The girls got up at their usual early hour of 6 on Christmas morning. We were instructed to wake everyone up so that they could see them open their gifts, so that is what we did. The girls had stockings filled by Santa, plus oodles of gifts from my parents and sisters.
Both girls loved getting new toys and Eloise was more excited about the toys than I expected. She definitely enjoyed the wrapping paper, but seem to take to a few of her gifts. We had a lovely breakfast after opening gifts of breakfast casserole and baked french toast. We made both the night before and just had to put them in the oven in the morning. After breakfast most of the family took a rest, but not Greta!
