Annelise's First Christmas

We decided to celebrate our family Christmas on Christmas Eve this year since Drew has to work Christmas Day.  And, Annelise doesn't understand the whole Santa thing and that he's supposed to come Christmas Day yet.  Annelise must have been a good girl because Santa brought her a pretty neat gift.
I ordered this activity cube a few months ago and have been so excited to give it to her!  She's still warming up to it, but I really think that she's going to like it.

After we let her play with the cube for a little bit, we opened her stocking.
She got a few things for the bath tub, and a bunch of books.  After her stocking, we opened up gifts and then took a few more pictures.
We always have the family party for my side of the family on Christmas Eve.  Annelise was a little shy at first, but eventually opened up and explored some.
"Can I have some of that, Auntie"
We've had such a great day and I'm really looking forward to a couple years from now when Annelise understands what Christmas means and is excited about it.  Of course, Jesus is the reason for the season!  I already have plans to buy her a cute nativity scene for next year!
