We took so many pictures during the Christmas holidays that I have just now gotten around to getting them posted on our blog! Christmas Eve was a pretty stormy day. Lots of wind. Lots of rain. But my parents braved it all and came over to our house for a late lunch and to open presents. Brian had smoked a tenderloin on the Big Green Egg and I made some delicious Weight Watchers twice baked potatoes. After dinner, we went down to the playroom and opened presents. My parents got Logan Chuck the talking truck. He LOVES this truck! He even had to sleep with it Christmas eve. Ha! This is a boy who loves his trucks!
My parents got Mackenlee a Baby Alive doll that you feed and she actually tee-tee's and poops. It's a wonderful toy, really. So wonderful that I don't let Mackenlee feed her the food that came with it but rather she can pretend to feed the baby and change her diaper. She loves this little doll, though. It stays in her bed and she plays with it daily. Mackenlee actually asked for this babydoll by name after she had picked it out for Sierra for her Christmas present. After opening it, she and my dad played with it for a little while. They fed, soothed and changed the baby. Over and over again. My dad is such a natural when it comes to playing dolls with kids.
When Mackenlee had had enough of feeding babies, she moved on to a tea party with Mumzie. They let Logan join for a minute or two and then he was kicked out.

On Christmas morning, Brian and I were waiting for the kids to wake up. We finially heard Logan playing with his new Chuck truck so we thought we would go get him and let him see what Santa had brought. He was so cute when he entered the playroom. He was so shy. Didn't say anything, but went over to his train table and carefully observed it before he started playing with it.
