Daddy & I woke up with Levi about an hour before Kendall. We were about to wake her up when she appeared at the top of the stairs & said, “Good mornin’.” It was amazing to watch her sweet face of surprise as she came around the corner to the Christmas tree.
As Kendall opened her gifts, she had to put each piece of paper in the trash bag. Each and every, single, itty, bitty piece. It took us about 2 hours to open up the gifts! She was totally overwhelmed and wanted to play with the new things as she opened them. She had to put on her new snow boots immediately & wear them the rest of the morning. Seeing her so spoiled was so much fun as a parent! Kendall even showed Levi his toys after she opened them. We are excited to watch both of them open their gifts next year!
After presents, we had to find the Christmas pickle…. FIND Kendall, not eat, my dear…
After playing with a few new things inside, like her new doctor set, Kendall & Daddy headed outside. She had to test out her new snow pants while Daddy hung Mama’s new bird feeder. Kendall had fun in the sled, but I think Daddy enjoyed it more
We got dressed & Kendall let me take one photo of her & even though I am not thrilled with the holiday mess in the background, I adore her sweet face & will take what I can get!
And then we headed over to Grammie & Papa’s for more spoiling…
When you are from a bit of a hunting family, you get a .22 for your first Christmas present from Papa & Grammie. (Kendall got a pink one in 2011).
And then we hung out with everyone while waiting for Christmas Dinner & munching on some yummy snacks….
And dinner…. good job, Grammie & Papa! Levi sat on Daddy’s lap just observing. Sweet little baby he isKendall sure loves her Papa & had to scoot from her seat to his lap!
And then we headed home, but not without taking a little holiday light tour through Rochester. Magical! We had a wonderful 2013 Christmas & look forward to many more! Happy Holidays, Kendall’s World readers! xoxo
