As for me, my 2 favorite gifts were: my own quilt made by my talented sister-friend (not pictured because it is already on my bed...and my room has been the hiding place for any and all clutter during our days of company...), and some of my favorites of my talented brother's photographs framed for my walls! There is nothing better than gifts created personally by those I love!

Continuing the tradition, here is our day in pictures:
It took me a month to figure out how to make it without butter, and it isn't quite the same as real monkey bread, but it is pretty close. I was so thrilled to share this tradition with them!
Creating on our easels from Papa & Gigi (we almost didn't get them to open any more presents...)
Pillow Pals from Uncle Nic
Uncle Matt (having worked at a camp where the kids didn't know the song "When You Wish Upon a Star") did his part to introduce the twinners to the wonderful world of Disney!
It took a l-o-n-g time, but we finally got them to tear into the presents on their own.
After it was opened, they had to stop and play with each toy before opening another. Probably the longest present opening in history, but I didn't mind!
Their big present from mommy and daddy (no more jumping on the bed!)
