Merry Christmas Day 2013

SANTA CAME!  SANTA CAME!!  SANTA CAME!!!  How in the world did he get THAT down our chimney?!?!  "WOW!!!" were Allie's first words when she set eyes on this big red car.

Allie has been hoping and hoping that Santa would bring her a "red power car."  Every time she saw Santa at the mall she asked him for a red car (on behalf of her brother too).  Every time someone asked her what she wanted for Christmas..."A red car!" was her response.  Allie knew if she got a car from Santa it would be RED...because red is Santa's favorite color.

 
 
Santa also brought a couple extra goodies.  A new bag and lunch bag for Ayden.  His lunch bag will come in handy when he heads to day care in the next month here (uhhhh...so sad).
 



Allie got a bag too with a couple new movies and a helmet.  Santa probably wants Allie to be safe riding around in her new car.

 
 
Our stockings were sitting on the chair and had LOTS of goodies in them! A new Mr. SANTA Potato Head too!!!
 



Allie hopped in the car as soon as she saw it!  In fact, she hopped IN and OUT of her car about a million times on Christmas day.  She just loved putting ALL her toys in the car with her.  She pretended to drive different places with all her toys...ALL DAY LONG!




Allie's stocking stuffers...a new book for her Tag Reader, headbands, ponytail holders, conditioner, an Olga's gift card (Allie's favorit...snackers), a DVD, hairspray (for when we curl Allie's hair), vitamins, lotion, and LOTS of candy!  ...and a new toothbrush for when she eats that candy.

 




Allie helped Ayden dump out his stocking.  Santa left Ayden some baby food, a couple new pacifiers, some packages of wipes, and super soft and cuddly blankie to sleep with...and a new cuddly teddy bear too.




Allie can't wait to take her brother for a spin around the block when it gets warmer...and he gets bigger!  VROOM!

 
 
Christmas breakfast this year was a SNOWMAN BAGEL...bagels with cream cheese is one of Allie's new favorite foods for breakfast.
 



This year I often reminded Allie the reason for celebrating Christmas...Jesus' birthday.  This year was the first time we made Jesus a birthday cake and sang Happy Birthday to him. Allie blew out the candle, of course. Our cake was a "Poke-A-Hole Cake"...you poke holes in the cake and pour red and green Jell-O in the pan. It's makes a very festive red and green cake!  Cool Whip frosting and lots of red and greed sprinkles and M&M's!


 
 
 


Merry 1st Christmas, Ayden!  Your first Christmas memories will forever be locked away in my heart.  I hope this sweet boy got everything he hoped for...I know I did (I got you!)
