Christmas 2010

We stayed with Aunty Theresa and Uncle Bruce and it was so fun to wake up and have Christmas morning with them! The girls loved their stockings filled with Girardelli Chocolates (from San Francisco) Zoobles, puzzles, barrel of monkeys and other goodies. And Santa (me) had to run at the last minute to find something for Jillian's stocking, only to find EVERYTHING closed except for gas stations. I know, I know. She would have never noticed not having a stuffed stocking, but I would. So I found a teddy bear at Circle K. 
 Our stocking stockpile.

 Leah scored a Cootie game, Littlest Pet Shop toys, 2 Barbie movies and Princess Barbies.
Monica also got some Littlest Pet Shop toys, 2 Barbie movies, more puzzles, the Princess barbies, and a game.
 For the entire year, Ryan kept saying he wanted to get back into working out, so I got him P90X for Christmas. But his gift was spoiled by the girl I bought it from! Just before we went up to ABQ, my phone busted, kaput. And a week before we went up I found an unopened P90X program on Craigslist. I told the girl who had it that it was for my husband, and gave her his phone number and said to just ask for Anna. When she called and Ryan answered she said, "Hi, I'm looking for Anna. She's buying P90X from me." HAHA! So I met her at Walgreens and got the not-a-surprise-anymore Christmas gift.  
 Ryan built the girls a doll house before we left, that we ended up figuring out was too small just before painting. It was my fault. I designed it. And he trusted me because I was the one who played with Barbies forever. So we are going to build a new doll house that will be big enough for Ken and the Disney fashion dolls.  
 This picture was of a gag gift. Ryan and I made a deal that if we had three girls, to balance out the drama and the estrogen, he could get a truck and a dog. 
 Well, with the appearance of Jill on the scene, it was time to make good on the deal. 
 Opening gifts is tough work.

 I love these pics.
 Aunty Theresa and Uncle Bruce were such wonderful hosts and spoiled us rotten with her gourmet cooking and all the fun!
 When Jillian woke up, we got her dressed and opened her presents.
Our 3 1/2 week old Santa Baby.

After we got ready, we headed over to Mom and Dad's to celebrate Christmas with everyone. When it was time to open gifts, it happened so fast that trying to calm Jillian took priority over taking pictures. But the girls scored big-time for their doll house. They got a bunch of furniture and new dolls.
Thank you, Nana and Papa! We had fun with good food, Just Dance ( I battled Emily and won. Whodathunk?), and then we watched "Despicable Me".
