Big Al maintained her awful tradition of waking up early. Long ago we had to institute the "6 a.m. rule" where she couldn't get out of bed until 6 because she would bug us all night to get up and open presents. It's our fault..... we like big Christmases. We don't do tons of shopping during the school year except for needed items, so I don't remotely apologize for it.
T-Rex was very excited to get her new bow and arrows. Brian found a Zombie survival guide for her as well.
Blondie and Cheesie were excited to open absolutely everything.
Then T-Rex found her Zombie targets.
The Christmas Lego sets were discovered.
"Uh mom, this is a book."
Big Al shows off her gifts. These included a car radio (since the car she'll have access to doesn't have a USB port, she says it needs to be replaced), new cushion for her papasan chair, misc. sweatshirts, and t-shirts, ornaments, photos from the past year, scarves, and gift cards.
T-Rex with her new bow and arrows, books, movies, Hobbit Legos, knitting basket, sweatshirts, jewelry, art supplies, photos and Zombie equipment.
Blondie with her American Girl boxes, Legos, jewelry, new loom set for bracelets, photos, and fencing gear.
Cheesie received the American Girl gymnastics set, Legos, construction sets, playmobil gymnastics, photos and movies
Later today we'll try out the Xbox Kinect and compare it to the Wii. I'm hoping that it will force Blondie to move that left side more than the Wii does - don't tell her this though because presents shouldn't have ulterior motives. Later today we'll meet up with family for Christmas dinner here at our house, and then dessert and family presents at my sister's house.
