'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Our story begins on Christmas Eve at GiGi's house. We had a great time with GiGi, Uncle Danny, Aunt Pam, Uncle Rick and Cousin Ricky, Uncle Brian, Aunt Michelle and Cousins Connor and Dylan, and Granny and PaPa.

The girls got lots of wonderful toys and books, but Anna Claire just couldn't have been happier with the ribbons and bows. Imagine how much money we could have saved... And what's this? Mallory is sitting up all by herself? Yep, that's right! I guess this was her Christmas gift to all of us. She's still a bit wobbly, but she really has gotten the hang of it and wants to be sitting up all the time now!The girls were just darling and couldn't have been in better moods. We timed everything right and made it home just in time for bed...but not before the girls were sure to set out cookies and milk for Santa - and don't forget some carrots for his reindeer!
Anna Claire and Mallory were hoping they could sleep under the Christmas tree and catch a glimpse of Santa, but all little children know that you have to be sound asleep in your own bed in order for Santa to leave your toys. Don't they look cute in their Christmas jammies?
The girls were so excited to see what Santa would bring them the next morning; nevertheless, they drifted right off to sleep and didn't make a peep all night long.

Stay tuned for the next part of our story...Christmas morning.
