Our little family
Madie had been after the presents for weeks, she was SO ready to open them!
Is it time Mom??
Making cookies for Santa. I thought Madie would observe mostly, help decorate.
She decided to take a real "hands on" approach! Ha!
She even took a bite of one of the gingerbread cookies when I wasn't looking! Mimi thought it was hilarious!
Ready for the Big Man's arrival
Finally, it was time for Madie to open presents! She had so many - Mimi, Granddad, Uncle Case, Uncle Chad, Aunt Kelly and Cooper were very generous!
Uncle Case even got her a cross bow! If you're going to hunt, might as well be pink.
She LOVED her new kitchen from Chad, Kelly and Coop
Here she is with her very first babydoll from Mommy and Daddy! Mimi and Granddaddy gave her a stroller too!
Cooper is SUCH a hard little worker. I tried and tried to get a picture of him but he was too busy sweeping and mopping with his new cleaning equipment. Hahaha!
And here it is folks, fun in the biggest box they could find!
Putting out our cookies for Santa
The sweet kiddos before bed on Christmas Eve.
Notice anything about this picture? We LOVE Uncle Case.
Santa came all the way to Abilene to see Madie...............
He even ate the cookies!
Here is Madie examining all she got! She must have been really good this year.
Cooper was SO excited about his outdoor kitchen! He cooked from the moment he saw it until it was loaded in the car the next day. He even showed Madie how to cook too. She loved everything her big cousin loved.

Madie playing in her new house!
We had a GREAT first Christmas!!
Most of all, we had a blast with our family. Christmas is so very special as we celebrate the birth of Jesus and what his birth means to us all. We are so very thankful for the blessing of an amazing, generous and fun family! Madie Lou - remind me to tell you about the rubberbands some day! ;) Hahahaha
