Caroline's First Christmas

Everyone told me this would be the best Christmas, yet I really had no idea just how wonderful it would be until we got the oppotunity to experience it first-hand. Hands down, having a small one makes this holiday season unlike any other and it wasn't about the presents or the activities, but about having God's greatest gift and watching her wonderment in every single detail.
Here is a little play-by-play of our Christmas Eve and Day!
All ready for candlelight church and dinner with my little elf
 Someone might be turning into a Daddy's girl
Some of Santa's goodies being delivered
 The living room all decked out for Christmas morning
 Notice how someone is mocking me with the hand on the hip action?? ;)
Sweet Mimi
 Here comes the princess!!

Posing with her new magical mirror and zany zoo 
 Trying out her new rocking horse from Mimi and Pappy Claus
Present time for us, too!
 Family shot!!
After we got done opening presents, we put CC down for a nap, said goodbye to Mimi and Pappy, and got ready to head to Gran and Papa's house for lunch!
 Waving to the crowd
It was a fantastic day spent with so many important people in our life. The thing that made me happiest was seeing my Gran and Papa so ecstatic to have a baby in their house again on Christmas...I've never seen them so excited to open presents and Caroline is truly one lucky girl to have so many people that love and care for her. It really is a wonderful life! My wish is that each of you had a perfect day, too!
