I’m slowing, but surely catching up on the blog from Christmas…
LOTS of PICS, so hang in there!
On Christmas Eve we went to the service at our church, and it was such a blessing. It’s always a great time to remember that even in the craziness of the season, Jesus is why we celebrate it. Taking the Lord’s supper on Christmas Eve is always so special to me because I think even though at Christmas, we celebrate Christ’s birth, his death on the cross was the REAL reason He came.
Pretty girls ready for the service. The Christmas Eve service is for the entire family to attend, so there is no nursery. Selah enjoyed being in “big” church with everyone! She did great except for when she got her candle at the end and she kept blowing it out and getting wax all over me. Ha!
We came home from the Christmas Eve service and got ready for bed so Santa could come! Doesn’t Selah look SO different without her glasses?
We left chocolate candy for Santa since that is all we had fixed. I don’t think he/she minded that at all!
Santa did stop by!
Myla’s stash from Santa
And Selah’s stash.
All the girls asked for was a doll house and a doctors’ kit. Thankfully “Santa” got a dollhouse last January at Goodwill that was still in the box! Daddy had fun putting that together while we went to the Bellevue Singing Christmas Tree! His words, after putting it together, were, “I REALLY hope they enjoy this!”
Happy girl #1!!!!!!!!
Happy girl #2!!!!!!!!
Selah checking out her doctor’s kit accessories!
I think stockings are Myla’s favorite part of Christmas! She was so excited to start digging into hers!
Selah had lots of treasures in her stocking too!
Still searching for more!
Everything can be so nice and neat, and then…
The doc is in!
I would trust her as my doctor, wouldn’t you?
After enjoying their Santa stuff for awhile, it was time to open presents! All Selah asked for for several weeks before Christmas was the big Minnie that she had seen at WalMart. So, Myla gave her that!
Myla was excited to get a VReader, and she has enjoyed playing with it so much! She loves electronics!!
Selah opening her Baby Alive doll. They have both played and played with this doll!
Selah’s first board game!
In true form, my camera battery died about 15 minutes into Christmas morning, so I had to resort to my phone! Not the greatest picture quality, but at least it’s documented!
Princess dress for a princess!
Love this picture!!! Myla had seen some house slippers at a store here in Oxford and wanted them so badly. SO, Selah saved the day and gave them to her!
Aren’t they cute?
Love this face too! Papaw, Macy and Maggie sent Myla a cosmetologist dress up kit! She had seen it when Maggie was here in Square Books, Jr., and Aunt Maggie took note and got it for her!
Selah LOVES her big Elmo pillow from Papaw, Macy and Maggie. He sleeps by her every night!
After all the presents were opened, it was time for breakfast. The new baby had to join us and have her breakfast too!
Such a good little mommy!
Doesn’t that green mush look appetizing? And yes, she does have a dirty diaper after she eats. Ha!
Myla quickly put her cosmetologist kit to work!
Something we had not planned to do on Christmas day was spend several hours on the roof because it was leaking. Our families were good sports about it and helped out!
Mimi got her hair done as well!
Both of our families came over Christmas day for lunch, and later in the afternoon it was time to open gifts from Mimi, Bodie and Sis Sis! It was chaos!!
Selah LOVES all of her new babies!
Myla asked my mom for “mommy” dresses and high heels. She was so excited to get her first pair of high heels to dress up in!
Henry like his magician kit from us!
Myla with one of her “mommy” dresses!
Bodie loved his NY Giants car floor mats from Mimi!
Myla and Henry…Henry came in his pajamas and my girls changed clothes about 10 times on Christmas Day. I had cute, matching outfits laid out for them to wear, but we just went with the flow and wore whatever they wanted to!
Selah was getting a little tired and out of the mood for pictures!!
How about this pose!! LOVE ti!
She loves having a baby in her hands all the time!
Doesn’t she look like a little “mommy” in her dress and high heels!!
Playing with toys and dressing up…happy kids!
Mimi and Bodie gave the girls a karaoke machine, so Myla put on a little performance for Henry, Selah, and Minnie Mouse!
