The never-ending picture recap of Christmas!

Christmas Preparations!
Making cookies with Mommy
Having a great time!
Gingerbread house decorating
Pretty proud of her masterpiece!
Our "dreaming of a white Christmas" version
1st "Christmas" with Uncle Dandy
Callie got a "My Little Pony"
Pretty exciting!
Love you, Uncle Dandy!
He also gave her a stuffed animal barn with animals and a cool puzzle!
The barn doubles as a purse!
Hugs before jammies

Christmas #2-Christmas Eve Morning with Daddy and Mommy
Coming down the stairs!
Checking out her present pile
New b-ball hoop!
Sheep book!
Broom so she can finally sweep at the same time as Mommy!
And the big gift...a Tinkerbell outfit!
Pretty adorable!
The full look!
She loves it :-)

Christmas Morning
Mommy and Callie ready for church
opened some presents when we got home
almost ready for Grandpa and Grandma "Woof Woof's" (Bertolinis)
Her new dog from Great Grandma Bertolini
Puzzle from Great Grandpa and Grandma Stewart

Christmas #3 with the Bertolinis
Grandma showed Callie the Christmas story through these little boxes
(each had a different part of the story inside such as Mary, Jesus, angel)
Callie played with the boxes for quite a while
Callie was Santa for a little while
Aunt Ashley gave Callie a Tinkerbell toothbrush.
Couldn't wait to brush her teeth!
The Bertolinis

AND on to the Davis side! Christmas #4
These 3 cousins adore each other :-).
Opening presents-we attempted to keep them on the couch the whole time-they did okay!
Sophie and A.J. sharing Callie's excitement as she opened
her Bitty Baby from Grammy and Poppy.
Callie gave baby "Abby" a hug right away!
and carried her around in her "backpack"
Disclaimer: The next few pictures are small because I thought
they would upload faster-not the case!
Uncle Josh and Aunt Anna gave Callie a "Boom Truck!" So exciting!
Fun and rare picture of just the two of us after 7 years of marriage!
The "Davis" girls!
Poppy and his granddaughters!
The cousins taking a rest!
The whole family :-) Only our 2nd take and all smiling-pretty impressive, right?!
What a fun Christmas week we had! While there were lots of presents and Callie loved the Christmas tree and lights, she's also getting really good at the Christmas songs about Jesus-
her favorite being "O Come All Ye Faithful."
We look forward to watching her grow and learn more about Jesus in 2012!
