Our Best One Yet

 We spent Christmas Eve at my parent's house.  Alexa chose her outfit and Elizabeth's.  I just loved the way she looked that night.  We had a delicious ham dinner and then opened gifts by the fire.

 Alexa with her Poh Poh.  You can see that our weather was beautiful.
 Alexa and PaPa.
 I love the look on both of their faces.  Sort of cheeky.
 I was having a bad hair day this night.  I thought we were supposed to be at their house at 5:00 and instead I got a phone call at 4:00 saying "Where are you guys?"  Oops..we rushed to head over, hence the dorky hairdo.

 This photo makes me laugh because it looks nothing like any of us.  The Chief has some weird silly grin on his face, Alexa looks 20 pounds heavier, and I have some sort of deer in the headlights look.  My dad was taking the photo ( big mistake) and I think the 46 flashes coming at us had us all acting strange.  All 46 photos had our heads cut off, so my mom had to take over on this one.
 Alexa opening her riding outfit for Elizabeth from American Girl.  She really loved it.
 Christmas morning.  Here are two of her favorite gifts.  The horse in the background is for Elizabeth to ride and she got the bed from American Girl. I was really happy with how beautiful it was.  Alexa put it next to her own bed.
Her other favorite gift was her scooter. This was a last minute decision on my part.  I found it at Target on clearance and thought great!  Turns out it was missing the tassels and front plate but Alexa never noticed.  She is getting better every day on it and seems to really enjoy it.
We had a wonderful Christmas weekend. I really think it was our best one yet.

It looks as though you had an extra special Christmas! ALexa is just so beautiful....and I can't believe how much she has grown and changed. It has been a few months since I have truly made the bloggy rounds:(

Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year! May 2011 bring lots of happiness to your family.
