Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all of our family and friends! We've had a great few days and hope that you have too!

This is the first year that TinyDancer has really understood what Christmas is and what happens on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. It has been a blast seeing the magic of Christmas through her eyes. If you asked her what she wanted for Christmas, here is what she would say:
1. A purple guitar with a purple string
2. A pink guitar with a pink string (to use in case one of her friends comes over and they want to play music together)
3. A Belle costume and Belle shoes
4. A pink stroller (she saw one in the window at Pottery Barn Kids and just *had* to have one. Nevermind that she already has 3 strollers!)

On Christmas Eve, we went to mass with Grandma and Grandpa and then came home to a delicious dinner. Our menu - Inside out ravioli, salad, and garlic bread. Yum! By the time that we finished, it was time to get everything ready for Santa (cookies, milk, carrots) and then get to bed.

On Christmas morning, TinyDancer actually slept until 7:45! Woo hoo!! Once she was up, she was up! Here are some highlights from our morning:

Reaching way down to see what is inside!

A box full of ponies from Mommy.

A Belle costume and a pink stroller.

A scooter - which was promptly taken outside to be tried out!

A purple guitar with a purple string and a pink guitar with a white string! We've been jamming out for two days!

Sometimes TinyDancer jams as TinyDancer.....and sometimes she jams as Belle.

And a Polly Pocket Mall! How cool is that?!

After we had opened all of our presents at home on Christmas morning, we got dressed and when to SleepingAngel's special park and left an angel on her marker and added some more ornaments to her tree. I forgot to bring my camera to the cemetary - we'll have to add a picture later.

Then we went to Grandma and Grandpa's for more presents. Yay!

Today we spent the day at Grandma and Grandpa's again - this time with TinyDancer's cousin and Aunts and Uncles.

Lastly, here is a shot of TinyDancer in her special Christmas dress:
