Christmas Come Early

Posted on December 20th, 2011 by Tonia 5 Comments

Our Christmas weekend with Mike’s family was wonderful and relaxing, complete with delicious food, good conversation, an adorable baby niece to entertain us, and huge cozy chairs to doze in.

We made our niece a rocking horse and gave it to her on “Christmas morning” with a red ribbon tied around its neck. She loved it, and wanted to sit on it to open her other presents.

Uncle Mike read her a story…

…Giving Mom a nice break.

Besides a disappointing Packers game {13-1}, it was a perfect weekend. But who can be upset about football when there is this much cuteness happening? Amelia rocking on her horsey {with her blanket, “Keekoo”}:

Now we’re off to my family’s house to do Christmas again. Gosh I love this time of year.

    you guys have mad skills, that is an amazing horse! Did you name it or did Amelia?

    What a beautiful and thoughtful way to share Christmas memories – they’ll be with all of you forever. Beautiful horse too – you are both very talented.
