Very early Christmas morning, as I was about to fall asleep from Up-All-Night-Wrapping, I hear little pitter patter of feet coming down the hall. Ugh! Time to get up & find energy somewhere. Shay was standing there,mesmerized by the pile of mishaped, wrapped objects that were covered in ribbons, bows & tags. Majority of the pile for her 4 year old little self. She got everything she asked for, literally EVERYTHING 🙂 Leap Frog Click Start My First Computer, Barbie Laptop, Princess Dress-Up Set,  Cookie the dog that barks & what not, the big Tangled doll & vanity, Baby Alive, yup the one that eats & poops. Im gonna have to set up a college fund for toys here soon lol. Had to purchase diapers & food mix for a doll :\ She also got alot of clothing ( outfits,hoodies,pjs,panties), DVDs, Barbies, Color Wonder Stuff & many, many other wonderful gifts. We already did our early gift exchange at Linda’s. Neil & I also recieved nice gifts & I got a bunch of Hello Kitty stuff lol 🙂


We then journed to my Aunt’s for supper to do the big fam-jam sesh. Christmas was great. I wish I had more pictures to post.Shaylyn in her new hoodie.



Our Gingerbread House that Neil, Shay & I decorated 🙂
