Christmas Snow Angel

It was so exciting to wake up to a white Christmas. Ainsley was thrilled and wanted to make a snow angel immediately. We convinced her to wait and look at what Santa brought and open presents first. She finally got to go outside and would have stayed forever if we would have let her. The snow was a wonderful Christmas gift to receive.

Covered in snow.

She wanted to go outside more than she wanted to look at what Santa brought her.

Finally! Playing in the snow.

Ainsley and Daniel were making snow castle instead of sand castles with her bucket.

How much snow will fit in that bucket?

Dump it out and do it again Daddy.


Ainsley had a Christmas party at daycare, so I made these darling reindeer cookies for her to share with her friends.

Super cute reindeer cookies!!

Christmas 2010

We had a wonderful Christmas. Christmas Eve was spent at Mimi and Pawpaw's house. The family is so big there are presents everywhere, so your lucky to find a seat.
Christmas day started with us waking Ainsley up at 7:30. We asked her if she wanted to see what Santa brought and she barely moved. Then Ainsley heard Daniel say "It's snowing" and she popped out of the bed and ran to the window to see the snow. She told us she wanted to go outside and make a snow angel. We convinced her to stay inside for a while and see what Santa brought. Then Mimi and Pawpaw stopped by to see what Santa brought too. Gigi and Papa came over to have breakfast and we opened presents with them. Ainsley and Daniel played in the snow for a while, then off to Oyce's for lunch and dinner at my parents with the Coxes. Ainsley played all day with cousins and did not want to go home.
We are so grateful to have such a fabulous family and the ability to see so many of them for Christmas.

Santa 2010

We went to the mall to see Santa, but when we got there Santa did not have his glasses on. Ainsley said she did not want to sit with him without his glasses, so we left. I got her to go back later to see if we could get a picture. Thankfully we went back by and he had his glasses on then. Ainsley said "Santa has his glasses on, so I will take a picture with him now."

Ainsley loves Santa.

She would not talk to him, but I am sure he knew what she wanted for Christmas.

Never hurts to give Santa a high five.
