Christmas Morning ~ 2009

Christmas morning this year was so special! We stayed home so Santa could come see Myla, and we stayed home all day so she could play with all of her new things, and PLAY she did....all day long! I felt more like a kid probably than she did waiting for her to wake up to see her new toys. She, I think, was a little unsure as to what was going on, but she eventually woke up fully and got excited!
Santa's stash....the only thing Myla asked for was a Dora phone. She asked for this on Tuesday before Christmas out of nowhere. Thankfully, Wal-Mart still had the one that she had spotted several weeks earlier.
And, of course, the first thing she opened was the Dora phone and purse.
Moving on to other things. She really like her BIG Disney coloring book as well. It's funny the things that I got that I thought she really wouldn't care about were the things she like the best.
She loved her doctor's kit! She was taking Daddy's blood pressure, or as she calls it "blude" pressure.
And then she had to give him a shot.
"Mommy, do you need a shot too?"
Digging into her stocking...bottles for her babies.
More coloring books...she LOVES the peanut characters.
Disney "chap lipstick". That's what she calles chapstick, and she loves it!
What else is in here???
Daddy with his gift from me and Myla. I think he really liked it!
Michael's gift to me....he is always so creative and sentimental. He had his wedding vows to me printed on a picture of us and framed. So sweet! I loved it and already have it by my bed.
Michael and Myla still digging through their stockings.
Probably the biggest hit of Myla's Christmas was the Disney markers and notebooks. She loves to "write" and draw....especially with markers! I think more writing ended up on her than the notebook!
Finally moving on to feeding the baby...she's not that "into" babies, but I thought maybe having all the baby doll stuff would help when Selah came along and Myla could do all the same things with her baby dolls....we'll see!
Showing me her drawings
Here she is telling me to be quiet because she had just put her baby to sleep.
Now she was waking up her baby. She just took the whole pack 'n play into her room to put her to sleep.
She and Michael finally broke into the Play-doh, and Myla pretty much has not stopped playing with it. She is actually pretty good with it and has learned that she can only play with one color at a time.
Henry gave Myla a Cinderella outfit, so of course, we had to try it on....sweet princess!
Again, as Cinderella!
Sitting with Daddy back to playing with her doctor's kit.
Down to just the shoes and crown and watching the Disney Christmas parade.
Still watching the parade
Sae Sae and Granddaddy came over for a little while to see what Santa had brought Myla. She was so excited to see them, as always!
Here Myla is watching a Christmas jibjab card that my dad sent us. It was pretty funny, and Myla just wanted to watch it over and over. She would get hysterical everytime we watched it.
Mimi, Bodie and Sis Sis also stopped by to see us, but the only person I managed to get a picture of was Myla and Mimi.
I can't believe Christmas has already come and gone! It is most definitely my favorite time of year. Next year will be so different with another little one! I can't wait!
