It's not too late to post Christmas pictures, is it?

Christmas morning brings excited children, crazy hair and gifts from Santa.

Sophie got a Disney Princess Baby Doll. She loves her, but mostly she insists that she stay asleep all the time. She is a good mommy though, and makes certain that we are very quiet because the "baby seeping."
Chloe received the scooter that she so desperately wanted. Too bad she can't really ride it anywhere but the kitchen until all the snow melts. Maybe soon.

Bria's Santa gift was an EZ Bake Oven. She was thrilled, as she's wanted it for a really long time now. The Hannah Montana guitar was from Joel and me. I can't decide if she liked it better, or the EZ Bake. Time will tell.
Some new clothes from Mom and Dad. (From the Children's Place, of course). I am not sure what Sophie is doing with her eye there, but she's still pretty cute.
Monday of this week we finally got the EZ Bake set up and ready to cook something! Bria chose to make doughnuts. I think they turned out pretty good, and apparently, they tasted great as well. I didn't try any myself, but I take the girls' word for it.
Oh yes, the premier gift from my parents. A Nintendo Wii! So exciting! I knew about it, but Joel didn't. He was like a little boy opening it up. Since we went on our vacation the day after Christmas, we only just got around to setting it up (and I'm going to have to do some major moving and shaking there to make it work aesthetically--I hate cords everywhere!) and the girls are addicted. Even Sophia manages to roll strikes in the bowling game.

And, also, the laundry got folded by the girls last night, just so they could play. I think I'm gonna like this thing!

  4. How exciting. A Wii, a guitar, EZ bake donuts, a doll. I'm definitely going to have to come over soon! (I challenge you to a bowling duel...)

  5. Isn't Wii a blast?! Although the first time I played, I was painfully sore the next day. I had no idea how much I'd used my body! Ouch.

  6. Yes, when we got the Wii, it was a great babysitter/motivator and it still is! Enjoy it! I'm beginning to like the Wii Fit so I can get rid of achy muscles from having no regular sleep schedule. It's just great!

  10. I have always sworn that we would never have video games at our home, but after playing Dance, Dance Revolution and hearing about Wii Fit, I'm about to cave in. I'm with you on the cords though--it just looks like a terrible mess!

  11. Little girls with baby dolls...I love it! I only have children of the male persuasion, so that is a foreign concept to me. It is never too late for Christmas photos.

  13. Love Christmas morning pics! The wii is a great way to get your kids to do what you want. At least until it gets old. However, there are always new games! I hate the cord thing too--and now we have a wii fit board (and soon the yoga mat, no doubt) all right in the living room. Hate it! Oh, and I forgot the guitar hero world tour wii game guitar that's lounging out here as well. Yuck!

  15. Hi Lara! Your girls are so cute! I cried like a baby as well when, William our oldest was baptized this past November! I can not believe how big our little girls are now! We got a Wii as well this year! I am not so much a game fan but, the 4 boys love it. The picture with her baby doll is adorable. My little girl HATES dollies. It breaks my heart. Her favorite toy is HER Ninja turtles, dirty old bear, and a monster truck. Go figure! It is awesome to see your family!

  17. That is funny about them folding the laundry. We have had our Wii for almost a year, but the boy shave gotten into a lot lately, and they are now "cleaning"their room so that they can play. Whatever works.
