Dave and I both had Christmas Eve and Christmas off this year. We loved being able to spend the whole weekend together with Reagan. Now that she is 14 and a half months old she is so much fun to watch get into the chrismas spirit. She actually said Ho Ho Ho when I asked her what does santa say? Of course that was after sitting with her for a half hour pointing to santa and saying ho ho ho.
We started the festivities off with christmas eve dinner. Dave wanted to make a roast because he never gets it otherwise because I don't like it. But we compromised and made the roast. It was actually very good....yes that's right I even had some. Dave did a very good job on it. The rolls however didn't survive. We have had a hard time getting our rolls to rise in the past. They look like they are going to make it in this picture but sadly they didn't.

Since it is a tradition to open one gift on christmas eve we started with Reagan. She enjoyed the box a lot. She loves to climb on things and be high...which might be a problem when she gets older but for now it's cute. She's been sick so we got her a humidifier.
Christmas morning opening her presents with mommy.
These are gifts from her Nanna and Poppy. The bucket was from her Daddy to put all her toys in, since she is getting quite the collection of toys now.
As you can see she was very excited about the whole thing.
We celebrated some more with a big breakfast.
Reagan was still enjoying herself. She thought it was all very amusing.

Dave's brother Richie made us these awesome hats for christmas. We love them so much, they each fit us perfectly.
We had a wonderful Christmas together as a fairly new family. I know that as Reagan gets older she will enjoy the holidays more and more. Hopefuly as much as I do :-)
These are just the first of many many wonderful family memories and traditions to come.
