Our Christmas 12/25/08

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

I had every intention to post this video over the weekend, but we have been very busy. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We had a great Christmas. This year was so much fun with Melissa. Last year she was only 6 months old and didn't know what was going on. This year Melissa loved everything about Christmas. DD flew in on Tuesday and stayed with us until Friday. Our Christmas Eve was nice, we stayed home and made Santa Cookies. Melissa helped us with that. She loved eating the cookie dough and the icing! That night Paul read us the Christmas story and then it was time for bed, but before bed we had to make sure the cookies and milk where out for Santa.

Christmas morning started early for us (6:30am) Melissa has been having sleeping problems. That's another post coming soon. Melissa wasn't sure at first what was going on, but it didn't take her long to get in to opening up gifts. Santa brought her a Kitchen with play food, two Elmo videos, a toddler Bible and a new blanket. Other gifts she got where lots of books, a new piano, microphone, Basketball goal (from us), a rocking chair and other things. I tell you she is spoiled already!

Paul and I got some neat things also. I got a lot of kitchen items that I asked for. Since I cook at least 3 meals a day I needed some new items. Melissa got me a gift certificate for a Facial! Yeah Melissa you know Mommy needs to take care of herself. Paul got book, movies, lots of Starbucks gift cards.

After Melissa's nap we headed to Paul's sister for Christmas Dinner. Melissa got more gifts at Aunt Maggie's and Uncle Kevin's. She got her 1st tea set, her 1st apron. She got another gift that I need to take back because she already had this toy. It was a special day that Melissa got to spend Christmas with both her grandmothers. All in all we had a wonderful Christmas week spending it with family.

We look forward to a great 2009.

Here is the video, sorry it's long!
