Katie's First Christms

Katie had a wonderful first Christmas. We traveled down to Hot Springs on the 23rd and stayed through the 26th with Grandma and Grandpa (Matt's parents). Katie got to spend lots of time with her Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie Shell, Uncle Nick, and three cousins (Abi, Brandon, and Camryn). She had a great time...

This first picture is of the three girls on the couch.

This is a picture of Katie sitting in her Daddy's old carseat on Christmas Eve. She loved sitting in there!!

Here is our sweet little family on Christmas Day at Auntie Sherial's house (Matt's aunt).

Mischelle and I decided to dress all the kids up in Santa costumes for pictures! They were definitely a hit!

Here is Miss Katie in her Daddy's lap on Christmas morning. He was reading her one of the books that Santa brought her :o)

Two of Katie's favorite presents were her Musical/Glowing Seahorse from "Santa" and her first Cabbage Patch doll from Grandma. She loves them both very much!

Even though little miss was only 7.5 weeks old on her first Christmas, it was still one of the best holidays yet. She slept through a lot of it, but I know she enjoyed every minute - especially all the loving and cuddling she received from various family members! She is one blessed little girl.
We sure enjoyed getting Katie's presents ready for Christmas morning and carrying her into the living room and letting her see what "Santa" brought her. It was such a special day! I am really looking forward to the coming years with Miss Priss... to see her crawling, walking, tearing open presents, making cookies for Santa, and all the other fun stuff that comes with Christmas time. Matt and I adore Katie so much and feel so blessed that God allowed US to be her parents.

Awe, she is such a sweetie. The Santa outfits crack me up! The boy on the end looks a lot like Matt(your Matt) to me. Merry Christmas!! When do you go back to work?

Oh, thank you for sharing all the pictures. I SO enjoyed spending time with Katie and just getting to sit in the rocker and love on her. And, don't forget that she really liked the Christmas lights on the tree. {:o)
