Everyone kept telling us how great this Christmas was going to be with Cadence, and it was, but she still doesn't understand how to open a present. She was fascinated with the lights on the trees and the music and all the visitors. We did Christmas #1 on Christmas Day with Nana and Dadder, and Christmas #2 today with Dassa and Papa.
Christmas Day really was fun. I actually enjoyed cooking a big meal and we just took our time opening presents since Cadie would open one and then want to play with it. Here are just a few pictures of some of her favorite things that day.
This is one of our three trees. Yes, three. We found two left behind in our attic by previous owners. This is the biggest and prettiest.
She was more interested in the ornaments than the boxes underneath.
A box full of pompoms. Fun for toddlers and the cats that live with them. Rainey keeps stealing these so we're trying to keep them in the box. Cadie likes to take them out and put them back in the box. Or in other things. I imagine in a few months I'll be finding these all over the house.
This gift was a fave. Nana and Dadder got her a tea set and she loves it. She pours tea in the cups and gives it to us to drink. She plays the songs on the teapot over and over.
Cadie also got Crayola TaDoodles. She loves to color with the crayons she got for her birthday, so now she has markers too. They really are washable because she drew on her jeans and it came right out.
And speaking of which, isn't her sweater adorable? It was kelly green with these fun little felt embroidered ornaments on the front. I wish she could keep wearing it, but it would probably look silly in January.
