Finding all the treasures in the stocking.
Maddie and Dede enjoying those Whitmans chocolates!!!
Very carefully opening those presents!
The one thing that Maddie had wanted was a cross. She had become very interested in Mommies gold necklaces recently. I got her a 14k gold cross necklace. thought she was going to cry when she opened it. She said "Oh, Mommy it is so beautiful. For me? I do love this cross." It was such a sweet and touching moment. She hasn't let us take it off since the day we put it on.
She was SO excited to get her Thomas the Train set. She played with this the entire rest of the day. We have since been able to add to the set as we found a great deal at a second hand shop on two bags of add on tracks, buildings and other character cars.
The Christmas morning after effect!! I thought it was a very artsy picture!!
