Christmas 2007

I think this was the best Christmas I’ve ever had! It was so unbelievably fun to see the kids open presents and enjoy everything. Hannah seemed to get a lot out of the Jesse Tree this year, and didn’t notice that we didn’t have a regular Christmas tree. In fact, when we got to my parents’ house, Hannah kept calling their Christmas tree a Jesse tree too.

My parents with the kids. Too bad Hannah was looking at ornaments instead of the camera!
Gigi showed Hannah how to work the German jumping boy ornament.
“I don’t know what all this stuff is, but it sure looks promising!”
The stockings, hung by the chimney with care…
Hannah gives my brother, Thomas, a big hug
Thomas had to work Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (the perils of being in the restaurant business) so he opened his presents early
Hannah got a purple My Little Pony. I ADORED My Little Pony as a kid, so I’m really psyched that they still have them now that I have a daughter to play with them. I wish I had saved all of my old ones but oh well.

I got a fabulous new omelet pan!
Jack’s huge wagon full of Mega Blocks
Thomas gave Hannah a book, which she promptly started “reading” to us
Jack really likes the shape sorter puzzle my aunt Fran gave him. This boy is really into blocks and trucks already!
Thomas’ girlfriend True gave Hannah a sweet puppy and a bottle of baby wash and washcloth set. Hannah decided the baby wash was a bottle for the puppy, which was funny. Ever the diligent little mama, Hannah conscientiously takes the puppy to the toilet and puts him down for regular naps.
The big event: Hannah’s awesome tricycle from Gigi and Grandad! This has got to be the coolest trike around.
The kiddos enjoy their stuffed animals from True.
Thomas gave Hannah a neat bubble maker machine, and Grandad taught her how to use it.

Isn’t he a sweet boy?!
