Mama's aunt's house was decked out so festively for Christmas. She pulled out all of the stops this year since she knew everyone would be staying there. I thought it would be fun to take some pics around different parts of the house:
Here I am with all of the snowmen on top of the movie shelf.
This is Mama's aunt's really cool vintage cardboard fireplace. Mama says her aunt puts it up every Christmas.
The snack table, full of delicious goodies. I think I must have gained 5 pounds from all of the sweets!!
All I can say is yummm!! This is the gingerbread and fudge that Mama's other aunt makes every single year. Mama (along with everyone else) looks forward to it every Christmas.
Papa had a Christmas party at work and was given this pack of glass Coca-Cola bottles: my favorite!! It was a little hard for me to drink from them, though. :}
Check out this humongous pile of presents!! It sure was fun opening them!
Here I am next to Mama's aunt's beautiful Christmas tree.
There were even decorations in the bathroom!! See the cute little snowman soap dispenser on the right?
It was really fun in there...I'd never seen a full-length reflection of myself before. :)
On Christmas morning, I couldn't sleep, so I sneaked out (sneaked? snuck? I don't know) to peek at the tree before everyone else woke up. The colored lights were so beautiful! We just have white lights on our tree at home.
Christmas morning finally came, and with it, lots of excitement! Mama got each of her girls a doll for Christmas this year:
Josefina for her oldest...
Felicity for her middle daughter...
...and a Gotz Precious Day doll for her youngest (her youngest girl calls the doll Molly after the American Girl doll of the same name...Molly's her favorite, but Mama figured 2 1/2 was a little young to receive her first American Girl doll). :)
I got some presents, too!
Mama gave me this adorable Coca-Cola polar bear...she must have read my interview! :)
(Yes, I know my hair was a bit messy, but hey, it was Christmas morning!) :)
I also got a Squinkie kitty. I was so happy to have one of my very own...I've enjoyed seeing the other girls' Squinkies.
Here I am with my fun presents: some American Girl stickers, a Lemon Heads lunchbox, my Squinkie and Polar Bear, a Glitter lamp (like a lava lamp), and my Hot Wheels Nissan 370Z (it's one of Papa's favorite kinds of cars).
I had so much fun at my first Christmas!! It was nice to get back home and see all of my new friends again, though. I hope all of you had wonderful Christmases, too. God bless you! :)
P.S. Thanks, Tess and Maggie, for letting me post on your blog. :D
