The Most Wonderful Time of Year!

We spent our Christmas in Seattle this year with JD's family. We had a fabulous time, and we got to do so many fun things! Morgan got so many nice presents from all her grandparents, and I can't imagine ever buying her another toy again (Ha, ya right). She loved playing with her cousins, and loved the snow.

Morgan did great on the plane to and from. She got nervous during take off and nearly climbed on top of JD's head. He had to literally peel her off, but once we were in the air, she did great! (Thanks to a portable DVD player....NEVER traveling without that!)

Here's some of the highlights of our trip!

We went to Leavenworth, a little German town north of Seattle...we had to drive through the mountains to get there...the view was unreal! Felt like we were in the Swiss Alps.

We stayed in this amazing cabin! It was really nice!

Opening presents from Hamma!

Poor baby got sick on Christmas Eve and had to borrow her cousin Luke's pjs since I didn't bring any over to their house...she totally looks like a boy!

Got a fun baby doll play set; even has a baby bjorn!

If Dora can fit in here, then surely I can too!

Opening her computer from Grandpa

After about 30 attempts we got this cute picture of the 4 cousins

Sweet Maddie and Morgan

Morgan got a Dora backpack from Hamma and was proud to have her very own carry on bag in the airport!

Santa came the morning after we got home (on the 30th) and brought her a retro kitchen...she LOVES it!

Santa also brought her a chef's outfit

Stroller and kitty from Santa, and the shoes are from Grandma

Happy New Year!

May 2010 bring you health, love, and happiness!
