Addy's First Christmas: Take One

Addy is such a lucky little lady.  She gets to have multiple Christmas's in multiple places this year!  Mike and I decided to do our little family Christmas on Tuesday because that was the last day that we had off together before we head up to PA for Christmas.

So we woke up and opened our gifts and then headed out to breakfast....yup that same breakfast where I proceeded to spill a full glass of OJ down Addy's face and all over her cute velvet Christmas outfit.   Merry Christmas Addy...Mommy is a clutz!

Here are a couple of photos of our Christmas decor for those of you who won't be able to see it in person:

Santa has arrived!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care....
(And that wrapped gift box on the floor is the one we put Addy in for our family Christmas pics.)

Notice who popped in to enjoy the view?

We decided to get cozy and light a fire on Monday night during the Steelers game.  Too bad the outcome of the game was so painful.

Dining Room....Not very exciting, I know.

View from the Kitchen out to the Living Room

Here's what made it to our fridge.  I love that "Days till Christmas" counter on the left.  It gives me great joy to change the number every morning.  It's the little things ;)

So, now that you all have a visual of our home at Christmas, let's get on to the fun stuff!

First things first.  Stockings:

Look at Addy's little hands cupped around her gift :)  Of course, she wouldn't crack a smile so I called for reinforcements....

One guess as to who is standing to my right when I snapped this pic.  Yup, her beloved Daddy of course :)

Ha ha, her stocking is almost as big as she is!

One of her favorite stocking stuffers was that yellow ball.  In this pic it's hard to tell but she's waving it around by one of its strings.

Of course there is an "Addy's First Christmas" video too!

I'm gonna stop this post here, because if I don't it could go on and on and on. 

Next up, gift opening at our house!  See you then!
