A Very Merry Christmas Indeed

Whew! There is no other way to start! What an amazing Christmas! I enjoyed time with family and friends and celebrating an amazing holiday.

It all started on Wednesday night when I got to open up some gifts from Mom and Dad. They thought it would make traveling a little easier if I opened my Yo Gabba Gabba DVD and my new magna doodle. I love them both. Then it continued with my Godbrother and his mom. We had dinner and exchanged gifts. They got me my very own shopping cart to go with my kitchen I love to play with. They also got me an Elmo purse-it has a compact, lipstick, change purse, etc. All just my size. It was a nice night.

Very early the next morning, we were off to spend time with Daddy's family. On Christmas Eve, we went to dinner with my Grandpa and my Uncle P. It was fun times and Grandpa gave me a great gift card that I cannot wait to spend! The next morning was the big day! I woke up and got to open more gifts and celebrate with Mommy and Daddy, Granny, Uncle C, Grandpa O, and V. I got two baby dolls that coo and make noises. One needs her paci or her bottle to soothe her and the other needs her blanket. I also got my very own potty! I have begun to tell Mommy and Daddy when I poo poo so they thought it would be a good gift for me. I also got a fishy lamp, Dora book and music player, and Dora doll. Later that afternoon, we were headed for family dinner where we got to see the rest of the family. You will never believe that when I got over there, I got a Leap frog ABC caterpillar, a play lawn mower, huge pink teddy bear, two book sets and an outfit. I would say that I did ok and it wasn't over yet! We had to leave family dinner to drive back home, where we were hosting Christmas with Mom's family.

On Saturday morning, Mommy and Daddy got up to start preparing for Family Brunch with Mom's family. They did a great job and put out a nice spread, thanks to the help of the great new griddle Mamaw and Papaw gave Mom and Dad. Once everyone got there, we enjoyed brunch. We had an adult table, girls kid table, and boys kid table. It was pretty fun! After brunch, we had a blast opening the mountain of gifts that Mamaw and Papaw brought, as well as my aunts, uncles, and cousins. Wow, there were people and gifts everywhere. Dad captured some shots of all the fun. I got so much stuff that I am sure that I am forgetting something but here are some of the things: baby doll, baby doll accessory set, caterpillar ride on, cabbage patch doll, Tinkerbell DVD, Dora cards, shoes, teapot set, Dora backpack, Little People school set, extra Little People, Dora tent and tunnel, my size tricycle, Dora doll, Little People car set, and a gigantic stocking filled with all kinds of other goodies! Wow, what a day. The next day we went to hang out at my aunt and uncle's house who also live here. It was fun, they did a great job on the food. My favorite was the cookies. We played so much that I forgot to take a nap until 6:00pm! Yes, that is so late. So Mom and and Dad were worried I would never go to sleep. I did, but it was late. There was just too much excitement.

Today, I have just been non-stop in playing with all of my new items. I cannot believe how good I was treated this Christmas. I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas and we are looking forward to a wonderful New Year!

Christmas Photos

Mom had the wonderful idea to get the Christmas photos of me and the family this weekend. Well I really wasn't up for it so I was not the most cooperative but I think somehow Mom managed to get some pretty good ones. I think that from being sick this week, I wasn't quite ready to jump in some tights and nice dress but we did it anyway! Mom was on a mission and well when Mom is on a mission . . . enough said!

Check out some of them . . .

16 Months Old

Today I turned 16 months old. Hard to believe! Although it wasn't the best day to celebrate, we tried to have fun! I had a rough night on Friday night and we just stayed in the rest of the weekend to fight my fever and running nose. I am starting to feel better finally today but we will have to see how it goes tonight.

So I bet you are wondering what I am up to now that I am 16 months old? Well I am up to a lot! A whole lot! I got a new guitar today that Mom and Dad caved in and gave me early. I am not mad about it because I am pretty happy that they couldn't wait until Christmas. I have been playing with that today because one of my favorite things is still music. I love it! Here are some of my other favorites and milestones . . .

*Music - of any kind! I just love music!
*Dancing - I dance to anything, music, commercials, videos, cartoons, anything!
*Dora - yes, I have found Dora! I like Diego too but Dora is my favorite right now!
*Yo Gabba Gabba - the show and music - Dad bought me the soundtrack and it is so much fun!
*Grilled cheese and bananas - my favorite meal right now!
*Taking baths - they are still so much fun!
*Running around - outside or in the house, it doesn't matter!
*Christmas tree and lights - I love when Mom turns on the lights in the house
*There is so much more that we cannot even think of right now!

*Running full force - no more walking unsteadily or like Frankenstein, I am on the move!
*Cutting a new teeth or two at least every week - I know finally!
*Climbing stairs - look out too, I am fast!
*Since I have completed my major ones, it is hard to name all the new things that I do! I am sure I am forgetting so much more!

I am just loving the holidays and enjoying my family! We have a lot of fun and are amazed that it has been 16 months!

Giving Thanks!

Well we know that we are a bit behind, but I would like to give thanks to God, my mom and dad, grandparents, other family, and friends. I would like to also give thanks for being able to spend time with family over the holiday! I always have so much fun!

During the beginning of the holiday, Granny P came up and stayed with me and even watched me while Mom and Dad embarked on the Black Friday deals. I certainly hope they found some really good stuff for me. I am sure they did!

On Saturday, we went to Uncle Da's house to visit and go to his first game as BB coach at his school. It was fun to visit with everyone and play with all my cousins. I came back and slept sooooo good. Too much fun!

Check out me and my cousins in the great shirts my Uncle Da got us to support his team . . .
