December wrap-up

My favorite month of the year didn't let me down. I was so excited all year to share this month with Graysen and what a fun time we had.

She had LOTS of Christmas P.J's

and ya'll know I love my tutus (someone really should block me from Etsy)

as well as my headbands.

Our only adult party of the year was our annual Ferrari Christmas Party. Too bad I got really sick and ruined our stay in town. Thanks to my husband for being so sweet about it all and taking care of me.
We watched old Christmas classics at night.

 We had a girls afternoon adventure to the St. regis for the Teddy Bear Tea. We loved it.
 Aunt Sara met us there and we wore our crowns all day. 

We had our annual friend's Christmas dinner. This year it was at Ryan and Terie's. Ryan got dressed up for this special occasion. Our group really loves wine and Brandi put together a very fun game for us. We had a wine tasting and had to match the wine with the list provided. Many of them were wineries we have visited. Apparently our group needs to go to them again.


Grandma Donnie surprised us by putting lights out in our yard. Graysen loved looking at them every night.

 I had a few Martha Stewart moments.

 We decorated a Gingerbread train. Shawn didn't do it all. The whole back part was my creation. We did most of it after she went to sleep and there was lots of laughter.

 This little dancing tree cracked her up. She is trying to give it milk.
 We love the Sound of Music. We both know all the words and if it is on in our house we will be singing it. She seemed to like it too.

I went to the Nutcracker with these girls. I really wanted to take Graysen but she wouldn't have made it through. Next year, next year. She wanted to be in the big girl picture before we left.

Grandma Donnie loves going to Santa's Wonderland every year. She has tried to get us to go many times and I am so sad I never listened to her. We were missing out. The hay ride was a few minutes over G's attention span ability, but everything else was a blast.
