So basically Gavin was born and our world got pretty busy! The month of December flew by while we adjusted to night wakings (ok, while I adjusted), more laundry, and an increasingly demanding toddler. Christmas was upon us before we knew it, and while we've been meaning to share our holiday with you, we've been in a bit of a fog. But, here it is! The Bailey Holidaze 2010. Presented in 2011.
Maddie was not quite sure what to make of the stocking, but she knew it was a sock, so she took off the ones on her feet and tried to put the stocking on.
She soon figured out there was stuff inside the stocking - just for her!
And it wouldn't be Christmas if Maddie didn't get a spoon, so...
Of course, much love was lavished on the Elmo magna-doodle.
There had to be just a little toddler drama...
...but it was nothing that sending her under the tree for another present couldn't solve.
Gavin was just hanging out while Maddie tore through her presents and his.
And tear through them she did!
The surprise winner of the day were the Plan Toys cars, trucks, and bus. I asked if I could see one (you know, to play with it), and this is as close as I got:
Maddie also got to work decorating with her new snowmen stickers...
And by the end of Christmas day, everyone was exhausted, especially Daddy and Gavin.
We hope you had as wonderful a day as we did!
