Christmas was pretty hectic this year, but it was a lot of fun. Annabelle woke up bright and early at 5 AM. I tried to get her back to sleep, but she wouldn't have anything of it. So we went in and woke up Dave. We came out and went through our stockings first. Annabelle was so excited to see what she had in hers, but also wanted to see what was in ours. We then took her over to the presents. At first she tried to open all of them at once. We got her to sit and open them one at a time though. She really got in to the unwrapping this year and even helped me unwrap all of mine. She loved all the presents she received. She would play with them for a minute before moving on to the next one. It was so much fun to see how excited she was about everything and to watch her great reactions and expressions. She had just the right amount of gifts, not so many that she was overwhelmed or bored and just enough to get all the unwrapping out of her system. We then stopped by our friends house and exchanged gifts with them. We hurried home to talk to our family and pack up the rest of our things. We then flew to Adelaide, SA. There we had a pretty relaxing night in a great hotel. It was fun, but I think I'd rather not fly on Christmas day again, too hectic! I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas as well!
