|Baby's First Christmas|
1. Having a fancy dinner on Christmas Eve using my Christmas plates from Germany.
2. Reading the Christmas story in the Bible and acting it out. We also sang several Christmas hymns while reading (like "Away in a Manger" when we read about Christ's birth). This year we acted it out with my wooden nativity pieces, but only because we thought it might be too much to have Sophia dress up and act as every character. :)

|Sophia loved her pants from Aunt Lissa. They look SO cute on her!|
The first picture is Tyler's reaction to me saying, 'Tyler! That's a girl hoodie!" But I was just messin' with him so he could smile in the second picture. I have a handsome brother!
|Sophia was sad she only got to open ONE present on Christmas Eve!|
|Sophia looked ADORABLE in her Santa suit from Jamie, and she was very interested in watching me open all of her presents for her.|

Sophia was a CHAMP on the airplane! She took over a 3 hour nap before we got on the plane (including sleeping while I carried her through security), had a bottle during take-off, was VERY interested in looking around at everything, and dozed off before we landed. Plus she charmed everyone with her outfit. :)
