Sorry things have been a bit quiet around here, we’ve all been enjoying ALOT of quality family time. I’ve also been in one of my live life or blog about it moods. Living won!
That said here’s part one of the recap of all fun…
Kira, my sister, and I went to see The Nutcracker, live!! It was Kira’s first time seeing a live performance and she loved it!! She actually cried when it was over.
Santa and his elves stopped by on Christmas eve with an early present. Guess someone was a VERY good girl!!
Daddy and I went a bit nuts this year… Here’s our girl on her new climbing wall! Yes, my husband built a climbing “gym” in our basement!!! As you can see someone couldn’t even wait to change clothes but had to climb immediately!!
Her other gifts were met with equal joy but the initial reactions were a bit more subtle. I finally finished her doll house! There was no rushing to play with it but more a moment of “taking it all in”…
After staring at it for a bit, she said to me, “Mummy I love the curtains”…what 3 1/2 year old notices things like that? Mine!!!!!
I’d have to say that Christmas this year was the perfect blend of traditions and over-the-top fun!!
Christmas 2012…definitley one of the best for us and I am grateful in more ways than I can explain..
