The Real Reason

Mommy and Daddy are teaching me the real reason we celebrate Christmas. It's Jesus' birthday. We talk about the Christmas story and how God sent His son to earth to save all of us from our sins. We started a tradition this year that I can't wait to do again next year. We got a beautiful advent calendar that has magnetic pieces of the nativity. The last piece, that we opened on December 24, was baby Jesus. I loved opening the door each night and finding out what we had that day.

Christmas Eve and Day

Daddy's side of the family came into town to celebrate Christmas with me. Boy did we have fun! I'll tell you a little about some of the pictures as you look through them.
Aunt Cheri gave me a matching rhino tatoo! (Don't worry's just a sticker)

Hanging out with Aunt Andi
Hmmm...What can I get into tonight???
What do you mean I can't open it??? It has my name on it!

Our happy family
Nana made all her kids a photo album of their childhood. Daddy is looking through his. Great gift Nana!
Chillin' with Nana

Even Poppie likes his!

Just wanted to show off my big smile

Christmas Morning...Santa came to visit!
I'm still a little sleepy, but it looks like Noah's ark

Poppie and I have our own secret hand shake. He's the first one I crawled to on Christmas morning. I love you Poppie!!!

He got a gift card for a scope from Academy

Aunt Andi reading me my new book. (Aunt Cher, this is the only one I could find that didn't have your phone in it!)
I got Daddy a Rubiks cube. Guess we'll see how smart he really is!
I gave Mommy a picture of me and her
Mommy and Daddy gave me a table that does all kind of things. Even's all about food!
Speaking of food. This was in my stocking
Thank you for my pony Nana and Poppie. I love riding it!
