We got a letter from Santa (it was in our fireplace) that said he was coming early so that Dominic would have time to play with his toys before he left for Alaska. Santa is so cool.
Sidenote: we were the first house he visited this year and the first cookies he's tasted since last Christmas. How's that for awesome?
I snuck downstairs to see if I could catch him in the act, but he'd already come! He's so quick.
Christmas morning was full of great presents for the kiddos. We had so much fun opening all the presents and making a big mess with wrapping paper! We immediately put stuff together to start playing.
Penny's shopping cart needed assembly:
Dominic's racecar track needed assembly (remember the one Sam and Nephi got the year Jon was on his mission?) That thing was well loved and Santa must have known that Dominic would love one too.
Santa also knows our Penny very well and how much she loves to paint and draw. She was all smiles to get this out and paint.
Who wouldn't want to paint in their birthday suit?
On the back other side of the easel (which also has a white erase board underneath where she paints) is a chalkboard. Erasing what you draw is lots of fun too!
More pictures to come. Thanks Santa and everyone else who sent presents to open. Each present is getting its own turn throughout the day and getting well loved.
Merry Christmas everyone!
