One thing the girls did want was a new American Girl doll. Thank goodness the grandparents came through! Macie already had Molly, but she and her best friend Emily were being retired this year. So my mom got Emily for Macie and Josefina for Ella. Ella also wanted the girl of the year, Saige, because Ella said she was "just like her!" Nonny (James's mom) got Saige for Ella and Kit, whom Macie had already she decided she wanted before knowing Emily was going away, for Macie. They also got MANY accessories for each doll. So we now have 6 American Girls living in our house...I think that is PLENTY!
Here are a few pics from our Christmas morning. Unfortunately, about half of our boxes from the States were VERY late thanks to the mail system this year. So I missed out on being here for the girls to open stuff from the other SS class and from my mom, dad and another box from Nonny. So I don't have these pics since I was in the States when they showed up. But the girls had a great time opening without me.
|One of their gifts is always Christmas pjs. We spent Christmas Eve with our friends, the Meads so we gave Kayla a pair also.|
We had a wonderful Christmas time this year but are very ready to celebrate with our family back in the States in 2014!!! Thank you to everyone who gave us amazing gifts and loved on our family this year. :)
