Christmas night with Papa and Nannie

Christmas night we went to my parents house to eat. We had steaks, baked potatoes, corn, bread, cake and cookies. Yummy! Then we opened gifts. Allie had a big one that's for sure!!!

Allie got this Cozy Coupe from my mom and dad. It will be fun to play with when it gets warmer...Definitely an outside toy!

Opening some puzzles from Nannie and Papa.

She really likes this one. A little big though.

Papa and Allie.
Papa bought this video camera just to film Allie. Funny how they never bought one to film us growing up. :)

Shelly and Alex.

Me and Matt. Like my sweater??? It was one of my gifts from Matt. He did well.

A dress from Nannie and Papa.

Allie got a coat and hat from my parents as well. Here she is with the hat.
See ya!

Santa loves Poo-Poos too!!!

Santa "really" visited our house this year and it was very exciting. Allie didn't know what to think but she finally warmed up and enjoyed her gifts.

All set up for Allie to see.

I think stockings are so neat and I hope Santa always remembers to make them fun. This year Allie got a lot in her stocking...Dora and Boots bath puffs and soap, a princess flashlight, M&Ms, stickers, a princess hairbrush and a book.

She loved the slide.

Daddy giving a helping hand showing off Allie's pretty new outfit.

"Let's see what's in this thing."

Matt dumping out his stocking.

He got a jacket from me.
And a vest...and more but it's not pictured...

Just a pajama morning.

Christmas at MawMaw and PawPaw's

Christmas Eve we spend at MawMaw and PawPaw's. It's always a lot of fun and the more kids that get into the mix the crazier it gets.

Allie playing with a book waiting on others to arrive.

All the kiddos waiting on MawMaw and PawPaw to bring out the presents.

William and Allie. Allie is trying to give him a hug...I think.

Aubrey was so quiet most of the night.

An early gift...

I bought Allie some Christmas pajamas to wear Christmas Eve so I went ahead and let her open them early in the day. She loves Dora so I though these were appropriate...

Fun with Aunt Shelly

Tuesday nights Shelly, my sister, comes over to eat and visit while her husband bowls in a league. So this Tuesday night I decided that the three of us would decorate a gingerbread house and decorate her tree.

Shelly and Allie getting started...

Allie finally warmed up to it...

O' Christmas Tree...


Matt's good friend Aaron Gabardi is in town for Christmas and they always look forward to spending some time together. So, Monday after a long day of golfing they got the girls', his (Elise) and Allie together to play. They had so much fun and I think it makes these two best pals, Matt and Aaron, happy to see their little girls have so much fun together. Here's a few pics...
