checking out her new baby crib and "glass" slippers
time to open presents!


this turned out to quite possibly be her favorite gift-she WILL NOT take it off!!!

she immediatly put it the gown on, along with her new glass slippers and started walking around & said, very seriously, "I think I'm getting married." :)

christmas eve

we started out the evening at church for the christmas eve service. i was a bit nervous because the preacher had asked us to do our Jesus' birthday celebration that our family does which meant that chloe had to be on stage the entire service-eek! luckily, she did great though and we all remembered our parts :) afterwards we headed to mimi and papa's to do Jesus' Birthday with extended family and open gifts!
chloe & jonah
mia & nate

Brooks reading the Christmas story from the bible
lighting the candle
chloe insisted that she blow it out-of course! :)
decorating the gingerbread house
ta-da!
mimi & her gift from us & sister & bro-in law
what could this be?
a little excited!
posing by her dollhouse! and yes...it is missing its DOOR! we had to take the entire house back to pottery barn & exchange it because its door was broken! :(
and whats even more fun than a brand new dollhouse?! the box!
laying out cookies and milk for santa...she was saying, "maybe I should have just a little try!"

snow!

on christmas eve we were treated to SNOW! chloe loved playing in it (or at least trying to eat it!) you'll see after a few minutes we wised up and put a hat on the poor child! :)
