Our Christmas and New Year's

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. On Christmas Eve we made cookies for Santa and then a Birthday Cake for Jesus. Melissa had fun making the cookies. That evening we went to the Christmas Eve service at our Church. As we got ready to head to Church the weather was getting bad outside. After Church we came home and got ready for Santa to come. We sat out the cookies and milk and then Paul read the Christmas story to us. Melissa has a Fisher Prices Little People Nativity Set and she loved playing with it this year. She took well care of Baby Jesus. As we tucked Melissa in to bed on Christmas Eve we looked out the window to see if we could see Santa.

Christmas morning she woke up not early thank goodness. The first thing she said was did Santa come see me? She was so happy to see the fun gifts Santa had brought her. Paul and I had fun watching her opening up the gifts and just seeing her face light up every time she would open up a new gift. This year was really fun with Melissa and I know next year will even be better. We also woke up to 1 inch of snow on Christmas morning. That was nice to see, wish it were more. After opening up all the gifts Melissa thought it was time to head outside and play in the snow. She had a blast walking around looking at the snow and even making a small snowman. The rest of the day we just stayed home and enjoyed playing with Melissa.

The day after Christmas some of my cousins came into town so we got to hang out with them. Melissa loves getting all the attention because she is the youngest one

We packed our bags and head out to West Texas on December 30th to visit my family. We stayed at my moms (DD) house. On New Year's Day my sister Peyton and brother in-law Alex came over and we had our Christmas with them. Peyton and Alex are expecting twins around the first part of April. I can not wait to meet my nephew and niece. Melissa was confused about her baby cousins being in Auntie Peyt’s tummy.
Then later on that afternoon my grandmother Mema, step grandfather Bill and my mom’s friend Robby came over for dinner. We had a fun time visiting with everyone.

We had a nice holiday this past year and look forward to seeing what 2010 will bringing us. We hope you all have a wonderful 2010.
