Christmas 2012

 Again I'm sorry for the two posts in one night.  Our Christmas was all packed into 2 days this year.  It started on Christmas Eve at Granny & Papa's in Bovina.
Jaycee "tickling" everyone
Jaycee and Nonni
 Jaycee hadn't quite got the concept of gifts down yet.  She was much more interested in playing in the empty boxes.
Jaycee and Moo all ready for bed and for Santa to come
 But Jaycee did have the concept of "giving gifts" down.  I have to tell this story, it is so cute.  A couple days before Christmas I was in the kitchen cooking and all of a sudden Jaycee comes into the kitchen with a pink gift bag and something in it.  So I was wandering where she got it and what she had in it.  Apparently she had got into the gift wrapping cabinet and got it out and then went in the bathroom and got bars of soap out and put in it.  So I asked her jokingly "Oh Jaycee is that for Daddy?" and then I went back to cooking.  Well later I went into the living room and Jaycee had put that gift with the others under the tree.  The next morning I was putting stuff under the tree and the gift looked like it had tissue paper in it.  So I was thinking "Wow she even put nice tissue paper in there, but where did she find that?".  Well I reached into the bag and it wasn't the tissue paper I was thinking it was.  She had emptied a bunch of wipees in there to look like tissue paper.  So stinkin cute!  So on Christmas morning Daddy got to open up Jaycee's gift of the wipees and soap!

 After we did gifts at home Christmas morning we then had Christmas at Grumps & Nonni's.

 Jaycee more excited to beat on the box!
 We then had Christmas that afternoon at Grandma Kay's, but I forgot to take any pictures.  We then hurried home and had Christmas with Pappy at our house that night.

 Jaycee finally figured out the whole present thing by the last Christmas we had
We had such a great Christmas season this year and we can't wait until next year to share it with two little girls!

So Behind

I am so incredibly far behind on blogging and I am sorry.  I'm going to break up December into two posts sorry.  The middle of December we finally got to go to Tennessee and visit my Uncle Bruce and Aunt Roxanne.  We had such a great time and really enjoyed getting to see their new home and see some rain!
We had to go to Bass Pro Shop while we were there and Jaycee just loved the talking Reindeer!
 Jaycee also loved the "fishies"

So glad they let us come visit and stay for a week!
 Finally a family picture
 Jaycee also had fun getting to play with all her cousins.  She got to play with both sets two different days and we really enjoyed getting to see all of them as well.
Jaycee didn't know what to think taking a bath with these two boys.
 Lofton and Jaycee watching it rain.  Yes, it does rain there unlike here!
 Playing with the nativity scene
Thank you Aunt Roxanne and Uncle Bruce for having us.  We had a lot of fun and it was great to get to see some different country than here.
