Merry Christmas

Ryan and I got up a little earlier than usual this morning and got ready and waited and waited for Olivia to get up.  Boy, I remember waking my parents up very early in the morning to open presents.  Thankfully, she hasn’t done that to us. . .yet.  Olivia just took her own time.  She was excited to learn, however, that Santa had visited our house overnight. 


Here she is running down the hallway to see the presents!

A My Little Pony!


A Squinkie Zoo!!  Just what I wanted!!!


And she stopped to play Squinkies. . .

Those are a lot of Littlest Pet Shop animals.  I appreciated the nice, metal case to keep them in though.

We laughed about this being the “tiny” Christmas as most of the things she got were tiny (and hard to keep track of.)  Have you seen the Teeny Tiny Littlest Pet Shop?  She got some of those too and already lost her beloved teeny butterfly.  Hmm. . .maybe big things aren’t that bad after all.  That’s what she likes, though. . .tiny, little animals. 


Okay, back to opening presents.  This morning, we got a call from my dad to tell us that my grandma had fallen and was taken to the hospital.  Last Christmas, we received a call that my grandpa was being taken to the hospital.  I really don’t like to receive these phone calls.  She was taken, however, as a precaution and checked out fine.  She was even able to make it to Christmas dinner and I was so grateful.

My husband completely spoiled me this Christmas (and went way over our agreed upon limit!) He got me not only dishes and clothes and books and CDs and pajamas, but an iPad 2 as well.  I completely didn’t deserve all of that.  I’m really enjoying it all and I know Olivia will love the iPad as well.  She loves my iPhone.  But, I owe my husband. . .big time. 


Here is Olivia opening her stocking from her Great Great Aunt Mary.

And here is Princess Olivia wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!!
