Christmas 2010!



Brighton and Don joined forces to make this masterpiece gingerbread house. She was pretty proud of it.
Bren, Megh, Ellie, & Cam came over on Christmas Eve. We had a yummy dinner and decorated cookies for Santa.

Jackson's first Christmas!

Oh the anticipation of a four year old on Christmas morning! Brighton was beyond excited. Such a fun age for Christmas!


No matter how much we tried to veer her in another direction, Brighton's number one Christmas wish was to have her very own Go Go My Walkin' Pup. Wish granted. Santa is so nice.












We had a great Christmas. It was a laid back day and we just enjoyed being with each other. Jackson hung out in his bouncer the whole time we opened presents and was his usual, pleasant self all day. Santa was nice enough to wrap up some of the stuff he already owned for Christmas...for his sister's sake. Brighton was happy to unwrap all of his old stuff for him. She also unwrapped most of her parents' gifts. Bri was thrilled with everything. Even when she unwrapped a pack of socks we got a "thank you so much, these are the most prettiest socks ever!" We went over to Bren & Megh's for a bit and when we got home Bri just stood in the middle of the kitchen and burst into tears. I asked what was wrong and she said that "Christmas is almost over and it won't be Christmas again for a long, long time and I LOVE Christmas." So funny. So Sad. So Brighton. I've never in my life seen someone so excited for Christmas. Love that girl.
