Christmas Day

My parents and sister decided they would come to our house Christmas morning to watch Lilly open her presents. This year I made Lilly a table tent (that will be a whole other post later on!) While we waited for my family to come, we let Lilly explore her tent.

Here she is with her presents with her cute Santa jammies and her cute hat!

My sister and Grandma gave Lilly this super cute pink chair. I have been wanting to get one of these for a while, so I think I was more excited than Lilly!!!

My sister gave Lilly some play makeup before she opened any of her other presents. Lilly just wanted to put the lipstick on over and over and over! My sister thought it went on clear, but it went on Barbie doll pink!!! We had to tuck it in her pants so she could open her presents. She would open one, put on lipstick, open another, put on lipstick, and on and on.

Her she is with pink all over. It's a little hard to see in this picture, but it was the best one I had!

Lilly got a new baby doll and she instantly knew what to do with her! She even gave her pink lipstick kisses!

She is such a good mommy! She even pushed the baby around in her stroller and covered her face with a washcloth!
Playing with her new train!

Opening a present:
Lilly loved opening her presents. She is still at the age where she just wants to play with the one she opened. We eventually got them all opened! We then made a yummy breakfast (actually Trevor did!) After breakfast my family left and we headed to Trevor's parents' house. When we got there things were a little quiet. The only people there were Trevor's dad and younger brother. Come to find out Christmas Eve Trevor's Grandpa was rushed to the hospital. To make a long story short, his heart gave out and he had to have a pacemaker put in! Due to a series of certain events, and tender mercies from the Lord, Grandpa Noble is doing great, dare I say better then he has been in years!!! We are grateful everything worked out for the better and he is still with us today!
Here is Lilly opening her presents from Grandma and Grandpa Foust:

She is so excited to use her drill to help Daddy build things in the garage!

Loving Uncle Landon:
After Trevor's parents, we headed to my parents to open our presents there. Lilly got this fun new kitchen! I love it because it is not too big, but it still has all the fun features of a kitchen.
As you can see by the pile of wrapping paper, we were all spoiled rotten!!!

After we opened presents and got spoiled from my parents, my dad made a SUPER yummy pasta dish! We devoured that, then played some Rockband!!!

Of course there are several more pictures, I just narrowed them down! We had a wonderful Christmas spent with our families. Now that we have a child, Christmas has that magical feeling again!!! I hope you all had a Merry Magical Christmas, too!
