Random Christmas tradition question... does Santa wrap his gifts in your house? Growing up, Santa didn't wrap his gifts to us, so we had to guess which pile was ours. It was a lot of fun looking around finding your stuff that was already set up and good to go as far as playing. Then, gifts from family were wrapped. I haven't found many people who have unwrapped Santa gifts besides my family.
Santa does not wrap gifts but I took all their gifts out from under the tree and separated them into piles after the kids went to bed on Christmas Eve (If you notice on the pic of the kids walking out on Christmas morning, under the tree is empty lol) and I put their Santa gift right in front of their piles. With the closeness in age, I wanted there to be NO confusion as to who got what! haha Santa was kind of cheap this year anyway for their big gifts... he brought board games for Kass, Kam & Kenn, a Brobee pillow for Keeghan and the music table for Kellsey... all the good stuff was either wrapped (from us) or in their stockings which Santa got credit for. LOL
Do you use a particular paper for each child....does that make sense? Like tinkerbell for one spongebob for another etc?
Yes, we do this every year! It makes it SO much easier on Christmas morning. This year Kassidy got Littlest Pet Shop, Kameron got Spongebob, Kennedy got Tinkerbelle, Keeghan got Cars and Kellsey got Dora. No reading name tags to slow anyone down! LOL
We have similar music boxes at the shop and we will ship them. We're actually getting ready to do a reorder pretty soon and I'll update the blog as soon as we do.
This came from my friend Ashley of Ashley's Attic. Go check out her blog for lots of GREAT stuff!!!
A great picture. Merry Christmas. Are those the Christmas PJ's from your grandma?
Yep! I picked them out though! ;)
Is this a first that the pic isn't on the stairs?? As I recall, all of your pictures are on the stairs! Merry Christmas to you too!!
Actually, at my house, they're usually always on our couch... at my mom's they're usually on the stairs. Sometimes they're on the stairs at my house too... but mostly it's the couch. LOL This time they were in the middle of the living room floor because that's where they were sitting when they opened their jammies and put them on! :)
RENEE!! I forgot to email you yesterday at work. We got them yesterday!!!! They were very nice-- someone will really enjoy them~ THANK YOU for thinking for us :)
YAY! I'm so glad they got there! I hope the kids enjoy them!
Wow! That's GREAT! Didn't they give you any toys for your tots???
Nope, but it wasn't about that! :) Our kids were covered!
Good for you ! Did you ever hear anything back from them ?
Nah, I seriously doubt I will... but I hope somewhere along the line, someone stubles across it who can change something! GRR Sounds like there ARE a lot of malls out there who have the right idea! :)
And where in the world did you find jammies for ALL of you that match....AND with your names on them....so, so cool!
Disneystore.com! You can also find matching jammies for the whole family at Children's Place. :)
Oh.My.Gosh. Those matching jammies are so flippin' cute! Do you and Frank also have a pair? ;)
Yes, we do! LOL
Now where is Frank and your matching PJ pictures? LOL
Yeah yeah I know! We were behind the camera! LOL
what a beautiful picture!!!
What a great christmas!!
Now you need a boy to even it up :)
Hush now, you'll give my mom a heart attack! LOL
no picture of the finished product??!!
Uhhh, I'm a dork! I didn't think about that! LOL But we didn't frost the cake till the next day anyway.
Kellsey already looks like she fits right in! How are the little ones doing with the new addition?
They are doing great! Kennedy loves her to death... though we have to tell her to stop petting her! LOL Kellsey is like her little doll! LOL Keeghan and Kellsey love to play together, but they also can fight like... well... brother and sister! haha He loves her a lot though! :)
Renee I'm sorry to tell you but looking at these pictures of Keeghan hanging ornaments on the tree doesn't look like you have a baby in the house anymore. I can't get over how mature he has gotten in the last few months.
I know. *sniff* He tells me almost every day what a BIG boy he is. I can't convince him otherwise. LOL
I love the pictures, but had to share, my daughter, whose name is Kassidy, also received the knot quilt!! How ironic is that!?
LOL! How funny!!! Kassidy hasn't made hers yet, but I'm hoping it will be fun and easy for her!
My friend's daughter got the SpongeBob Connect Four game for her birthday and the rules have changed from the orignal game. Are the rules for SP Operation the same as the classic game?
TOTALLY different rules! We played it with Kass and Kam on Christmas night and Frank and I were both saying how different it was, AND it's a LOT easier. The room to get the little pieces out is huge so we really didn't make Spongebob light up all that much.
