After beginning our day in the upstairs hallway reading the Christmas story in Mommy’s Bible and in one of Hannah’s books we made our way downstairs. I love how excited she was!!! (Smart cookie too! She quickly recognized the M&Ms candy cane in her stocking as the same gift I’d given my piano students this Christmas. Can’t get much over on her any longer!)
LOL! If you listen carefully to the beginning of this one you can hear what she’s looking for. So cute! Also, love how excited she got with each and every gift that she opened!!
Let it snow!
Minnie Mouse pj’s
A new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD
A Leap Frog LeapPad was my main gift to her. It’s designed for ages 3-7 but since she’ll be 3 in just 2 short months (whaaat???) I decided we’d give it a go! She’s done wonderfully with it and already knows her way around it playing games, watching videos and even using the camera!
LOL! Love how she blends into the sea of Christmas wrapping. And, that one lone gift still under the tree. She was so excited to play with some of what she’d already received that it sat there for a good hour until she was ready to open her final gift. I wanted her to have time to enjoy her gifts rather than open everything before the playing could begin. Guess it’s one of the perks of it just being the two of us. It gives us lots of time to take Christmas morning at our own pace and do what works for us. Fun!!
And…if you’re not already bored to tears with all the videos in this post, here’s just one more.
And yes, I still pinch myself all the time because I cannot believe this amazing, fun, wonderful, precious, sweet, beautiful little girl is my daughter! Truly God has blessed in ways we cannot measure! Oh how I love her!!!!!
And….HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!! May 2012 be an amazing year for you and your family!!
