Now, the normal things that did take place was our Elf on the Shelf was finally named........................ Bono! Holland really got in to having Bono this year. Every morning she would rush into the living room to see where he was. We watched the Elf on the Shelf cartoon umpteen times. We had our family advent calendar that Holland loved getting to do every morning. She would say, "we're getting close to Jesus's birthday!" Our little family had our traditional gift opening Christmas morning then went to Mom's for brunch and gifts.
Christmas Eve before bed.
Santa brought Britton the little Tikes car and Holland the Disney Princess Castle with Princesses. Both girls LOVED their gifts!
Britton and Holland enjoyed opening their gifts.
We got the girls a trampoline, but unfortunately, it was lightly raining Christmas morning so they didn't get to jump.
After gifts at our house, we headed over to Mom's. The girls got a lot of clothes and some toys. Holland especially loved her easel and LeapPad. Holland has played with the LeapPad so much that I've already had to change out the batteries. Britton loved dancing and singing while we all played Xbox dance games.
The rest of Christmas was spent relaxing at the house, going to visit Mommer in the hospital, and playing with all our new toys. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
