The Big Ones

The girls always get lots of "little gifts" and one "big one". So, here are the photos of the "big ones" before the girls got hold of them. This was, oh, say about 5 a.m. that these photos were taken - that's when Daddy finished putting them together.

Mallory didn't tell us for sure about a big gift from us for her until Monday, Dec. 22. I couldn't find it anywhere so I had to order it. By the next time she's here, it will be waiting on her. It actually is scheduled to be here according to the website on Tuesday, December 30. She asked for the complete set of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. Daddy made her a "mini-book" as you will see in later pics and posting.

Julia Grace received a Little Tikes Cook 'n' Learn kitchen. I think I had mentioned previously that she was getting that. She has been carrying around the foods and banging on pots and pans. I caught her pretending to wash dishes yesterday! So sweet!

I will have to post more photos later of actual Christmas Day with the girls and Christmas Day evening dinner/ gifts at Granny's house. We actually will be seeing more friends and family for gift exchanges and a birthday dinner for Jennifer today. Tomorrow, we're travelling to Red Springs, NC for Christmas with my aunt and grandmother, Grandma, or as it appears Julia Grace will call her, Gigi. :) You know, as in G.G. - Great-Grandma. We also still have to schedule Christmas time with Dan & Angie - so as you can see, we're nowhere done with Christmas here!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Happy Birthday Jesus! :)
