what an awesome Christmas we had! it was so nice to wake up in our home on Christmas morning, something we have not done in all the time we have been married. i really think that BellaRose had a great time. she loved all the tissue paper in her presents. worth and i did not go big this year for her since she really has no idea what is going on. we sort of felt bad at first, but then we saw how much fun she was having with the wrapping paper that we knew it was okay. look at that cool wagon she got from T-Love and Big Papa (worth's parents). she also really loved the ornament on the tree. what do you think of her stocking? pretty cool huh?





here is the new puppy that Worth's sister's family got. he is a labradoddle and SO cute! his name is Max. Him and BellaRose got along super well, i guess since they are the same size and all.

we went to Greenville on "Boxing Day" (the day after Christmas). i really have no idea what "Boxing Day" means. maybe it is a British thing b/c i heard Andrew explaining it, but i did not hear the reason. it was really nice to extend Christmas just one more day. it is sad that Christmas is over. it comes and goes so quickly it seems. i hope that you enjoyed yours as much as we enjoyed ours. until next year!

Sunday I am behond proud of you for not going all out on BellaRose's first Christmas.. I think that is wonderful because they really love the wrapping and tissue paper and boxes the best anyway at this age. I watched my "soon to be" (I hope) nieces and nephews get bored with opening all their presents.. ages 7,3,2 and 1... so I'm proud of you for not doing that. Plus can't you remember playing in your mom's cabinets with the pots and pans?!? Or that random box you made into a playhouse or hole in the groud that became your hottub? (sorry I started reminessing on my past).

Thanks for sharing your Christmas stories with us! Looks like a great time. I know what you mean about the whole holiday going by so quick. I thinking that exact thing this evening, as I drove by houses with twinkling lights and wreaths still hung. It is crazy how in just one day, it is all 'poof', over! Until next year...

Sunday...what camera do you use? You get great pictures. I LOVE the size of my digital, but the flash isn't the greatest.

How precious she is. Just wait until the grands can't stop buying her gifts, hopefully you have set a precedent already.
So glad you guys had such a sweet time together. What a precious family you are.

Boxing Day is a holiday in Britain , Canada etc. where, a long time ago, people used to give thier sernvants, household help, whatever, presents. In boxes. I love your tree story, ours was so ALIVE that it drank 3 holders full of water, and it was 8 feet tall! I felt guilty taking it down because it was still going strong! We got it from a guy who has a nursery in Burnsville.
