Christmas Morning 2012

Christmas Stocking

Christmas morning dawned bright an early in our household, this year (just shy of seven AM). After waking Grandma up and then proceeding downstairs, we discovered that Santa ate most of the cookies we left out for him and he even left a note telling Katy what a good girl she has been this past year. (Funny story, On Christmas Eve, Katy kept insisting that Santa did not want cookies- he wanted steak, instead- hahahaha!)

Katy opened her stocking, first. She got some hair bows, a crazy straw and some other small toys in her stocking.

Then, we moved onto opening the gifts. Katy had quite the pile of gifts, but we finally managed to get through them. She loved her pacifier doll from Nana and Papa Jones and her art table from Grandma and Pop-Pop Tinkey. Some other memorable gifts include a 'My Little Pony' from Uncle Rob and Aunt Julie (big hit!) and the 'Fancy Nancy Splendiforous Christmas' book from Aunt Hope and Uncle Eric (I think I just about have it memorized from the many times I've read it out loud ;-P). She is one lucky little girl!

After gifts, the adults all enjoyed a Tinkey family favorite, Christmas Strata. Meanwhile, Lil' Miss was too busy playing with all of her new toys to be bothered with eating.

Ted and my Dad spent the afternoon at the movie theater watching The Hobbit. Mom and I stayed home with Katy, enjoying a leisurely afternoon with Lil' Miss. Katy spent most of the day in her PJs, playing with her new toys.

After the guys got home from the movies, we ate Chinese take-out (our family's tradition- hey, it's my Christmas, too, and I'd rather not spend it cooking and cleaning up from a big meal!) and then we watched the 'The Grinch Who Stole Christmas."

All in all, it was an enjoyable, relaxing holiday spent with family! We need more moments like that in our lives! Merry "Splendiforous" Christmas!
