Christmas at Home

After the girls calmed down from their excitement of seeing what Santa had left, we had our little family Christmas.  We used the four present rule again this year.  "Something they want, something they need, something they wear and something they read." 


Both girls got a new "ballerina dress" for their something to wear.  They love to twirl in them!  :)


Carli's "want" was a red bear just like Momma's.  My Mom had given me this red bear when I was a junior in high school for Valentine's day.  It went with me to college, grad school and our new home when we got married.  Carli has claimed him as her own and I told her that was fine but she was just borrowing him until it was time for her to go to college.  Her response was to ask for a bear just like mine for Christmas.  We only found one and it was on ebay.  Apparently it is a collectors item.  :)  It was worth it...she loved it and now she has twins and still hasn't given me my bear back!



Carli & Keith have designated themselves as Ranger buddies.  Carli was so excited when she opened her gift from Keith and it was a Ranger shirt and hat just like his! 


Ava worked hard on practicing her patience this year.  She loved her Highlight's magazine she got for her something to read and her brand new real ballerina dress as her something she wanted. 


Keith and I bought new living room furniture for our Christmas but we did get to open our stockings and a small gift from each other.  Ava was so sure that the Reece's Pieces were all for her!


Our Christmas at home was quiet, small and perfect.  :)
