I already shared some of the kids Christmas presents in yesterday's post.
You did see yesterday's post, right?
I'll wait then. :-D
Ok, so today I'm "showcasing" the BIG present for McKayla. The one she didn't actually ask for but the one she was thrilled beyond belief about. Well, it's more than one present but they're all tied together.
This post is also going to be short on words and long on pictures. I know you don't mind. ;-)
|Ok, so I wasn't really trying to take a picture of the presents here|
but Rio looked so cute I had too. He was moping around b/c "his"
couch was piled full of presents so he sat in a little ball LOL
Now, I'll add here that opening presents on Christmas morning is usually done in PJ's (as you saw in yesterdays post) but Meme requested that she put on this dress specifically for opening up this present. Let's see if you can catch why. :-)
|With wrapping paper inside??|
|And MORE paper inside???|
|Oh wow! A dolly!|
|That's dressed just like me!!!|
|And she looks like me too!!!|
Ok, so now I'll explain the above pictures. McKayla got a doll named Emily from Meme and Grandpa Sonny. Mom had found McKayla's dress first and saw that it came with an 18" dress and began searching for 18" dolls and came across American Girl dolls. She had never heard of American Girl before (gasp! The horror! LOL) but was quickly hooked. When she found Emily, she looked so much like McKayla that Meme just HAD to get her.
McKayla was quickly aware that Emily had on the same exact dress as her and she thought that was THE coolest thing ever! She gushed for quite some time and kept saying "She looks just like me! She looks JUST like me!"
The next row of pictures are Emily's "extras". (Before too long, I'm gonna need a bigger house just for Emily's stuff! LOL)
|Bunches of clothes for Emily!|
|A cool AG DIY banner kit!|
|Whoa! This is a big box!|
|A wardrobe JUST for Emily! Cool!|
|Well this is weird shaped.....|
|How much stuff is on here!?|
|A Pony?! For Emily! And she looks JUST like Butterscotch!|
So, to recap Emily gifts for Christmas:
- Emily (duh LOL)
- Christmas dress (that matches McKayla's) with black tights and red shoes
- Wardrobe with hangers (yay!)
- Cheerleading outfit
- 2 dresses
- 2 pairs of pajamas (one of which matches McKayla's PJ's)
- Cowgirl shirt (mom is going to make Emily a matching leather skirt like McKayla's that she wore in the pictures with Butterscotch)
- a pair of jeans
- SEVERAL pairs of shoes
- couple pairs of tights
- a pair of sunglasses and a pair of regular glasses
- cell phone
- hair brush
- An American Girl shopping bag
So there's McKayla's BIG Christmas gift. Even now in May, Emily is pretty regularly played (those of you with kids know how once the newness wears off, they usually lose interest). Of course, it helps that Meme keeps bringing more stuff for Emily and McKayla.........guess Emily is the gift that keeps on giving! Haha!
