Christmas 2013

Just a little holiday recap, mainly through (too many) photos.

We had such a great day, just the four of us.  I greeted Ashlynn in the morning saying "Merry Christmas, Santa came!" and while we've had all the presents under the tree since we took our family photos two weeks ago, I was shocked when she made a beeline for it when we got downstairs.

We opened a few presents taking time to play with each one before moving to the next and took an intermission to eat some baked french toast (my favorite) which Ashlynn was pretty obsessed with.  We went back to opening and playing with presents and that took us almost the whole way until nap.

It was a great first Christmas in our new home, even if we picked up Chinese food instead of cooking a special fancy meal.  Ashlynn had such a blast and I can't wait until next year when she actually "gets it" and can find items she requests of Santa under the tree, as opposed to things we picked out that she didn't even know she wanted, let alone existed.   Also having a mobile Kenley to grab and steal all of Ashlynn's new toys will totally make a for a fun and exciting day.   It's only going to get better from here.

went straight to the one gift that was added the night before, smartie pants

LOVES her Fancy Nancy!






someone woke up and joined the party







I hope everyone had a memorable and fun day with their families and loved ones.
