Christmas 2009

By Mom | January 23, 2010

Well, it’s nearly been a month since Christmas and I’ve just got around to blogging about it. Better late than never I always say. I’m doing my best people! 😉

As with every year, we begin our Christmas festivities with a Christmas Eve party with the extended Dykes Family. This is when Grace and Cole get to see their cousins and open a ton of presents. After getting all dressed up in her pretty Christmas dress, Grace posed with Great Grandma Dorothy for a picture.

Grace was so excited to see her cousins Taylor and Emily all dressed up too.

First it was time to make Christmas cards at the craft table.

Then it was holiday carol karaoke time.

We tried to get all the kids on the couch for a quick shot. I think we’re missing one.

The kids even make up their own poses.

After a quick dinner of clam chowder, it was present opening time!

On Christmas morning we had to wake Grace up. She must have played hard the night before.

What did Santa bring her you ask? Well, she really didn’t want to find out at first. For some reason I think she was freaked out by the surprise of a gift from Santa. Eventually, Grace got to see her special princess scooter.

She couldn’t wait to go outside to try it out so the kitchen will have to do.

Then it was time for presents from the rest of the family. And by the way family, we are definitely putting a present limit this year. As you can see, Grace was a bit overwhelmed by all the thoughtful presents she received. She loved it.

Later that morning we visited my mom in Moreno Valley where Grace got more presents. Yikes! She loves getting to play with cousin Navaeh.

But she likes Navaeh’s swing set best.

Thank you everyone for making Grace’s 4th Christmas so special.
