My 2nd Christmas

Enjoying it so far

She got a stuffed lion that she just had to kiss and hug


She received a Learning Tablet from a couple in our small group. The volume is set so incredibly loud and there isn't a volume switch. After a few hours, we pulled out the duct tape and covered the speaker on the back to dull the noise a little




She got a $1 slinky in her stocking and it was her favorite gift though I still don't think she knows what to do with it

Are you supposed to eat it?

Need to take a water break

Her first birthday party went well. We didn't really get many pictures of guests or many pictures at all. For some reason I really don't feel too bad about it.









My first car (sort of)
