Christmas Day 2013:

Christmas morning we were up before Charli (clearly we were more excited than she).
After Charli woke up we couldn't wait to take her downstairs to show her all of the goodies that had been left...




 m                



I had this huge vision of what I thought she would do Christmas morning and how excited I knew she would be. 
I was wrong...




She was in complete shock, confused, and wanted nothing to do with the presents...

 I am glad it only lasted a few minutes though... 
After she woke up a little more and then realized all of these fun things were for her, she was all about it and was in to everything!!








It was also a certain little puppy's First Christmas!!


Merry Christmas Hachi!


And of  course Daddy and Charli had to take their new gift (bike seat for Charli) for a test run...
In their Christmas jammies and all! 


And then the aftermath of it all...


We had the perfect Christmas morning and I am the luckiest girl in the world to have these two as my own!

We then sat with anticipation as we waited for my mom and dad to get here! 
We were so excited that they were able to make the trip up on Christmas day to be here with us! 
Then it was on to...

Opening of more Christmas presents...
(Thank you Uncle Darren for Charli's new favorite book! haha!)

 (Seriously loving my new sled from my Momma!!)


Playing of board games and card games...

Wagon time with Nana and Bailey...

(And why yes, Nana knows how to multitask... Wine and Wagon!!)



 Pushing her new baby on her trike...
(With helmet on and all... Safety first!)

 Then sitting down to a perfect Christmas Dinner...



I could not have asked for a better Christmas with my family! 
We are truly blessed to be living so close to family and are able to spend these very special holiday's and occasions together... Making memories... Because that is what it's all about! 

We ended our Christmas day with lots of spiked eggnogs and hot cocoa's, playing board games, card games, and watching Christmas movies! 

Thank you Mom, Dad, and Amia for making the trip up here and spending Charli's second Christmas with us! 
We love you all! 


I hope everyone had just as amazing of a Christmas as we did!

  5. What a wonderful Christmas! Yes, little ones (under four) don't always understand the idea of Santa right away, but I'm sure glad she warmed up to her presents. It sounds like you had much fun, love, and laughter. I love the test bike ride in jammies. So cute! Have a wonderful New 2014!
