Merry Christmas

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. Avery enjoyed all of her presents and this was the first year Santa came to her house, the last few years Santa came to PaPa and MeMe's. Being Santa came to Avery's house we had to do lots of running around. We went to the Christmas Eve service with Mom and Dad on Wednesday evening and then went out to Robert and Deborah's for the Hodde Christmas. We then came back to Humble, got home around 12:30 a.m. Santa came to the house and by 9:30 a.m. Christmas morning we were on the road to Brenham again for Borchardt and Schulz Christmas. Thank goodness it isn't too far away.
Putting Reindeer food in the yard, so the Santa knew he had to stop at Avery's house.

Avery is not a morning person, but you would think Christmas morning would be different, not for Avery she saw all the presents Santa had left her and then goes and laying on the couch.

When Avery sat on Santa's lap she told him she wanted a baby doll. Well, a week before Christmas she changed her mind saying she wanted a race car. After seeing the four wheeler she again asked for a race car and we asked if the four wheeler was ok and she said yes. Thank goodness.

Look what else Santa brought.

Enjoying her four wheeler. She needs lots of practice.

Christmas Cookies

We baked Christmas cookies yesterday, we did this for the first time last year. It went smoother this year, however we still had a huge mess. Avery enjoyed decorating the cookies. She really liked using the pink sprinkles, can you tell?

Our Medalist

Avery had her last gymnastics class on Wednesday and at the end of the class she was presented a medal. She was not too sure about having all the attention on her when she was getting her medal.

Let It Snow, Let It Snow

I was in a meeting at work around 4 and all of a sudden everyone outside of the conference room was saying it's snowing outside. We all ran out of our meeting to the window like we have never seen it before. I guess it is because it doesn't happen very often in our area. By the time we got home it was dark, but I did get a few pictures of Avery in it. I am hoping the ground will be white in the morning and I can take a few more. It will probably be 70 degrees Christmas Day.

Look at me, I can catch snow on my tongue.

My slide has snow on it. BRRRRR

Is that snow I am catching?
