Christmas with Grandma and Grandpa

Christmas morning we got up VERY early and went to DJ's parent's house to open presents. Their tradition since they were kids was to get up really early and open presents. Since it was so early we put Makenna back to bed when we got there then we all opened presents. She woke up about the time we were finishing so then she opened up her presents. After all the gifts were opened she played with all her new toys and then it was time for another nap. I took a nap too. We stayed at his parents house all day just hanging out. Then we stuffed ourselves on a wonderful dinner. To finish off the night we played a game of Phase 10. It was a wonderful way to spend Christmas day and we all had a great time. Here are some pictures of the family and Makenna and all of her new toys.

This is the Walker's mantel on Christmas morning. Everyone has a stocking including the dogs.

Here are all the presents before we opened them!

Sidekick, DJ's parent's dog.

Oh, don't we look beautiful! Can you tell it's really early?

DJ got a new fireplace poker set.

I got a beautiful blanket rack. I love it!

DJ's dad got a really nice Razorback jacket.

DJ's mom got a digital picture frame.

She loves these colored rings.

She got a Razorback sippy cup. Now if I could just get her to use it.

She was so excited about her Leap Frog Music table.

Her Uncle Greg put the rings on her arms and legs. She didn't even seem to notice.

Can you tell she loved her toys?

She absolutely loves this table. It is awesome and she plays on it all day.

She loves Sidekick and he is so good with her.

Christmas with Mimi and Poppy

We spent Christmas day with DJ's parents but the pictures are on DJ's mom's camera and I haven't had a chance to get them yet. So, when I get them I will blog about Christmas day. We spent Friday, the day after Christmas, with my Aunt and Uncle. I'm very close to my Aunt and consider her like a second mom. Makenna calls them Mimi and Poppy. The Heavener family all came over to our house, Mamaw, Papaw, Natalie, Wes, Aunt Bev, Glenn, and Uncle Gary. We had a wonderful lunch with tons of food. Then we opened presents. Makenna loved all of her toys. She also got some really cute clothes. She played with her toys for the rest of the day. It was wonderful to have my whole family here. We had a great time. I love spending time with my family. I got an awesome present. My aunt is big on antique shopping. For the past year she has been collecting antique nursing equipment, pictures and books. When I came home on Thursday she and my uncle had come over without my knowledge and put all of these items on a book shelf in my breakfast area. It is so cool. I abolutely love it. Here are some pictures from Christmas with my family.

She looks so cute in this dress.

Makenna loved this toy. It is a box that has different shaped pieces that fit into it. It also plays music.

Of course DJ got Raider stuff for Christmas.

Raider decided to jump into Wes (Natalie's husband) lap.

Natalie got Pedi Paws, a nail trimming device for animals.

Makenna got several Baby Einstein, Classic Disney, and Veggie Tales videos.

Poppy got Makenna this camo outfit and she hasn't had a chance to wear it yet so we thought today was a good time since it was so warm outside.

DJ put her in her princess robe this morning after her bath. I thought she was so cute I couldn't resist taking a picture.

That is the cutest face I've ever seen.
