Stockings, Presents & More....OH MY!!

First off, the stockings! Kevin and I have a tradition of going to the dollar store, wandering through the aisles together pointing out things we each would like, then splitting up and using our $10 limit for each other, picking things out to surprise the other person. It's always been a lot of fun. But now that Alexa's old enough to know what's going on at Christmas, we had to tweak things a bit...we still went to the dollar store...but we had to tell her that we were helping Santa out, that mommys and daddys pick some things out to help Santa, but that Santa is really in charge of the stockings. She didn't question it one bit! And she had a lot of fun helping daddy (and Santa) pick things out for Payton since we now had to split up two and two and I took Payton. So here we are opening our stockings. Alexa couldn't wait to check out her loot. I think her favorite thing was her Princess Toothpaste (see picture below!!). My favorite part was giving Kevin his GIANT toothbrush...fitting, don't ya think??!! :-) And Payton, well...she just enjoyed it all!!
Then there were the presents!
Alexa was sooooo excited for her Cinderella doll from her cousin, Ainsley!
We had a great Christmas morning. We love our girls so much and it was so fun to see their delight and wonder. We are so grateful for this time of year, for the birth of our Savior and the holiday season to focus more on Him and His life. We hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas!
