Our Two Christmases!!!

We had two wonderful Christmases this year! The first one was Bella's first white Christmas and was in West Virginia with Marc's family. It was a wonderful time and Bella loved all the attention and especially playing with her cousin Gianna. Dress-up was one of there many favorite pastimes!

PopPop reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas"

Would have been the perfect picture..... minus bunny, bunny!

Aunt Katrina bought the girls precious dresses to wear on Christmas and I got a glimpse into what it is going to be like to get two children to sit and smile at the camera at the same time..... pretty much impossible!

The snow starting on Christmas Eve.

The next morning Bella woke up at 4:30AM.... Marc and I didn't really mind because we got a lot of cuddling in but by the time we took her downstairs at 6:30 she was ready to go..... eat snow that is. She started to eat it off the logs Marc brought in for the fire and then I decided to just get her a cup full. She loved it.

The first snowman I ever remembering making... yeah, I know its a sorry lookin' snowman but I'm from Texas.... give me a break!

Then at 7:ooAM right as the rest of the fam was coming down for Christmas morning, Bella crashed and took a quick cat nap.

Just rockin'

I LOVE this picture!

Then came Christmas in Texas with my family. Santa got Bella a ball tent and chair.


The gifts started out reasonable...
... but then soon got out of control. Notice Bella is walled in by her own presents!

My parents gave Bella this climber and it was a HIT!

Bella thought the baby buggy was for her... to heck with those stuffed babies!

We hope you all had a blessed Christmas!!!
