Santa Came!

We were excited to find that Santa made a special post-Christmas trip to our house after we got back from North Dakota.  We had our very own Christmas morning on January 2nd!  It was a very fun day.  Alice opened all of her presents from Santa and we had a nice family breakfast.  We relaxed and played with Alice's new toys throughout the rest of the day.

Santa filled our stockings:
...and there were lots of presents under the tree.  Alice was, apparently, a very good girl this year!
Santa took a bite of the cookies we left out for him, which Alice was happy to see:
In addition to all of her toys, Santa made sure to leave Alice a box of Macaroni & Cheese in her stocking, which was the only thing she asked Santa for this year!  (We ate the box for dinner as our special Christmas meal!)
A huge hit was Alice's "food":
She also received this cute, cuddly Mom and Baby elephants:
She loves her new stroller and took the opportunity to push all of her dolls around in it:
Santa also realized that Alice loves playing with "coins" and got her a folder to collect all the State Quarters - she loves looking at the pictures on the back of the quarters and then pounding them into the folder!  (Truly a financial planner's daughter!)
She also has really enjoyed the kitchen she received from Great Aunt Ricky and Great Uncle Charlie in Florida.  It has been a wonderful complement to all the play food she got from Santa, and she has really enjoyed playing with it and making meals for us!
Here is a link to the rest of the photos from "Christmas morning".  Enjoy!
