We held the kids off for as long as we could until they just couldn't wait any longer to get down those stairs to see what Santa had brought them. The first thing Grace saw was her dollhouse. She screamed and said "I got a dollhouse and it's huge!". She loved it!
They tore right into their stockings and their presents. Zachary was still a little unsure about it all and just kept looking for his monorail that he had asked Santa for. He finally found it and was very excited. He also loved his "big huge monster truck" and his volcano mountain set that he had asked for. Grace got lots of Hannah Montana dolls and furniture for her house. Once they had unwrapped and discovered everything that Santa brought, we took a quick break for me to get breakfast in the oven and a pot of coffee brewing then it was back to opening more gifts.
