A Very Merry Christmas

Christmas morning five adults were eagerly watching the baby monitor, waiting for Stella to wake up and open presents! When she finally roused herself, she was the cat's pajamas in her cat pajamas. Although she was more interested in her grandpa than she was in the tree or her gifts, she eventually got around to exploring her kitchen from Grandmere and Grandpa... She and Grandmere enjoyed Mortimer's Christmas Manger together...
Her shopping cart came complete with a passenger, but she had to provide her own sound effects...
Before she opened her dishes, she was sampling her culinary delights right out of the pot...
She had to pause during the festivities to take a few important calls...
She got some yummy lipgloss in her stocking...
And this handy ducky nail brush, which will come in quite handy for those hard to reach oreos under the fingernails...
She set sail on the Little People Mayflower thanks to Grandma Tonie...
She cooked up some delicious hamburgers in her kitchen...
My little Emeril...
She had a spot of tea with Grandpa...
Much like Mommy and Daddy, she was overwhelmed by the pile of dirty dishes...
She found time to hit the tub with her new soap crayons from Jamie. Our tub may never be the same (or sections of our sheetrock, for that matter)...
Yum! Brown cookies! Also known as oreos...
After our presents were opened and Jesus' birthday breakfast was over, we packed up and headed to Erwinville for Christmas at Mawmaw Shirley's, where Stella and Daddy shared some giggles...
Stella liked her outfit from Mawmaw Shirley, but she must have been worried that it was the wrong size, because she was much more proud of her gift receipt...
She helped Chad open his gift, and as you can see, the event was documented from all sides...
Cute picture of Stella. Try to ignore the crazy relative making faces in the background...
Stella welcomes Baby Stephanie...
See the parental pride in her eyes...
Such a polite child. She told everyone thank you...
Chad and Alaina had some very useful gifts for Sheila. I am sure they will all come in handy. Especially the fire extinguisher...
Recently, Stella has been telling me that she is a "big girl." Looking at this picture, I have to agree...
We had a great time celebrating the birth of our savior with our family. Stella's second Christmas was even more fun than her first...

Loved, loved all the pictures!! Stella's hair is SOOO long...I can't wait till the twins have hair like that. They need a haircut SO bad, but I can't bear to take them. :( When is her sibling getting here??????

This is ADORABLE! Christmas looks like it was so much fun! It will be nice to have Savannah open her presents....and actually KNOW what's going on! This year, we had more fun with the ribbon than with the gift!! :)

I don't think y'all have grasped the concept of the crayons. You're not suppose to color on the window sill with them :-) They should probably stay in the other bathroom.
