Merry Christmas!

We had a very wonderful Christmas this year. It was a very low key day in our pajamas and then over to our neighbors house in the evening for dessert. The only thing that Magnolia wanted Santa to bring her was cookies. The very first time someone asked her what she wanted she said cookies, and she never changed that idea the entire holiday season. As soon as she saw the cookies he brought her Christmas was complete and she didnt need anything else! I am pretty sure Santa would love it if the only thing she ever asks for is cookies! :)
It is also official to say that Magnolia LOVES to savor things. She did not want her Christmas to end so did everything in her power to make it last. I do believe she holds the record for the slowest child to open presents! She averaged one an hour! She would open it and then play hard with it until we encouraged her to open up another gift. She was so slow that we didnt finish gift opening until yesterday! It was so cute to truly enjoy every gift that she got and savor Christmas Day!

Up On The Housetop

Here is Magnolia singing Up On The Housetop on Christmas morning

More skiing

We took Magnolia skiing in Breckenridge on Christmas Eve. She got to ride her first gondola so she thought she was pretty hot stuff. It has been VERY warm here in Denver this winter so it was fun to go up in the mountains and have a semi white Christmas!

Here is the latest video of Magnolia skiing. The last 3 seconds is so adorable! This girl was born to ski!

Grammy and Pappa

David's parents came out last weekend for an early Christmas. Magnolia had the most wonderful time getting spoiled! She got to open some Christmas presents, which included a new crib for her baby! We also went to a Christmas parade with them, went out to eat, went to the Children's Museum, and of course, played at home! Magnolia and I had a rough day on Monday when she went back to the harsh reality of hearing the word "no." :) So fun to see Magnolia truly enjoying and loving her grandparents!

Neighborhood Christmas Party

I have had troubles being able to upload my pictures so I apologize for the slow blogging!
Last weekend Magnolia and I went to our neighborhood Christmas party. We went with Magnolia's friends Sofi and Bella. We saw Santa, made crafts, ate cookies and drank hot cider, and even went on a horse and carriage ride around the neighborhood. The carriage ride was by far Magnolia's highlight. It was so adorable, we sang Christmas carols while looking at all of the beautiful lights of the neighborhood. So fun!

Sittin' with Santa

Magnolia got to sit with Santa this past weekend. She took the whole thing very seriously and loved him! She even wished him a Merry Christmas when she was done sitting with him. Santa gave her her very first candy cane which she thought was the coolest thing ever!
