For Our Christmas We.....

Since we travel to the midwest over Christmas, we have our family's Christmas a little early.  On Friday, we opened stockings.
One of the gifts the girls got was a princess flashlight.  We're very excited about the princess flashlight.  So much so that we like to walk into Mom and Dad's bedroom in the morning flashing it in their faces to let them know "IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP!"  Worst alarm clock ever.

After stockings we made "make your own pizzas" for dinner. 

It's always nice to see the cook in action with her hands down her pants, isn't it?

We decided to do stockings on Friday night and then do presents on Saturday because last year, we did everything all at once and I think the girls were nearing some sort of over stimulation coma.  So we spread it out more this year.


Nothin' wrong with a princess fort.  That's what I always say, anyway.

We had ourselves a nice breakfast and then played with our respective new toys.  Then in the evening we went to Cactus Cantina for dinner.




Harper paid.  Wasn't that nice?

And then after dinner we went to the zoo to see the Zoo Lights.





A blue tree.  It's a Christmas miracle as far as Harper's concerned.

Nice weekend.  And this is just the beginning.....
