Christmas morning!! Caroline woke up at about 7:30 so we were glad to sleep in a little. Caroline couldn't wait to see if Santa came...looks like he did!
She asked for two things this year...a car she could drive and a candy cane. She's been such a good girl, Santa was able to grant both requests :-)
Can you believe Santa completely forgot to put all of Matthew's goodies in his stocking?!? I just know Santa was so upset and will hopefully never make that mistake again! Luckily, Caroline didn't notice (and of course Matthew had no idea...whew)
Caroline got lots of movies this year...and a few to add to her Disney collection (Alice in Wonderland, Bambi & Tangled)
Matthew "opened" a few gifts with the help of Matt...
After a terrfic morning at Mimi and PopPop's house, we got dressed and headed to my mom's house to have Christmas with her, my brother, aunt and Nannie
"Look, balls, my favorite!!!!!!!!!!"
My mom gave Caroline this precious jewelry box with a ballerina inside that spins around and plays music when the lid is opened...Caroline was in awe!
She also loved her Madeline movies and Madeline doll...we are REALLY into Madeline these days!
Caroline's favorite gift she received at my mom's house, however, was this Fur-Real dog...you can walk this dog on a leash, it barks, whimpers, etc... and is so real. She played with it the rest of the day. Glad she likes it because it's the closest she's going to get to having a dog, haha
My mom and me
Some of the Krauss clan (excuse the flash in the mirror):
Caroline loves to play this game we call "Pile On"...she yells out "Pile on Daddy" and we all go jump on top of Matt. We both love it...Matt, not so much!
We spent the rest of Christmas Day at my mom's house. She cooked us a delicious Christmas meal, and we enjoyed sitting around and talking while the kiddos played with their toys. So thankful for this wonderful day to be together with our family and celebrate the birth of our Savior who was born so He could die for us. Merry Christmas!!
