Christmas 2011 (Part 4)

Christmas Day finally arrived (a little sooner than I realized). Here is a shot of what Santa left her before she was able to see it:

On Christmas morning, we took a slight detour from our usual route to the kitchen and showed her the new toys in the living room. I put her down and she immediately went over to the doll house. She's been doing a lot of imaginative play with her other dolls so Santa knew she was ready for a doll house. She played with it all morning.

When Daddy put her breakfast on the table, she grabbed it and brought it into the living room next to her doll house.

Before getting her ready for church, she noticed another new toy Santa had brought:

She was not very happy about being taken away from her toys to get ready for church. But we had to do what we had to do. After we left the house, she had already forgotten what she was leaving behind. Church was lovely... good talks, good music. Bridget loves music so much so she enjoyed herself quite a bit.

After coming home, we Skyped with my parents so that they could see her open some of her presents. She really got into opening the presents this year.

After we got off the computer with them, she went back to playing:

She stayed in her Christmas dress all day and didn't even take a nap. Normally that would be a bad thing but she wasn't cranky at all. Just very busy. We all had a very enjoyable Christmas. I loved not having to spend any time in the kitchen except heating up the leftover ham from Christmas Eve. I think I will be doing the same thing again next year.

A day or two after Christmas, my husband wanted to get a picture of all of Bridget's new toys so that we remember what she got this year.
