A Few More Presents to Open

My parents sent down a few smaller gifts and so did my grandma! 



Jay was a little excited to get a new griddle.


Check out this monster of a Tonka truck!

Hallmark books from Great Grandma Norma.

The only picture of me opening a Christmas present. Thanks Grandma!

Loading it up!


Lily quietly watched all of this commotion. :)

Merry Christmas!

Here's our Christmas in pictures!


"Choo-choo"

 I got a cake pop machine from Jay's parents for Christmas. We decided to try it out. They are delicious!



We got to Skype with my parents, Cara, and Abby today too. What a treat! We also found out what our Christmas present was from my parents!

Here is is....

.... a keyboard!
I loved playing the piano growing up and find it quite relaxing. Emma is put in almost a trance while it is being played. I can't wait to teach our little family how to play! 



A lot of Emma's Christmas presents had to do with the bath! Bath crayons, bubble bath, bath markers, and bath letters and numbers! She spent forever in the tub! 





Last, Lily tried oatmeal!

Beautiful.

Lily enjoying her new toy!
I promise I was present. I was just enjoying snapping pictures with our new camera. It was so wonderful to have Jay's parents down for Christmas. We even got to escape from the house TWO times without the kids. It was crazy with everyone doing their last minute shopping, but we enjoyed spending some quality time together. Thank you, thank you!
Merry Christmas Eve!
