Amelia and I looked through our stockings this morning. Daddy wouldn't get up to join us! Santa brought Amelia all sorts of things:
She seemed to like her mini sock monkey and spoon instrument (you play it on your knees) the best:
Amelia was exhausted this morning:
I ended up having to put her down for a nap so I could finish eating my breakfast and she was out like a light in no time. We finished getting ready and had to get her up to get her ready. She was not happy about having to get into her Christmas dress:
I felt so bad for her :(
You wouldn't have known we were in the middle of a Christmas "blizzard" by this sight:
Yep. He is out there shoveling the driveway in sandals.
We were second to arrive at Grandpa Peterson's house. Nothing in particular went on for a few hours. Everyone just hung out, talking and eating. Amelia did better with present opening today than last night. She ate her presents:
Played with paper and boxes:
She scoped out her gifts (that we ended up having to open for her...):
Amelia was having some trouble crawling in her fancy Christmas dress:
I changed her into her "Baby's First Christmas" outfit from Auntie Kimmie so she could be a bit more mobile. As you saw, crawling in a slippery dress was pretty much impossible for her!
Amelia sat at the table with us for Christmas dinner:
She kept kicking her legs so hard that she shook the table. I am shocked no one's drink spilled with the way the table was shaking!
After dinner, Amelia crawled around and kept us all on our toes. She liked climbing on Davey:
She kept trying to get his new cell phone from him:
I thought it was cute when he asked where she was, so he could take her picture with his new phone...to show all his friends. No joke. That is what he told me.
Here is Amelia with her Auntie Liz and Kory (and their dog, Cashew):
(hey guys...Cashew seems to be licking Amelia in this picture!)
Cashew passed out during gift opening on a pile of new towels...
...and didn't wake up when he slid off the pile!
Amelia had one of her new books read to her by her Grandma Rude:
We had another good day today. Hopefully everyone else did too!
Merry Christmas to all!
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
