Christmas Day

We all had a LOT of fun this Christmas morning! Most of the enjoyment came from watching Kara. :-) She was absolutely wonderful and really seemed to soak it all in. When it came to opening gifts, Kara pulled on wrapping paper, played with tissue paper, and was very interested in all of the gifts she received. The 'playtime puppy' given to Kara by her sister, Samantha, was definitely a favorite. Kara made all kinds of happy sounds, waved her arms and kicked her feet to show how much she liked it!

Christmas Eve

The picture of the four of us was taken in front of our Christmas tree in the family room. We clean up pretty good--don't we?! We were all ready to take Nana & Papa to the candlelight service at our church. After church, we changed Kara into her PJ's. We had to show everyone the cute pictures of Kara smiling wearing her Santa hat--too cute! It's a tradition in our family to open one present on Christmas Eve. We took a picture of Kara ripping the paper off of the present she received from Micara & Daniel Coats--her birth-grandparents. Kara loves to rip paper! Kara opened a beautiful pewter covered picture album that had a giraffe, toucan and hippo on the front. It will go perfectly in her bedroom.
