Christmas Morning 2013

Christmas was a wonderful day for Hannah and I filled with lots of love, time together and special moments with family!

Hannah first woke up at 5:30 but thankfully only took a little encouragement to fall back asleep until 6:50.  By then Mommy was ready to get up too.  I stopped to brush my teeth so missed her first view of the tree.  I think next year I’ll have to start the, ‘You wait here while mommy checks to see if Santa came’ routine so that I can turn on the tree lights and also capture her first moments.  IMG_1823

We both enjoyed opening our stockings first and seeing all the neat treats Santa had packed in there.  IMG_1826


Hannah was happy when she received a new Tinkerbell LeapPad game, map and Princess Cupcake game from Santa.  The game was what she’d asked for often so she was extra excited about that! IMG_1845

The DVD player she watches in the car had broken so Mommy bought her a new one plus a fuzzy blanket to replace her favourite baby ones that are too short to cover my tall little girl now! 

What a treat it was this year when I found some wonderful little surprises from Hannah under the tree too!  Many were handmade and quickly became treasures!  She was so excited to give each one to me!IMG_1834

She made me this beautiful bracelet and then kissed Mommy’s hand when she put it on me.  Oh how she melts me!!IMG_1840

Encased in this beautiful handmade wrapping was a sweet Christmas tree made when her teacher painted her feet green and then she stamped on a star and painted a stem.  Must take a pic of that!IMG_1841

After the gifts were opened and before the cleaning crew of Mommy and Hannah arrived.  IMG_1846

We played her Princess cupcake game which is an adorable game for a 4 yo who enjoys playing with little, tiny things.


After breakfast we enjoyed our annual tradition of watching the Disney Christmas parade together.Christmas morn watching Disney parade

Hannah and I enjoyed a wonderful Christmas morning at home together before heading to Mom and Dad’s for more excitement.  We hope you had a great day too!IMG_1844


  1. Looks like lots of fun & happy memories were made! I love your new bracelet! So sweet!!! Her pjs are adorable too! Christmas mornings with 4 year olds are definitely the best!

  2. How fun! I love the mess. My philosophy is the messier things are the more fun they had! Love that she got a "Frozen" item. Maylin got a shirt. Glad she loved all of her things. Kids make Christmas so happy!

  3. I've not seen the Princess cupcake game before--where did you get it?

    1. I've seen it in the States but can't remember seeing it here in Canada. Hope this helps!
