Christmas 2011

We love going to the Riverwoods during the Christmastime so we can see the lights and let Kate see Santa. It's an outdoor mall, so it gets pretty cold. Here we are huddled together to keep warm. Ada barely made it in :)

Ada and I in the toy store. I love how she's licking her coat. Just too tempting...
Best. Picture. Ever.
Seriously, this warms my heart every time I look at it. Kate was nervous at first, but warmed right up. Love that genuine smile!
We made chocolate and caramel dipped pretzels for some treats to give away. Kate sure enjoyed testing them out. She also got a kick out of these "lovely" pictures.

Decorating sugar cookies at Grandma Jenn's. I wish I had a picture of her finished product. The snowman was covered in frosting and sprinkles. I'm not sure if anyone ate it... But she had a great time being creative!
Christmas morning! We had 9am church, so we got ready before opening the presents. I love when Christmas falls on a Sunday. It's a great way to remember the true meaning of Christmas.
Kate with some presents. She was so happy Santa didn't forget her! We spent Christmas Eve with Dustin's Dad, and before we left, he went outside and jingled some bells. Kate recognized the sound of Santa and his reindeer, so she pushed us out the door so she could get to bed before Santa came. If you look closely you can see a little bottle of ketchup. She was very excited to find this in her stocking. She LOVES to put ketchup on almost anything!
