Sitting in the quiet of the morning, waiting for that moment when we hear her. Excited to see if Santa has come to bring her a present, fill her stocking and FINALLY be able to open presents under the tree. Last night she was begging for Mommy to open a present. It was so cute because we'd had family and friends all day giving her presents she could open. She just didn't understand why there were some she couldn't. Sweet girl.
Here is Elyse's first visit with Santa this year. Before, whenever I mentioned seeing him she'd say, "No, I'm too shy". Twice, we actually saw him and she cowered behind my legs. Until this day, when it was suddenly all her idea.
He asked her what she wanted for Christmas. She proudly said, "Doc McStuffins!" He reached underneath his chair and gave her a little doll. She looked confused, "That's not Doc McStuffins!" (Cute !!)I intervened and explained and Santa gave her a stuffed bear and she beamed with pride!
