Christmas Day is HERE!!!!

Today is Christmas Day in our house, and Lydia was awake bright and early as usual at 6 am. We woke up, had some breakfast in the kitchen, then went downstairs to see what Santa left! I went down ahead of Lydia to put the lights on the tree and to make sure that Christmas music was playing!

The very first thing that she went for was her Care Bear! There was Share Bear, decorated with red, green and white ribbons! You should have seen the big smile on her face! And of course, the very next thing that she spotted was her Winnie-the-Pooh Mega Blocks that Santa
left! She loves Winnie-the-Pooh, so that caught her eye as well!

One present that she really loved was her rocking horse from her grandparents! You can see from the picture how much fun she is having rocking back and forth on it! We named the rocking horse Black Beauty. She also received some beautiful Winnie-the-Pooh story books from her grandparents. Lydia loves to pour over books, so they kept her interest for quite a while this morning.

Lydia also loved to pass out the gifts to the rest of us, I would give her a gift and then tell her who to give it to. I think that we all enjoyed our Christmas morning, especially since we had Lydia to share it with.

We all watched A Sesame Street Christmas Carol together, which is currently Lydia's favorite DVD. She loves watching Big Bird and Oscar and Elmo on TV. She actually asks for that movie by name, she says "Do you want to watch Sesame Street Christmas movie?" and of course, who can say no to a child on Christmas?

We then had a lovely brunch together. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family, full of love, that I can share this special day with. This truly was a very beautiful and Merry Christmas, and one that I will treasure in my heart for a long time.

Merry Christmas and God Bless!
