Surprise by Chloe

Maybe you remember this post?  Well apparently it is going to be a regular feature on the blog.  I walk in to her room the other day and this I what I find.

I love finding these little surprises, even though she is not supposed to be playing with the CD player....

Chloe got to open one gift on Christmas eve.  Her Christmas pajamas and a Christmas shirt to wear the next day.  We got to Skype with the cousins in Hawaii while they opened their Christmas eve gifts as well.

 Her special Christmas gift!

 Stocking yummies!

Time for gifts!!

It was a fun, special time with family and even though she was sick and decided to share her cold with mama, we all had a really good time!

Christmas with Grandpa and Grandma

We got to go to my Grandma and Grandpa's house for a Christmas celebration while we were in Amarillo.  We haven't been there in a very long time.  It was so much fun to see the grandparents, aunts and uncles and spend time with the family.  Chloe had a blast and was so tired when we left to go home.

What do you think Lilly, can we do it?

Snuggles with Great Grandma

Here mom, I'll take the popcorn

This is a much easier way to move this thing.

 Love the baby!

All decked out!

A little blur!

She was so tired.  She found a little corner with a fun little piece of Christmas decor and entertained herself, for a long while.

So glad that we got to spend the day with the family while we were there.

White Christmas

When we woke up on Christmas Day it had snowed.  We hardly ever have snow on Christmas so it was a special treat for everyone.  The snow came with high winds and wind chills in the negatives so we didn't get out in it.  I didn't have super warm clothes for Chloe and she woke with a cold that day so we admired it from afar.  The wind did blow some snow in around around the door so Chloe got to touch it and feel it some and stay where it was warm.  Perfect combo for that day!


 First experience with snow

Chloe won't remember it, but I thought it was fun that her first Christmas in Amarillo was white!

Fun at Mimi and Pawpaw's

We spent almost a week in Amarillo this year for Christmas.  It had been a couple of years since we had been there for Christmas so it was nice to get to celebrate with my family.  Chloe had all kinds of fun at Mimi and Pawpaw's and with their pets.

 Chloe and Ruger, Pawpaw's puppy, were best friends

 Carrying legos all by herself!

 Found Mimi's straws!

 So fun!
