Christmas 2011 - part 2

Christmas day.
our little family spent Christmas morning at our home with Memaw here to watch the little girlies open their presents.
they were both so much fun.

so I hear she looks like me, but here I see a whole lotta daddy!

this gal definitely knew what to do with the presents this year.

she was pretty into it too.

Ellie's little kitchen from Santa.

Caraline's big girl kitchen from Santa.

another one of this girl's favorites, she loves her some coloring!

we then went to the hubby's parents house for brunch.
and not just any brunch.
we are talking the best brunch ever!
with the most amazing homemade cinnamon rolls made by y mother in law! (they cant be beat!)

uncle adam feeding ellie her brunch.

the kiddie table.

we then had some playtime after lunch.

ledger and his curls:)

caraline playing with her new counting cookies, great gift!

cousin mel taking care of e.

uncle james has a way with making the babes smile and giggle.

santa zac.

after playtime, naps, other Christmas get togethers, everyone came back for dinner.
another yumm-o meal!
Tim's parents do some unbelievable cooking!!
then it was present time.
unfortunately our 2 year old was being exactly that, 2, and I didn't get any pictures of this time because I was taking care of Ellie and the hubby was 'trying' to control Caraline between her trying to open others presents, screaming and crying, and throwing toys/taking toys away from the other kiddos.
it was flat out, embarrassing! but it was late, she was on overload, and like I mentioned before she is now '2'!
(which this whole 2 year old fit thing is a whole other post in itself)
so no pics of presents and I didn't get pics of all the family members but fortunately Tim's cousin Alicia got lots of super cute pics of everyone, definitely making copies!

somehow in all the chaos I did end up with a cute pic of  mommy and E!

it was a wonderful holiday weekend.
even with all the sickness, surgery, etc.
we enjoyed celebrating Christmas and just being with our family so so so much!
can't wait to do it again next year!

 I'll end my Christmas posts with Dr. Caraline playing with her American girl babydoll she got from Nana and Papa! (this has been a daily thing since Christmas)
