Christmas morning 2012

Pin It
Waking up, all together, Christmas morning was the best gift of all!

The littles woke up a little after 8am. Ivy's face was puffy again but she was happy and in great spirits. 
 We do stockings in the family room before anyone goes out to the living room to see what Santa left under the tree.
 Lexi would have been content just playing with the tiny little mermaids in her stocking all day and never even opening a present. She tells me, ~I'm happy with what I got and I don't need anything else~ LOVE this girl!!!!!
 Ivy loved the idea of opening more presents!!! She got so spoiled in the hospital getting packages every day that she see's a box and she screams PRESENTS!! BTW, on Lexi's birthday we got a huge huge box from Boston Childrens... they kindly packaged up the cards and gifts that continued to come after we left and mailed them to our home. So even though it was not her birthday, she had gifts to open that day too! Thank you everyone!
 Back to Christmas...... Our little couch potato got off the couch for a while to push her new bitty baby. It was not for long but we will take what we can get!
 She took her time getting off every bit of tape and paper.
 She loved the book her big sister got her!

Lexi was thrilled with her Special Agent Oso Bear. She loves this show! She got Dotty and Wolfie too.

 The big Santa gift was their tandem tricycle! The perfect set of wheels for this season of life. We pray that there will be a day when Ivy's heart will allow her all the normal activities of a child her age. But until then, she has been blessed with a sister who will lovingly drive her around on the back of her bike! Wearing a helmet of course!

 New skirts were a hit! Ivy's took over her entire lower body! So cute!

                                            And off they go!!!!

 Lexi could ride any bike forever. She is never ready to come home. So Ivy ended up falling asleep on the ride!
 Hope your Christmas was Merry and Bright!!!!!!!!!

Oh my goodness they are so precious!! I LOVE how Lexi is wearing her big ol' tutu with her cute pink rainboots!! Mine was the same way at that age and I miss it so much!! GREAT pictures!!! I think it's time for me to take Lisa's class. You ladies put me to shame!! ;)

Wonderful to see Ivy doing so well! Her progress has opened up my hubby to the idea of a heart baby. She's still touching hearts.

Hope 2013 is the best year yet!!!

Keep pedaling. I know the road is going to be longer yet...., but we have all of eternity to hang out and recover!
