This is the nice civilized time when Santa has just packed the Santa sack before sneaking it back into Ronin's room (on another note I am glad we bought the extra large one, there is a train set in there that takes up a fair bit of room with the box.)
Right after Santa left:
Zoe with three of her presents:
Playing with his train set from Santa:
The girls (including baby to be) got a doll house from Santa. From us, DD1's big gift was the baby butterscotch Fur Real horse. Lainey's was the Fur Real Bouncy puppy. They both got books, playdoh, and a few other smaller things. They got a million other items from grandparents, uncles, and various other family members.
Madison's big gift was the Bitty Baby by American Girl and an art easel. She also got playdoh, puzzles, books and some other goodies. And things from grandparents, friends, etc.
She actually was totally over opening presents after about 5 of them today. So I actually had to help open them. What kid does that?!
Molly, i had to open most of Lucas' gifts. not interested at all!
He got A TON of clothes which i was happy about. I think my favourite gift he got was from my dad. It is a turtle with little stars on it's back and when you turn the lights off it makes little stars and moons on the ceiling. He loves it!
Ohh I've seen them Janice and I think they look so cool. Ronin was spolit, he got some play dough and chalk from Santa, along with a train, some books, a placemat, a pillow pet and a ball, along with the swings and trampoline. From family he got a battery operated quad bike, two toy workbenches, more books and an etch a sketch. My Dad felt bad as he only had time to go to one of the cheap shops on like Christmas eve because of everything going on and got Ronin a train, a punching bag, beach toys and a cricket set. He still has more gifts to come from some other family we didn't see on the day as well. You have been warned, lots of photos
Not a Christmas present, but this is where he spent most of the day

Tobey got cars, trains and Duplo and a magnetic drawing set which was about $1 but it's his favourite present. He's really into art so I can see a lot of art supplies in his future gifts (he's like me for that. There is a photo of me when I was about 30 months old sitting on the potty drawing a picture of a cat, and you can tell it's a cat. Tobey keeps drawing faces. I can see what he's trying to do but the bits are all in the wrong place Totally digressed there )
DS1 got a ton of Lego. I'm regretting it now
Both boys should have had bikes but DS1's bike is faulty so we need to take it back so they didn't get them. We are going to tell them that Santa couldn't fit them in his sleigh

Christmas was a HUGE, HUGE success with this girl. From Santa, Adair got one of those nice toddler pianos (red) and a stocking with lots of fun little things like nail polish and candy. A BIG hit was one of those little magnetic doodle pads for the car--it was one of DH's secret santa gifts from work, and we just stuck it in her stocking at the last minute. Win!
From us she got a backpack (which she really wanted), and a bunch of little things (sparkly pink shoes, bunny slippers, letter building toys, tea set, new towel, etc.)
From one grandma, she got a sandbox, and from the other, a dollhouse. Both major, major successes.
She's been playing with everything, even the crappiest little stuff. It's adorable. And now that she GETS the idea of presents...watch out. She pretty much hasn't stopped asking to open presents since the moment she opened her last one yesterday.
Isabelle got a toy chest from us and she will be getting a play ice cream set, a wooden donut set and a wooden train set when we do our family gift exchange this weekend. She got books, a baby doll and a baby doll feeding set, some real kitchen items (measuring spoons, cups, spatula since she always wants to steal mine when I am cooking) and some clothes from my parents and she got a Minnie Mouse doll with a talking hair bow from my sister and more clothes from my brother and other sister. She also got various clothes and small toys/books from our other relatives as well as money which will go into a savings account for her.
We spread out the gift opening over a few days because she only is good for opening so many-she wants to stop and play with each one as she opens them and too many at once at this age is really too much-much more fun to spread it out.
