Kyler’s First Christmas

28 Dec

I figured I better get this post out while it was still 2012. Kyler had a wonderful first Christmas and was such a trooper. A lot of people asked me which approach we would be taking…. buying her lots of gifts for just a few things since she really didn’t know what was going on. Of course we opted for lots of gifts because I LOVE Christmas and we need toys to fill that awesome playroom we have! (Well maybe we had enough but it’s an excuse).

On Christmas Eve, my parent’s came over for a casual dinner and to drop off the presents the night before. Poppa read Kyler a couple of Christmas books before bedtime.

Christmas morning came and Santa was good to us! Kyler’s first Christmas present!

She did pretty good opening up the gifts. She was definitely more interested in the actual gift than the paper though (that’s a good thing!)

We took the toys upstairs to the playroom and let her loose.

Later that evening, we headed over to Merritt Island to have dinner and a gift exchange at my Aunt Bunny’s house. This is Kyler with her cousin Emma.

After a long and fun day, we headed home and called it a night.

We had a very Merry Christmas and I am pretty certain Kyler had a blast. I have always loved Christmas but it was that much more special with Kyler. I couldn’t have asked for a better day and it was great to be surrounded by family. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and is gearing up for a Happy New Year!
