Santa baby

Christmas is over. The tree is down. The halls have been undecked and now we are packing up to head to KC. We leave on Saturday, but I am not ready to think about that yet. My head is still floating in cranberries, candy canes, and Bing Crosby.

Bennett had a wonderful first Christmas at her cousins house. Santa thought she was a very good girl this year, but really, she just liked the paper. In fact, Santa could have brought her a roll of wrapping paper and she would have been in heaven. The fun fact about this weekend is that she walked!!! If you hold on to her hands, she can easily walk from the couch to the table or from one side of her crib to the other. She isn't just kicking in place, but taking steps. And she can walk the length of her pack and play and the back again holding on to the sides. Very exciting!

Here are a few shots from our week. And oh yeah, ROB'S HOME! That was the best present of all.

The night before we headed to my sister's house, we took Bennett to the zoo to see the lights with my parents. It was rather cold that night so we had to bust out her KC outerwear a little early.

My sister reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas" to all the girls. What are we going to do if this new baby is a boy? He's going to hate family get togethers.

Bennett checking out the loot from Santa.

Getting a Christmas morning kiss. Kisses and cheerios. There's not much better than that.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas is extra special because Daddy's home.

Looks like you had a fun Christmas. Glad you were able to enjoy it with all your family. I can't believe you will be leaving on Saturday. Crazy. Sorry we weren't able to get together, but I know you had tons of people to visit. You will definitely have to keep your blog updated for us. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

:) My Bennett was the first boy with a sister and 4 girl cousins. Thankfully he has a boy now, but he is just 14 months so we have a while before they can gang up on all of the girls.
