We had a wonderful Christmas. Kelsi is in a "I hate taking pictures phase" and we couldn't get a family pic, but here is the only one I got of Kelsi and I.....

and of course she smiles for her Daddy!

Kelsi was a little overwhelmed with Christmas this year (yup, that is a potty behind her....we are just letting it hang out for now. Mama is still not ready for that yet).

She loved the sunglasses that Santa left in her stocking.

We had John's parents over for breakfast and John cooked us a DELICIOUS breakfast.

Kelsi's spread. John and I didn't really do Christmas for each other this year and we focused on Kelsi.....I have to admit I had a little bit of buyers remorse. She was overwhelmed with the amount of toys that she now owns. I guess I can justify it by saying that I never buy her toys during the year, so she gets a big load in December (her bday and has to last her until next year). We are considering putting some of the toys away and bringing them out every few months.

This is Kelsi rushing in to see what Santa left her. When I got her up this morning, I asked her if she wanted to open her presents and her eyes lit up and she said "Christmas tree??" I told her she was right, we were going to open the presents under the Christmas tree, and she couldn't get down the stairs fast enough.

Kelsi and her Daddy dancing to some Christmas music.

Mom - I want to apologize in advance for the next couple pictures. Kelsi would NOT let me take a picture of her in her Christmas dress. BUT...she loved it She kept spinning around in it. She was really cute.

The 3T fit my big girl perfectly (maybe an inch longer than it should have been, but otherwise PERFECT!) Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Manderino!

We had a very nice Christmas Eve dinner with friends and Christmas dinner with family. We feel very blessed and are thankful to celebrate the birth of our savior.
