Merry Christmas From Hannah! What a cute little present!
Playing in the Snow with Daddy
For the first time in 60+ years Charlotte had a white Christmas and it was grand! The snow just squeaked in on Christmas Day in the evening, but it counts. Ella and I went out to play for a wee bit and starting building a snow man. I pulled her around in the sled. She was not so excited about the sled. Later she went out with Philip and finished the snow man and made snowballs. Ella is a natural snow ball maker. She made us proud. Hannah stayed inside and didn't get a chance to play in the snow. She is working on kicking an ear infection and I thought snow may not be a good idea.
Christmas was wonderful. On Christmas Eve Hannah got to be Baby Jesus at church. She did a great job. She was all smiles and oh so pleasant. (As I imagine Baby Jesus was, the Christ Child had to be a great baby, right?!) We really enjoyed having Uncle Matt is town. Ella Bean loved playing Legos with him. (Uncle Matt got her Cars Legos for Christmas and she was so excited!) Ella was so much fun to watch on Christmas morning. She was so excited about her presents. She was spoiled by her grandma, grandpa, Oma, & Opa. She got lots of fun presents... books, baby dolls, legos, Little People, a blanket made my mom and dad and other treasures. Hannah really enjoyed the wrapping paper and her talking puppy from PawPaw Jimmy and MawMaw Vickie.
We are enjoying a relaxing break. I am getting lots of sewing done and reading done. The girls are having a grand time playing with their toys. Hannah has enjoyed several naps on daddy. (Her favorite place to nap.)
