Natalie's first Christmas

What we did for Christmas this year was we opened gifts from my mom and dad on Christmas Eve and went to Matt's parents and opened everything else there on Christmas day. Later we went over to Tyra's to open more gifts and finally ended up at Matt's grandparents for dinner and yet more gifts. Here are the pictures we took. Enjoy!

Natalie got Leapfrog's My Pal Violet from Grandma and Grandpa Empey

Ready or not....

Wow! A lot has happened since my last blog and yet it doesn't seem like that much. The biggest thing I think that has happened is Natalie has found her feet! Yup that's right she is walking. See?

She Likes to carry stuff around with her too. She has gotten into her teddy bears a lot lately. He has a ton of them too. I'm no help in that regard, I collect teddy bears. So she has hers and mine to play with. My mom even sends me a new bear for Christmas each year. this year she sent me a "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" bear. He sits on the edge of the couch and will read the entire story. Natalie loves it. she will sit there and actually listen to it and want to hear it again and again. Natalie also loves the Jingle bear my mom sent I believe last year. It plays Jingle bells.

This year for Christmas I decorated with snowflakes. And it is our first year with stockings!

I am so excited to see Natalie open presents. She will be an expert for her birthday next month.

Anyway Happy holidays to all and Do please have a Very Merry Christmas!
