My 1st Christmas (EvE)!!! :)

WoW! What a fun night! Where do I start?!
We've been celebrating all day. . . First with a movie (Christmas Carol) with my uncles. I skipped out on that and played with Popi. Sitting in a theater for so long sounded kind of boring to me. Then we all met Mimi for dinner at Outback and headed home for dessert. Much to our surprise, Santa stopped by our place EARLY this year! :) (Daddy doesn't believe in Santa. He's too old, but Mommy and I do). . .
See my teeth?!

Mimi made pajamas for a special Christmas picture (a new tradition with the grandkids). Mommy couldn't decide which picture to post because they all turned out so good!! Next year my cousins will be in it with us!! We can't wait!

Opening presents. . .

Dessert. . . Baked Brie, French truffles, chocolate gnash, German cookies (Christmas around the world theme, I guess), sesame cashews, butter pecans, and of course Wassail! YUM! (We love food! As if you couldn't tell). . .

Uncle Ebic :)

My StOckInG

Aunt Molly and Uncle Kyle. . . please come home (bring the twins and some snow). Christmas isn't the same without you!! We miss you SO MUCH!! (Our family picture looks so empty).

Cheers to the joy, peace, hope and love we have in Christ- the greatest gift of all!!

So sweet!! I know that Jonah made this Christmas extra special for you and your family. AND...I LOVE the Christmas pajamas - so special:) We do that too, but they aren't made with as much love as yours.
