One of the things Avery has been wanting to do, is to go ice skating! In town we have an indoor skating rink, so we thought we'd go on over and try it out!

Liv LOVED skating....she is super good...

Avery caught on after a while!

They started getting more confident and venturing out alone.

Daddy told them that we can go back again sometime soon, so we are looking forward to that!

After our day of ice skating, we came home and got ready for the fun night of gifts!!!

"Santa" knocked on our window, and this was Avery's expression. I was told that Liv took off running in the other direction (mommy and daddy were on a date...)

Avery was determined to leave "Santa" cookies, and so we got them all ready for him! Who says that girls with allergies can't have fun baking, too?

The girls opened up their gifts from us and from Nana and Bapa.

Liv is obsessed right now with the movie "Enchanted". She loved opening up this one!

Avery got CandyLand!!!

My dad has wanted a flag that he could put up on their camper, so I had this made for him...isn't it pretty neat?

Before bed, Avery got "Santa's" table all set up in front of the tree. He had some milk, cookies, carrots for the reindeer, and the letter that she wrote him.

Christmas morning, this is what she woke up to find......

She said to me, "Mom....I'm so glad my wish came true....Santa is real!"

Livvie got a fun stroller for her baby dolls.

Avery got Eden from the Christmas Carol DVD!

The rest of the day we spent being lazy, and eating. Nana and Bapa took Avery to "Marley and Me", and she really enjoyed that!

Hope you all had a fabulous time too!

Sounds like fun was had by all! They looked great on the ice. Jaquelyn and Becca love to ice skate too. It's good to see I'm not the only one who bundles my kids up to ice skate. Jaquelyn complains while I am getting her ready...but not as much after several falls. ;-)
