Santa Claus found the McGee girls once again. I came downstairs and took this picture just before the girls got to see their treasures. The girls each got the dolls they wanted so much. Elle's is the snorkeling girl. Gwen's is the ballerina doll and Lily wanted the princess dolly. They also each received a scooter. For weeks Lily had been asking for an orange scooter. Gwen wanted hot pink and Elle didn't ask for a scooter but since her favorite color is navy blue, Santa brought her a navy blue scooter. All the gifts were fun but I'd have to say that the gifts they loved the most were their little art boxes. Santa put together a box for each of them full of crayons, scissors, markers. stickers, paper, glue sticks etc. Even my little Lily received her own box. She's so proud. This is one of my favorite pictures of the morning:
...the girls first realization that Santa really did make it to our home. Each of them are looking directly where their gifts were. No guessing or names on anything was needed. They each knew right where to run. As much fun as they had, I must admit, it's waaaay more fun being the parent.
