Christmas 2011

All in all we had a great Christmas this year!

We started the morning at our house and woke Gabriella up to come see what was under the Christmas tree. She wasn't too sure about the giant Dora doll until daddy started hugging it.

Dora helped Gabriella open all her gifts. She was especially excited about getting Dora nail polish :)

Matt with his flip-flops I got him (I always find something hilariously outrageous to put in his stocking!)

He cheered up after he opened all his presents

Us girls got ready and then Matt's entire family came over to our house for breakfast and gift exchange. After that we were off to my parents house for the rest of the day (and some naps!)

Ariella got some full-bodied footie pajamas and immediately put them on over her clothes. 

Gabriella toting around the doggies that she got from Aunt Linda & Uncle Steve. When she opened the package she kissed each dog on the head. 

Opening her giant present from Gramma Sandy and Grampa Doug. It was bigger than her!

Baking a snack for Dora in her kitchen (her present from Gramma and Grampa)

Ariella was super excited for her Jonas Bros pin and bracelet set from Jonny & April. 
(She is planning on marrying Kevin Jonas)

Grampa and Gabriella playing in her pop-up tent! 

April and Ariella joining in for tent play time!

Jonathan's terrible blister from burning his foot on Friday. We kept joking about if my water would break before his blister did (sadly, neither one has yet). 

April ate a little too much sugar. She turned on Jonny with a 2lb peppermint stick

Our tree on Christmas morning. 

This Christmas was a lot different that any previous ones. We were a little apprehensive about it, but as usual, God had other plans. I was blessed to be able to spend Christmas with my sweet girlie (we were worried about baby brother arriving today), we got to see our whole families and we all had a wonderful time celebrating family and the birth of Jesus. I am SO thankful that He came to earth to love on us and to bless up with His gift of life!
