American Christmas Morning

The day we left for Ireland we woke up and found we'd had a surprise visitor!

Can you tell Caitlin was excited?

Santa wrote a note explaining how he didn't want Caitlin to have to carry her gifts on the plane. Mrs. Claus had him doing some training exercises that night so he decided to stop by and help little Caitlin out by making a quick stop along the way. (The note is hanging on the tree in the background. Very official looking!)

The ball pit was a big hit! That is until...

She met Clippity Clop!

I think Caitlin was as excited about see what we got as she was about opening her own gifts. She explored my camera bag and I wasn't sure I was ever going to get the jellybeans back!

It is hard to believe that last year she fell asleep in the swing while we opened her gifts for her. She is such a blessing!

Too cute! We got our 10 month old a ball pit for Christmas, too, and it has been a huge hit around here as well!
