Christmas Morning

I was so excited for Christmas this year! It has been so much fun seeing and hearing everything from Ella's perspective. Everything to her is so "prettyful" (beautiful + pretty) and magical! She would wake up in the morning and come into the living room and say "Oh Momma, this room is so prettyful!". She loved the Christmas tree, the decorations, and especially Christmas lights. I loved playing with her Little People Nativity scene and talking about Jesus and reading her the real story of Christmas.

Christmas Morning we woke up early and waited on Ella to wake up. Layla, who normally wakes up around 9:30 was so excited she woke up at 6:30! By the time Ella woke up at 8:30 Layla was ready to go to sleep! We had her stay up though to finish opening presents.

Trey went to get Ella in her room so I could take a picture as soon as she saw her presents. She was so excited!

Because this is the first thing she saw! Her new princess bike!

Santa brought her the bike, a bean bag, and a princess vanity set that lights up and talks with jewelery and makeup.

She loves her bike!

She ran and jumped in her bean bag chair!

She was so excited about all of her presents! I love this sweet smile on her face.

My two sweet girls! Christmas couldn't have been any better!

Layla was investigating what Santa brought her, a singing puppy and a ball with lots of activities.

Then it was time to open presents from Mom and Dad. We got her the princess doll from Tangled that has a light up singing vanity. She LOVED it!

New shoes!

 Go Texas Tech!!

This girl loves anything sparkly, so these sparkly boots were a sure bet!

This was the best picture Trey could get. Ella wanted to play and Layla wanted to sleep! 

Yes, we did get presents for each other, but the girls are much more fun to photograph. I got Trey a Texas Tech hat, shirt, and some Adidas mesh shorts and pants. He always tells me to get him comfortable, casual clothes because I usually get him nice dress clothes, so I finally listened!

He got me a cute charm necklace, a pair of TOMS, and a book on sewing. Yep, I sewed Layla's stocking and decided I want to start sewing a few things here and there.

We forgot all about the stockings and opened them after we opened all of our presents so Ella was excited there was even more stuff! We had a great morning and watching Ella open everything was so much fun. I even had her open my presents because I knew she enjoyed it. We had the best Christmas morning and played with everything until my family came over for lunch.
