The morning began with "A" jumping into our room and telling us how he heard Santa...some banging last night. "E" followed in looking tired, but very excited to see what Santa left for us. Sleeping Beauty was still snoozing and the boys had been worried because she can sleep until 9:00am sometimes!! We tried to hold them off a little, but ended up waking Mia:

Here they come, Mia is a bit confused, but she follows the boys!

Mia just loves her kitchen ~ she's been playing with it everyday (Eddie too!)

I am so glad we put this together (and the kitchen) a few days before Christmas. It was so nice to see "E" jump on and try it out; and also for Mia to instantly enjoy her kitchen.

Our big boy has been a wrestling fan for a while now. Santa had to encourage him even more and leave this humongous wrestling ring with a "few" wrestlers. My "A" has always shown appreciation for any gift he has gotten ~ just love that about him (wonder where he gets his enthusiasum from??)

Mia wasn't sure what to make of this morning. She floated around and tried out everything.

"E" is a huge Spongebob fan and had to have this! Next year I will have to tell Santa to give gifts that are age appropriate, as this is for 7-12 yr olds...comes apart easily (my guy is only 4 yrs old!). However, he loves playing with the bikini bottom residents the most :)

These little basket that came with the kitchen were a hit with my "bag lady" as I call her. She just loves to collect things in her strollers, carts or containers.

Penny likes her new collar

"A" cannot believe she also got "people crackers" !
Since my blog doesn't like (or accept) slide shows for some reason. I will post pictures on seperate posts.

Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas with very special memories for Mia's first!! Looks like lots of fun "goodies" too!! You'll have to let me know how you like Mia's kitchen. Faith wanted a little size kitchen from Santa....and he went with a rose petal cottage for her instead (it has a small stove in it). She had the Dora kitchen when she was 2 and she never played with it. She loved the accessories, but rarely even touched the kitchen. In fact this year when I told her I was going to get rid of it she just said OK! When she said she wanted a little size kitchen I was very surprised. I thought she would enjoy the cottage more and so far she does love it. She has some Christmas money from family and I am opting whether to get a kitchen or not. I'm just so afraid she will not even play with it again and it takes up so much space. We'll see. I've been checking some of them out and Mias looks like a very nice one.
