Our Happy Holiday

This Christmas business just keeps getting better and better each year. I loved it last year, but I REALLY loved it this year. I loved all the family I got to see, all the cookie making, all the lights, and of course, all the presents. Ever since that wondrous day passed, I have been asking for Christmas to happen all over again. Mom keeps telling me to look forward to my birthday because it will come again sooner, but I really would prefer Christmas and all the festivities that go with it. Oh well, guess I will join her in the pre-planning of my birthday party (do you think she may only be trying to distract me from my constant requests for another Christmas?). At this point in time, I would like a superhero themed party. We'll see if that idea sticks around come June.

My family has a tradition of opening up stockings and one present on Christmas Eve. So, here I am finally able to open a few presents! Can you guess I was a little excited?

Esther had a fun time too. Here she is with Uncle Bill.

She got a cabbage patch doll for Christmas. Looks kind of like her, doesn't it?

The morning of Christmas. I asked Santa for Murdoch the train and was so incredibly excited to see him that morning!

Here I am making cookies with my aunt Carrie. She and Uncle Mike came to visit a week before Christmas and it was so much fun having them here. I LOVE to bake/cook and I really, really love my aunt Carrie. She and I had a blast during our most recent visit and I can't wait to see her and Uncle Mike again! I also can't wait to meet my new cousin!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

You're kids are so adorable. Its amazing how similar they look even though they have their own looks entirely. I am glad to see your holidays went well. I am really looking forward to getting back in touch with everyone now that things are slowing down!! I'm glad everyone is still alive and well!! Hope you have a great week! Hopefully i'll talk to you again soon.

Hi, I was creating my first blog and when I click "next blog" it show your adorable kids and I want to introduce my little girl Ana, from Spain, three years and two months old. May be when our kids are older they can be friends.

My baby is here 4 months ago:

Best regards.
