I take a kazillion pictures. Seriously, way too many to count! Here are a few highlights from Christmas Eve, which is when we open our gifts from one another. Here's Tiffany (five months old) and her Christmas bow~it didn't last long. She can wiggle out of it pdq!
Emma with Keaton and his girlfriend, Tina.
The annual Christmas Eve photo.
Emma's room is decorated with daisies and ladybugs. When she saw this ladybug pillow in the mall, she exclaimed, "Giffy! Tiffany needs that pillow!" So Emma gave it to Tiffany for Christmas. (Indy and Wylie also got new beds, and Santa filled all three dogs' stockings with toys and treats. Yes, I am just that crazy! LOL)
Emma wanted her own laptop for Christmas! Guess you can tell we are a totally nerdy family, always on our computers. LOL Uncle Keaton gave her this pretty pink laptop loaded with learning games. She was thrilled!
When we were at Disneyland last summer, Brennan had this painting made for Emma~it's her name spelled out with the princesses!
We gave Emma Bitty Baby's changing table and everything that goes with it.
I am friends with our vet, Beth. Emma and Beth have a special friendship. Emma is enamored with Beth and her "Dr. Beth tools." It wouldn't surprise me at all if she grows up to be a vet! Mommy gave her a "Dr. Emma" vet kit. Emma loves it!
Emma gave her mommy a coffee maker. I love this picture. Emma is so proud of herself!
We gave Brittany a nook e-reader. Well, more like a certificate saying she will get it soon. We're still waiting for it to be shipped from Barnes and Noble. (I got one, too! Yippee!)
We gave Brennan a Blu-ray player.
We gave Keaton a backpacking tent and sleeping bag.
Here we are, still sweethearts after all of these years!
And here's one of my favorite shots of the evening. Emma put out milk and cookies for Santa, as well as oatmeal for the reindeer. She stared at the plate for a minute and then said, "Mommy, can I have a sip of Santa's milk?"
What a blessed holiday!
