Madison's First Christmas

Just hanging out with the presents under our tree.

She was VERY into checking out this gift!

"Hmmmmmmm....wonder who this one is for?"

I just can't get over how cute she is!

Just had to get a picture of her little reindeer butt!

"Is it time to open presents yet??"

Merry Christmas from the Pepper Family!


"A Santa just my size!"

"What do we have here Santa?"

She was really interested in this little moving Santa.

She was definitely a spoiled little girl.

"Hmmmmm....What's in here?"

Working hard at unwrapping her gifts.

"Who is that pretty girl looking at me?"

Enjoying one of her new toys.

She was REALLY into the ribbon and wrapping paper.

Kim, Me, Maddie, and Faye. Last year we had a photo much like this except Maddie was inside.

Checking out her loot from Santa on Christmas morning.

My First Christmas.

Mommy and Maddie ready to head to Grandma and Grandpa's.

Wide awake and ready to celebrate Christmas with more family.

Maddie enjoyed playing with her "cousin" Trenton.

Madison seemed to really LOVE her first Christmas. And what fun we had celebrating it with her. Christmas Eve was spent at Grandma Jill and Grandpa Randy's house. We celebrated the evening with Uncle Kevin, Great Granny, and Great Grandma and Grandpa. After a fabulous Christmas dinner Maddie began to dive into her MANY, MANY gifts. We can easily say she was a VERY spoiled little girl. :-) She eventually became bored with the opening of the presents and found that the wrapping paper was far more fun to play with than the toys, clothes, and radio flyer wagon that she got. We ended the evening going to our Christmas Eve service at church. Maddie was definitely a little trooper as the service didn't start until WAY past her bedtime. She quickly fell asleep in the car on the return ride home.

We woke up Christmas morning to our stockings filled by Santa. We also had a short visit from Grandma Jill, as Santa had also stopped at her house and filled even more stockings. I know, I know....what a spoiled child?!?! Well she only has her first Christmas once so we really had to make it a special one.

After Maddie had checked out what Santa had brought her, we headed over to Grandma Kathy and Grandpa John's house to enjoy more Christmas festivities with John's family. There were a total of 20 of us there enjoying a fabulous dinner and each others company. Maddie enjoyed playing with her "cousins" Trenton (9 months old) and Shae (2 years old) while others enjoyed playing Ping Pong!

It surely seems as though Christmas came and went so quickly this year! And what fun it was to celebrate with our little girl. We look forward to the many Christmas' to come.
