holiday cheer at home.

I have been anticipating Our first Christmas as a family of 3 since the day I found out I was pregnant. I was looking forward to all of the family time, presents, traditions, and wonderful memories.

Aubree's first Christmas was so wonderful and memory filled, so much so I can't wait till next year!!

One of the traditions of Christmas is making cookies for Santa. I couldn't wait to do this with Aubree, and of course she had to help!

Since I was little we have always gotten to open one presents on Christmas Eve and it was always new holiday pajamas. So Aubree had to get in on the jamma time fun! :) Her Christmas pajamas were precious! Love the ruffles.

I knew Aubree was going to get TONS of presents, but OMGoodness!! she got so much cool stuff! The mound of gifts was a reassurance of how blessed we are to have the family we do.

Oh! And she was a pro at opening them!

This is one of her favorite toys... Ellee the Elephant that blows balls in the air. :)

This Christmas was so wonderful. One of my favorite quotes comes to mind when I think about it.
"Don't cry that it's over, smile because it happened."

  3. I made Christmas cookies with my children and have continued the tradition with my grandchildren. One of the sweetest compliments I have ever received was my granddaughter telling me that her favorite thing about Christmas was making cookies with me. Your little girl is precious. Happy New Year!
