Christmas Recap

I really should be upstairs packing for our daunting 7am flight tomorrow morning. However, blogging just sounded like more here we go! :)

Here is a little recap of our holiday fun here in the frozen tundra of Minne-soh-tah!

Emersyn- 4 months old- 2008

Emersyn- 16 months old- 2009

I just dig the red and white striped pajamas. (Gymboree for $9-score!!!!) I got her the same ones (almost) that she had last year for this year's Christmas morning. I always envisioned my babies in striped jammies at Christmas time so I think we are going to start a tradition. I love that it is gender neutral too for whatever other babies the Lord sees fit to bless us with! Fun fun.

Emersyn likes to start her morning off with a cup of "coffee", just like her mom and dad! :)

We have raised Emersyn to be a polite child, not one of those kids that tosses the card and goes straight for the gift. Hee hee, just kidding. I am pretty sure I posed her for this picture!!

Emersyn went into the mud room and brought Brett his snow boots while we were opening presents. It was too cute. We let her try them on. I think she wanted to go play in the snow!

We didn't have any gifts for Emersyn to open on Christmas day. I think I mentioned before that my parents didn't wrap any of her gifts so that Ems could play with them all week. We are doing another Christmas celebration with Brett's family on New Year's Day so we should get some cute pics of her tearing into some gift wrap! :)

The day after Christmas we went to see the "Chipmunks" movie as a family!

Emersyn was drawn to Simon, the tall slim and smart Chipmunk. We are hoping this is a good indication of her taste in boys? :) Emersyn sat still for about 3 minutes of the movie. The rest of the time we took turns holding her in the aisle and letting her run around up and down the entrance where no one could see her or us. Brett mainly did a bulk of the work, he is such a good and patient daddy.

Sunday we decided to venture to an indoor play park in Edina, MN. Here is Emersyn modeling her tights and snow boots before I put her jeans on.

Having fun at the park!

Well, I better get to packing! I am half tempted to pull an all nighter since we have to get up at about 4am. But who am I kidding? I am way too old for that!! I am hoping that Emersyn gets back on a good sleep schedule once we get back into town. I am off until Monday the 4th, which is such a tremendous blessing. I am looking forward to getting unpacked, seeing friends, and enjoying my own bed again!!! 10 days is a long time to be away from home!

Happy Monday everyone!!

I love her stripey jammies! We started the tradition of blue snowflake jammies on Jay's 1st Christmas and we're still doing it 8 years later!
