Christmas Day!!

We had such a fun Christmas with Kyndall this year. She still didn't quite get what was going on, but she thought it was pretty fun to play with all these new toys and have all of our company visit and play with her. She was really good at handing out the stockings and gifts to everyone, but she really wanted to open her presents and play immediately. So it was hard to peel her away from her new toy(s) to open more presents! She is growing up so fast, it was amazing to see her starting to act out what she is supposed to do with her gifts. She got a Rose Petal Cottage to play in and would use her oven mitts to bake her muffins in her little stove, she would put her baby "night, night" in the cradle, and she would go in and out of the little cottage like she was in her own little world! She also got a lot of baby accessories: stroller, baby swing, playmat, diaper bag, and pack'n'play for her dolls. We thought she might use these when Mommy is using those for her baby sister Avery, but she got right to work playing with them....she already knew what to do with cute! She also got some blocks and a vbaby video game, some really cute clothes and a set of musical instruments to play with(which she loves!) Thanks to all the family and friends who made our Christmas so special. We are so blessed to have all of you in our lives!!!

Fun with Family

Here are some pictures of the fun we have been having with Gramps and Gram Garth and Popo and Grammie. They came here for Christmas, and I will be posting more pics of all of us together. Kyndall likes to play on the computer, try on Gramps's shoes, walk around the kitchen with Gramps, and sit in front of the Christmas tree in her pretty dress!

Santa Claus

Today Kyndall went to visit Santa Claus and Take her annual picture. I have been taking her to "see" him from a distance since November. I thought that might make her a little more happy to get her picture taken with such luck! When we got there she smiled at him and even waved at him, but had a death grip on my shirt. Then we went up to him and talked to him for a second and I thought maybe she might just look at him a little timidly. So I set her on his lap and she just screamed and cried and said "no, no". Then I picked her up and she looked at him and waved and said, "bye, bye". She even smiled at him afterward, but I guess it was just a little too much to actually sit on his lap! I guess everyone needs a santa picture where they are crying....
