Jeremy got sick on the 23rd and is still recovering a bit. He rallied during our festivities, but he definitely did a lot of resting in between. It was nice to just be the three of us on Christmas morning. Santa brought Addie a kitchen and she LOVED it. She has been cooking many items since then. Jeremy got me one of the BEST gifts I have ever received!!! He built a table for his Executive Director, Joe, at his work. (Check out his blog to see pictures of it.) I thought all along that it was a surprise to Joe from his wife and she would be paying him. Well Joe's wife is a watercolor artist and they bartered and she painted a portrait of our family. We have it hanging in our living room. I don't know how he will top that one!
On Christmas afternoon we headed over to Anthony and Jenny's house and that night my parent's arrived for a visit for a few days.
We had a busy month, but made wonderful memories! Having a child in the house makes Christmas even more special. It is a wonderful holiday to celebrate the Christ-child! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas as well! Enjoy some pictures. I'll try to post some cute videos soon. STAY WARM!!!
Shashi (the owner of her daycare) got Addie this cute bunny backpack that had 3 books in it
Playing with "Aunt Leigh" at her mom's house on Christmas Eve
Christmas morning...Needless to say, she LOVED her kitchen!
Checking out her stocking
Leigh made Addie this apron for Christmas. One side is for cooking and the other is for art. It is sooo cute! I told her to sell these suckers! She laughed and said it took a long time!
Having fun! (Jeremy cut me off...oops) I think she liked it! I think she thought the dough was play-dough. :)
At Jenny and Anthony's house on Christmas Day. Here's Addie jamming on Uncle Anthony's drums.
