Christmas Morning

Each year, on Christmas Morning, we sleep in then open gifts from each other in our pajamas. Every child likes to make or buy special presents for the siblings and Dad and Mom. Even Mary and Julia gave everyone gifts!



The tree (before we opened the presents underneath it).



The four youngest girls opening a present from all of their older siblings....



...a doll!




Rebecca and...

well, we aren't sure who she is. The doll's original name was Liberty, but she is also called Adelina (Addy for short), Lisa, Lily, Tabitha, Jessica, Elsie, and Violet :) Any suggestions?!



This one was a total surprise! Anna had no idea that Melody and I (Grace) had made this jumper for her, right under her nose!



Webster's 1828 dictionary - for Melody's hope chest.


Oh goody - another book to read!


The doll-dressing team extrordinaire.


Checking out a new book


All smiles


A bookmark that Anna crossstitched for Daddy.


The battle scene :)


Christmas Breakfast - egg casserole, cinnamon buns, and oranges - YUM!



The next few are a sequence:















Hooray!




What are we doing here?




There we go! The Mieczkowski Family Stairsteps!


Merry CHRISTmas!
