We had such a good Christmas this year. My parents and brother came to Memphis to stay with us, and we had a lot of fun hanging out with them. The kids were so excited on Christmas morning, and we got an early start!
Richie always makes them sit on the stairs and wait before coming into the den to see their presents. His parents used to do the same thing to him, and he likes to carry on the tradition!
Margaret got a bitty baby with some matching pjs for herself. She also got a stuffed animal penguin which was actually the only thing she asked for for Christmas this year. She loves her penguin, and it has been everywhere with us!
Griffin got a bunch of sports equipment this year: a football helmet and pads (which he really needed), a batting helmet, and a basketball and baseball jersey. He has spent the last two days switching back and forth between sports.
Mamie got an ipod touch, and she absolutely loves it. I found a good app resource for kids here.
