Christmas Day 2011

Looks like someone was a good girl this year!!

WOW! Look at all this great stuff......Thanks Santa!

Checking out all the fun things that Santa brought!

DORA stickers!! She was thrilled with all the Dora stuff.

This little girl LOVES her candy canes. Hehe.

She sure does have a death grip on those candy canes.

Loving what Santa brought her.....a pink play kitchen!

Setting up her golf set. Daddy's little golfer.

Such a happy girl on Christmas morning.

She was REALLY getting into unwrapping her gifts.

Showing Grandma Kathy how to open up presents the right way. LOL.

Daddy and Uncle Chad were THRILLED to see that they got some new socks!

Checking out her Noah's ark from Uncle Chad.

Sometimes the boxes can be more fun than what's in it apparently. :-)

Having lots of fun on her new bean bag chair.

Quiet moment with Grandma Jill.

Nice stink face! She's such a little lady.

Serious boy Levi and his happy G.G.

G.G. and her boy Levi.

Lots of kisses to go around.

G.G. and two of her four great grandchildren.

Maddie loves her "mimmie." Thanks G.G.!

Opening presents with cousin Levi.

So cute!! Levi didn't mind the bow on his head one bit, but the bow stuck to his hand was another story. Hehehe.

Nice hat, Madison Rose!

Daddy was waving a piece of cardboard causing quite the breeze. Madison LOVED it!!!

Having fun with Daddy!

Seeing the occasional smile from Levi....he can be such a serious boy sometimes. :-)

Maddie wanted to play with Levi. Don't think he really understood the idea. Hehehe.

Two cousins in their Christmas jammies.

We had a terrific day with family on Christmas day this year....minus the MAJOR bummer that Grandma Jill was quite sick and in bed most of the day. We were SUPER excited to see Madison and her expressions this year on Christmas morning as she saw what Santa brought her. After some time together with just Mommy, Daddy, and Maddie, Grandma Kathy, Grandpa John, and Uncle Chad came over for brunch. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast casserole, sticky buns, and fruit and then spent some time opening gifts. Once again, Maddie thoroughly enjoyed opening gifts and playing with some of her new toys.

After her nap, we headed down to Great Granny's house for more Christmas fun. We were joined by Grandpa Randy, Uncle Kevin, Aunt Beth, Uncle Brian, Jennifer, Nathan, and cousin Levi. Unfortunately Grandma Jill was pretty sick and was only able to join us for a short while until she needed to head back to bed. Together we spent the afternoon opening gifts, enjoying each other's company, and eating (of course!). Always a great time together!


  1. I need all of these pics. Her stink face is so stinking cute.

  2. So fun! I loved what Chad got her. I didn't even know Fisher Price had that for sale. We are reading Noahs Ark to Gideon right now, so I will have to get that for him as well!
