Christmas 2011

What a fun Christmas season this has been!

We had a great small group Christmas party at the Lisenby's house. Here are all the munchkins!

Miss Sherry let me borrow these Christmas costumes she uses in her classroom. Piper kept telling me that "He (Bash/Frosty) is melting!"

Bash and Piper enjoying some Christmas gifts from Miss Sherry. :)

My whole family came to visit for Christmas. When they arrived on Friday Chris had to take my brothers shopping as they had procrastinated on their shopping while my parents and I took the girls to Bass Pro to see Santa. When we got there they gave us a ticket to come back in 6 hours to see Santa so we didn't actually get to sit on his lap this year. I don't think it would have gone well anyways as Piper would freaked once it actually got to be her turn and Campbell is so clingy to mommy right now, but we looked at Santa, his elves and reindeer. We also saw the fish and waterfall at Bass Pro and rode their reindeer carousel.

Piper was showing off her dress-up clothes, listening to music, and dancing. Then she decided that she had to dance with a king. Uncle Craig couldn't be a king so Popsy was the king and danced with Princess Piper! :)

Check out those socks with high heels!

Pops bundled up the girls and took them for a stroller ride - his favorite!

On Christmas Eve Bash and Piper put out a plate for Santa and his reindeer - carrots, sopapilla cheesecake, a cookie, and a tamale. He ate everything, but not the whole cookie. Then Bash and Piper slept in her room inside her little house with Uncle Craig being the guard so no one peeked at Santa presents before we were all awake.

Coming downstairs.....

Bash got some crazy Texas Tech argyle socks

Cam got bath toys and fake fruit to go with her shopping cart

Can you see those two bottom teeth she cut at Thanksgiving? :)

Chris and I love this pic - how true

Grammy and Popsy got Piper her own ipad- a Leappad - and she loves it!!!!

She also got a new baby doll and stroller from Grammy and Popsy. Piper likes to walk on her tippy-toes and push this stroller all over the house :)

On the 26th we had a big family dinner at our house - Chuck, Kelly, and Jake McCarter, Gram and Gramps, Mimi, my brothers and parents, and later Uncle Randy's family stopped by. There were a lot of people but it was so fun and we loved having everyone come visit us this year.

Early morning playtime with Grammy!

We were sad to see my mom leave today and it is so quiet around the house now, but we sure loved having everyone!!!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
