Recent Memories {Christmas}

Ok, so now on to my promised Christmas post (Beware: picture overload about to happen)...
We had a very busy and beautiful Christmas vacation! For the first time Brent was able to have a long break as well, so that meant lots of traveling for us. Before we started our travels, we celebrated Christmas with Nana, Pa and Brent's side of the family.

(mesmerized by Elmo...cracks me up!)
Since my sisters and I are all spread out, we are rarely all in the same place at the same time. This year we made a point to all be in Houston for Christmas. Such a blessing for the whole family to be together!
Our Christmas Eve tradition is to open one present (which is a set of new PJs,) read the Night Before Christmas and read the Christmas Story from the Bible. Papa does the reading, and this year Maddie snuggled up to read with him in her new PJs...
And like any child, when Christmas morning came, Maddie was all about opening presents! She even enjoyed helping Aunt Gelly pass the out! I love the first picture below because she looks so sweet just waiting for us to say, "Go!"

Needless to say Baby Girl was spoiled like crazy! That evening we headed home to Waco to do our Family of 3 Christmas. And no, Madison was not bored of opening presents! She dug in to the pile she got from us and from our St. Louis family!

Next stop on our Christmas vacation: Keystone, Colorado.
To be continued...
