The girls each got an American Girl doll that they have been wanting for years. It was the only gift we (the parents) gave the girls, and then one set of Grandparents sent extra historic clothes for each doll. The other set of Grandparents sent an American Girl doll horse for each girl and the American Girl "Itty Bitty" baby. To say the girls' eyes were popping would be an understatement.
Tom Sawyer, the Lego maniac, got lots of Legos! He was in heaven and spent the whole day building.
Timothy got a new mask for fencing and a saber. He is excited about moving into saber classes, in addition to advanced fencing in January. He also appreciated the stack of new books.
Grandma gave all the children Wedgits! Oh boy, are these fun! I can see many hours of play ahead with these. I love toys that everyone can play with (even the adults).
The afternoon was spent sledding--spending Christmas afternoon sledding--who would have imagined. I actually felt like I was in New England for a little while. Even Grandma got on a sled and had fun.
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! We are enjoying our blessings here.
