Myla's First Christmas

This year had to be the best Christmas yet. Of course, it has taken on whole new meaning now that Myla is in our lives. (And it snowed!!) With Christmas being a time to remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus, it has always been special to me. But now, after having Myla, I can only begin to fathom how much God loved his Son. Wow!
Seeing Myla completely enamored by the bows, ribbons, and wrapping paper was awesome. True, she could care less about what was inside those neatly wrapped gifts. One day she will...but for now it's nice to have her so easily entertained!

On Christmas Eve, we went out to Jeff's parents' house in McKinney. Granny and Papa had gifts waiting for Myla!

Myla thought her Daddy's old Fisher Price train was pretty neat. ;)

We took Myla to her first Christmas Eve service. She was a perfect angel. She only "spoke" when the pastor asked the congregation to bow their head in prayer.

When we got home from church, it was time to open gifts. Myla really seemed to like the books from Granny.
Myla definitely got some cool new toys. After spending some good family time with Jeff's parents, we drove home s-l-o-w-l-y on the icy roads (a little scary, but Jeff did a good job driving.)

The next morning, we woke up to see what Santa brought us in our stockings, had breakfast and waited for the ice to melt so we could go to Mom's for the day. We couldn't leave until noon but had such a great time once we got there.

Our little Christmas angels

More presents...

Yea! Mega blocks from Auny Kimmy and Uncle Clay. ;)

Myla loves her Rock and Bounce Pony from Jido and Nona!

Nana B got Myla this walker since she is so intent on going places these days.

As you can see, she is still needing a little more practice!

All presents aside, this was the best Christmas because of the little angel we received in April this year. She is such a blessing and continues to enrich our lives each day. I cannot even remember Christmas without her.
