The Rest…

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I sure did.  I know I’ve fallen behind with posting my girls’ 24-day-of-Christmas gifts.  Here are the things they received starting from day 4.  To see anything before day 4, just scroll through the blog.

The girls enjoyed the gifts that required putting together like the cards and angels.  They want to do more crafty things.  They also liked their dresses.

Day 3

This morning the girls woke up asking, “When do we get our gifts?”  Yesterday, Kida said, “Mom, are you going to do this every year?”

“Maybe.” I said.

“Why didn’t you do it last year?”

“Because I just thought of it this year but if you don’t like it, I won’t do it next year.”

“No!  I like it!  I like it!”  She screamed in glee.

After opening their gifts, they wanted to share funny faces.

I wanted to take some photos of their gifts outside in the snow so I went out and Kylie followed.  After I uploaded the photos, I asked Kylie to tell me the story behind the photos.  This is her story:


(Santa speaks first)

The End. 🙂

Title and story by Kylie.

Day 2

Look at how excited they were!!

Kylie said, “Is it from Santa?”  I said, “Yep!”  No point in arguing with her.

After Kida opened hers, she helped her sister.  They were super excited, except I accidentally gave Kylie the gift with the red M&M instead of green.  I knew she liked only the green one and thought I made sure I gave the girls the right one but I didn’t so Kylie was bummed.  She wanted the green one really REALLY bad.  Luckily, the outside didn’t matter to Kida so she exchanged with Kylie and everything worked out.

The time it took from opening the gifts to eating it all: 2 minutes.  Not really, but it sure felt like it because I didn’t see them eat it.  It was as if they swallowed the candy in one gulp.

Before they ate their candy, they wanted to show me some tricks.

Kida showed me how fast she could twirl her ponytail.

Kylie showed me how fast she could twirl her arm.  She said, “I don’t have a ponytail but I can spin my arm.  It’s like a helicopter.”
