christmas

We celebrated and celebrated.  Five family Christmas gatherings and lots of time with family. Here are a few pictures of Cora's first Christmas:

Cora's first gift was this great sled.  We spent Christmas Eve with Joel's family and the grandkids each got a big gift from Joel's parents after breakfast.  Cora loved to just sit in the sled.  Now we need some snow!

Working very hard to decorate a gingerbread house.

We tried REALLY hard to get a family "Christmas" picture.  You know, one where everyone is looking and smiling.  This is our best!  Cora claps for everything now.

The cousins all put on their Christmas jammies to open presents in the evening.

They wanted a picture with Cora too, but she kept trying to crawl away.  Henry tried really hard to hold onto her. 

Christmas morning we spent at home by ourselves.  It was such a nice relaxing day and so fun to celebrate Christmas with our new family of three.

Cora had to spend some more time in her sled.

She loved crawling over to the Christmas tree and presents.

And this was her first present from Grammy, I mean "Santa".  

We had two more Christmas gatherings in Nebraska with Joel's family, but I managed to not take a single picture.  Oops!


New Year's Day we celebrated Christmas with my family.  Ellie was the Christmas elf and helped everyone open their presents.

Cora was quite grumpy this day.  I think she was DONE celebrating Christmas.  She would only go to Grammy.

MORE presents to open.  Cora was very spoiled!  Thank you everyone!

And I tried to get a picture with Cora too, but she wouldn't look at the camera.  Like I said, I think she had enough parties and pictures.  Hope you had a Merry Christmas!
