Christmas morning

This morning was so exciting I was ready with the camera when Daddy brought Makenna in the room. She looked at all the new toys and said ohh. Makenna got to her new singing toy and wanted to stay there and not open anything else. We finally got her interest in the rest of her gifts. I think she loved her baby the most. She gave it lot's of kisses. Josh and Kayla was just as excited about there new items. Paw-Paw and Maw-Maw came to see us and asked if everyone got what they wanted and Josh and Kayla said that Mommy and Daddy didn't get anything. Daddy said what he got was a speeding ticket two days ago. Then Josh said and all that Momma wanted was Makenna to be here this year. He remembers me saying last Christmas that all I needed was for Makenna to be home where she belongs.

Our trip to McAdenville

On Wednesday we went to Christmas town to see the lights we go to see the lights every year. It was warm and we rolled the windows down and Makenna had the best time looking at all the lights. Santa Claus was giving out candy to all the cars. This was Makenna's first time seeing Santa she just looked at him a waved.

Let's just say it was amazing and Josh even made the same comment.We went to have our family pictures made for Christmas Makenna did not smile in any of them. This weekend starts the rush of going to all our families get togethers. We will be staying home for Christismas eve and day this year. Makenna is so funny when she see's Christmas decorations. I can't wait to see what she will do on Christmas morning.

Decorating for Christmas

We have decorated the outside of the house and put our tree up. Makenna just smiles when you turn the tree on. She is also a pro at taken the ornaments off. This will be Makenna's first Christmas since they don't celebrate in China. It is truly amazing watching her eyes lite up everytime she sees Christmas decorations. Our neighbors little girl gave Makenna her first power wheel Dora car. She would ride it all day if someone would just do the steering.
