Our new stockings (from Ugly Sofa) were hung by the chimney with care. Good thing because slacker first-time parents didn't decorate for Christmas at ALL otherwise!
Kate visited Santa - twice.
|This is NOT my Daddy!|
|Let me run!|
Santa brought Kate more than a few lovely gifts. A new toybox, iPad cover, pajamas, mirror, outfits, shoes, hats, coat, stroller and car seat travel covers, humidifier, pillow pet, and more awaited her "under the stockings."
Kate also received wonderful and thoughtful gifts from Auntie Patty & Uncle Jim, Auntie Jackie, and Auntie Christina. Opening them was a bit of a challenge this year, but she loved all of it!
She spent plenty of time being precious and looking cute as always.

|Thankfully Kate's grandparents had Christmas trees for her to adore.|
|Cute even with a massive scratch on her eye/nose. Awesome.|
And the best part . . . our first WHITE CHRISTMAS in North Texas for about thirty years. It must've been just for our baby girl.
|Protective Daddy kept saying "Hurry. It's too cold," |
as if I didn't have her bundled up! :)
As I entered Kate's room Christmas morning, I was greeted by a beautiful little angel lying in her crib with a huge smile on her face. Thus began this Mommy's first tears of this blessed day. While Jesus was born this day and saved us all, my precious daughter brightened my world in an instant. I'm constantly overwhelmed by the love I have for her and my heart continues to grow and grow and grow. Often I wonder if my heart will explode.
We are a very blessed family.
