I was so excited for Christmas this year. We were lucky enough to be able to go to Idaho for three days to spend it with family. We also got to see both sides of the family while we were there. The girls were so excited when we got to Grandma and Grandpa Hendricks' house. They loved their pajamas and were so excited to open all the presents. On Christmas Eve we got together with my mom side of the family for our annual lunch and present exchange. The girls even got to participate in the nativity. It was pretty cute! Then we played a game and everyone got a surprise present....Andie ate hers before the game was even over. She was covered in blue from her sucker.
Then came the best part Christmas morning. We pretty much had to wake the girls up around 8 so we could open presents. Andie freaked out as soon as she walked upstairs and saw her Princess Kitchen. It was one of the things she has talked about for months. The girls were spoiled rotten of course and were loving every second of it. They both got more toys than we have places to put in our house and more clothes than they know what to do with. We had a nice and relaxing day though and I cant wait until next year when Elsie will be into it like Andie was this year. I even got my sewing machine that I have been wanting and Adam got his new snowboarding boots. Also for Christmas my mom bought the girls Christmas dresses. They were able to wear them the next day to church and Andie thought she looked just like a princess. We had an amazing 2010 and we cant wait to see what the next year has in store for us.
