Here are some pics of the girls opening their presents (we did this on Christmas Eve, with the exception of a mini-trampoline and a play kitchen we saved for them to open on Christmas) and the completed nativity scene. :)
I love all of Emi's faces while 'analyzing' her presents. :)
Alyssa was so cute...she went into my storage container of gift bags and got a Hello Kitty bag. (because that's what Emily likes) :) Then she went through all her toys and filled the bag with things for Emi to open on Christmas. It was things they play with everyday (books, barbies, etc.), but Emi was so excited about everything when she opened it...it was pretty sweet! She especially liked the Snow White book, Alyssa knew she would...she picked that one out specifically! :)
I'm so glad I was able to find a Snow White (or known to Emi as 'no white') shirt for Emi, that's her favorite princess! :)
We decided to put together the kitchen the night before so they could play with it right away, but we still wanted them to open it...so we hid it in the garage and wrapped the box.
Nate went out to get it after they saw the box, but they opened the top before he got back and were a little confused. Alyssa said, "we got an empty box???", so I told her they can use it as a hideaway house...
...she was so excited about that! Here she is telling Emily all the fun things they could do with the box...it was so cute! ...they WERE very excited to see a real kitchen too though. ;)
