Christmas morning came way to early! Mike put together the kitchen Santa brought Izzy ( so nice of him to leave it for us to assemble!). Mike's family left after the progressive dinner about midnight so we started and finally at 2 am we were done. At 7:30 am on the dot Isabel comes in our room, it took Mike a full 5 minutes to wake up with Isabel saying "Daddy it's open present time! Daddy wake up!" We learned an important lesson, open big presents last, she saw her kitchen under the blanket and was so excited to see it that nothing else was quite as exciting but we got her distracted enough to open her other presents.
I realized that there are no pics from Mike or I opening presents but many from Isabel. THe first is her joy in the kitchen then her sharing a drink from it. And of course our family picture... you can see the bags on our faces, but it was a great morning. We topped it off with homemade cinnabon rolls from a recipe Jeni sent me. They were very good (if a little undercooked!). Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
