We had a really fun Christmas this year! Julianne was in awe of the tree, the presents, and really happy that her grammy and papa were here! My parents arrived on Christmas Eve and Julianne was very happy to see them. Tickles from papa
Showing them her "touchdown" move
The fun started immediately with drops, turns and upside downs from papa
After we put Julianne to bed on Christmas Eve, my dad and Shaun got to work assembling the kitchen that my parents got for her (lots of little parts). I'm sure this is what most of our Christmas Eve's will look like for the next several years!
Coming downstairs Christmas morning
What's going on?
Checking out her kitchen from afar
Oh my, look at all that stuff for me!
Checking out her kitchen
Pushing her new shopping cart
Looking at all the presents
Doing a Christmas boogie
Standing on my present
ripping into it
How am I going to open all of this stuff?
She became a fast pro at ripping open the wrapping paper
Playing with her new pots and pans
Filling up the cupboards of her kitchen
Her first purse complete with cell phone and credit card!
Getting the goods out of her stocking
What else is in there?
New bath toy!
Fascinated with the new bath toy
taking ornaments off the tree
Christmas cutie!
Got my apron on - ready to cook!
Hugs from grammy
We cleaned up all the paper and put it into a garbage bag...turned our backs for about 30 seconds and then saw this:
That's her under the garbage bag
The wrapping paper was as fun as the presents
She had so much fun making a mess out of what we had just cleaned up
The rest of the day there was a lot of cooking going on in that kitchen! She loves it!
It took nearly all day for Julianne to open her gifts...she wanted to play with every single thing she opened right when she opened it. So we had a relaxing 8 hours of opening gifts and watching her play. She still has a present that we haven't given her yet. More pictures to come of the rest of her presents - thanks to everyone who sent something for her - we are blessed with wonderful family and friends! We hope your Christmas was as merry as ours!

I love her nightgown!! Leia got the same pots & pans and will be getting her kitchen soon. The one we want was out of stock for Christmas, so looks like it'll be her Valentine's gift. Looks like you all had a really fun Christmas and she must love cooking for you guys.
