Christmas 2009

So I haven’t updated the blog in about 2 weeks now because we’ve been in Knoxville since Christmas Eve.  We had such a great trip, spending time with family & friends!  Its true that “there’s no place like home for the holidays.”

Before we left VA, we introduced Kaitlin to A Charlie Brown Christmas.  To date, this is the only show/movie to hold her attention for more than 5 minutes.  She loved it!


She was also excited about all the presents under the Christmas tree & even posed for a picture with her very own stocking!

She especially loved spending time with G’Daddy & loved her Elf on a Shelf from Cool Aunt Rachel.  Will her Elf be naughty or nice next year?


Then Kaitlin went to visit Kiki & Pop’s house on Christmas afternoon.  She had NO idea that she would be the center of attention!

Kaitlin had lots of extra hands from her cousins opening presents!  Kiley & Hannah were especially helpful!

All in all, it was a wild & fun Christmas like we’ve never seen.  Kaitlin’s first Christmas was so special &, once she got adjusted, she had a great time!  We are blessed to have such a wonderful family to come home to each Christmas and are truly thankful for the birth of our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ.  Finally, we’ve included Kaitlin’s favorite Christmas present (from Aunt Gina), demonstrating the true reason for the season …


(Please forgive the panda, who we’re pretty sure was not at the birth of Christ … but Kaitlin really wanted to include him).
