Merry Christmas

I realize I'm a little late on the Christmas post, but better late than never. This year we had planned on going to Arizona for the holidays but because of my bedrest we had to stay home. Although we missed seeing family, it was nice to have a quiet Christmas with just the 3 of us. This is the first year that Lexi got into Christmas and was so excited about Santa coming and bringing her a toy robot. Originally we planned on only getting her a couple presents, but between grandparents and aunts and uncles she ended up with quite a few presents. It was a fun day and we really enjoyed our last Christmas in Texas.

I think her favorite toy was the dollhouse which stands about a foot taller than her. She was so surprised and excited when she saw it that she didn't want to open the other presents. Notice the robot at the bottom of the picture. For some reason Lexi got it in her head that she wanted Santa to bring her a robot. Thankfully my mother found one that fit Lexi's description and made her pretty happy.
Lexi got several dolls and doll accessories. I'm expecting her to get really into her dolls once the baby arrives.
Jeff thought he'd brush up on his parenting skills with one of Lexi's dolls.
Lexi reached a point where she was so overwhelmed with toys that she had to take a break from opening presents and survey all the new loot.
Jeff really wanted to get Lexi a tent for inside the house, but the store was sold out of the kid-sized tents so we ended up buying a really inexpensive dome tent. The only problem is that it is 7' x 7' and takes up our entire living room. She does love to play in it though.
Worn out after a long day of present opening and playing with new toys.
