Merry Christmas!

I'm just taking a moment to update the grandma Faye Wine passed away yesterday afternoon after a long battle with cancer. We were so lucky to get one last Christmas and it was so extra special for all of us! We had more family in that house than we've had in a long time!! Here are just a few pictures from our holiday festivities!

Merry Christmas! I haven't had a chance to do Christmas cards or even slightly edit/look at the pictures I've taken of Abigail so you'll probably see them here in the next couple weeks as I get caught's one that I thought was so sweet.

Grandpa kept teasing poor Abigail with cookies!

My child was introduced to the nastiest thing this weekend...oysters! But she loved them! Weird little kid :)


Opening a present from Grandma Faye...

A baby doll of course!!

She loved her and promptly wrapped her in blankie and made sure she was warm :)

Hugging a bear at the big Lodge in town...

The gingerbread houses were a hit! She wanted the candy (so did mama :)

Doesn't the sky look like it's on fire? Gorgeous!

These guys were having too much fun at the Dirty Santa game :)

What a group!

My cousin Jake...isn't he just darling?

Here's a side profile of me so you can see how biiiiig I'm getting :) Doesn't help that I have bad posture and a baggy sweater the camera adds 10 pounds right??

Presents Presents Presents!!

Abigail really scored big this year! Barbies, cookie jars, nativity scenes, baby dolls and a kitchen! *Someone* thought she was a good girl this year :)

The big reveal of the kitchen! I don't know who was more excited...Abigail or daddy!

She couldn't believe it! A real kitchen? Just for me? Amazing!

Daddy loves loves loves it too!!

Daddy just let me play!!

First things first...wash your hands!

Hmmm....what do I want to eat??

Then we opened a present from Grammy and Papa!

A nativity scene just for me!

She carefully dumped everything out and started arranging!

And with a little help from mom, all was set up!

Kisses for baby is His birthday afterall!

Aunt Katie and Uncle Matt came for a day and brought along another colorful gift...Barbie!!!

Thanking Uncle Matt and giving him a hug...she loved it!

Had to check out Barbie's shoes and make sure they were up to standards! Abby is my little shoe girl and is fascinated by them!

Brushing Barbie's hair and making her glamorous!

Then it was Abby's turn!

She loved her so much she couldn't stop kissing her!

Then she switched gears and wanted Aunt Katie to read her books :)

Grandma Murfin sent Abigail a fun gift! She loved opening the fun paper!

What is it??

A cookie jar!!

And it talks with every cookie! How fun!

Doll crib fun!

Abigail's cousin, Madison got her this adorable little crib for Christmas. But instead of putting her babydolls in it like a normal little girl, she decided that it was a great place to hide from her mommy!!! She scrunches herself up in a weird position and then closes the doors behind her! Silly girl!
