Merry Christmas

We had a good Christmas this year. In the morning, we let Gracie open some of her presents from us. Her big present from Santa was a kitchen which she loved. My friend has a play kitchen at her house and every time we go over there, Gracie loves to play with it so I knew that would be her big present this year. Gracie loved opening all of her presents. In the afternoon, we went over to Grandpa's house to eat dinner and open more gifts. Gracie hadn't had a nap all day and was super tired and once again, she fell asleep in the middle of opening presents. That's okay though because we took a break and resumed after she woke up. Grandma bought her an Elmo Live which is absolutely fantastic. I think the adults enjoyed it more than Gracie did!

Anyway, I hate to say this but I am glad that Christmas is over and am looking forward to the new year. I hope everyone had a joyful and happy Christmas.

She was actually snoring, she was so tired!

This is what Christmas is all about!

Great pictures! It looks like Gracie had a super Christmas. Too bad we don't live close. I think our girls would have big fun playing together. :-)
