are two favorite presents in this picture (along with the little ride on car also known as the worst present ever...thanks Abby and Ben...yours is coming in February!). Anywho, back to the GOOD presents that don't make noise...Emily and Blake got these adorable tailgate chairs for the girls. They are AWESOME and the girls were thrilled! Ellie sat in hers the rest of the day! Also Emily and Blake got Ellie the baby doll outfit. I was quite happy to get the present as well because this poor baby doll came with a robe but spends most of the time naked...we're all glad she has clothes now! Ellie is obsessed with that little outfit (and the baby doll is probably pretty glad to have it as well)!
Gin-g and Fred got the girls wooden baby doll highchairs and one of their friends painted their names on the chairs. The chairs are BEAUTIFUL and the girls have spend a lot of time feeding their babies!
I didn't get a good picture of the actual present but I just have to tell you about it because I think it's great! Gin-g and Fred gave this Santa to Emily and Blake and we also have one that we got right before we got married. The Santa is holding different items that represent things about Emily and Blake. (It has some Summerville stuff, Clemson tickets, and a figurine that looks like Emily's dog among other things.) When we get ours out every Christmas, Paul and I always look over it and find all the things that tell our "story"!
Emmie helping Papa put together one of my favorite presents that the girls got...a toy organizer! Emmie was so proud that she helped Papa put it together!
Emily and Ellie
LOVE the toy organizer!!!!! You can also kind of see the puzzle rack beside it which I was really excited about as well. The girls have done a pretty good job putting their toys back in the right bucket and hopefully we can keep it up after the holidays but even if they end up in the wrong bucket at least their off the floor!
