Christmas Happenings

We have been busy celebrating Christmas here in the Flick house. Over the weekend Peanut and I got to so see some friends that we haven't seen in awhile. My friend Christi who lives in California was here on Friday. We had fun catching up and playing with Peanut. We'll get to see her again before she heads home. She gave Peanut the cutest little red ladybug boots. Peanut wears them all the time at home. They will be perfect for spring mud puddles!

On Saturday we met up with a friend from college and her family. We met at Hacienda for lunch. They have a little boy who is 6 months older than Peanut. He and Peanut had fun watching each other and playing peek-a-boo.
Kiss, Kiss
After lunch Peanut and I did our Christmas shopping. I had not done any Christmas shopping yet. Thankfully we didn't have alot to get. We were blessed with a great sale at Kohl's where we found most of our Christmas gifts. On Sunday we did our Christmas cooking. We made caramels, cookies, rolls, and cinnamon rolls.

We had Christmas with Grandpa and Grandma Danner on Christmas Eve and spent some time with Grandpa's sister's family that night. Peanut had fun opening presents and socializing. She got a tea party set, princess mega blocks, a sled, and a Dora the Explorer big wheel. It was a fun day to relax, spend time with family and eat. We ate Christmas lunch with Grandpa of ham, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, rolls, and pumpkin pie. It was a late night for little Peanut. We got home around 12:30 a.m.

(Peanut's new thing is to ooh and ahh when she is excited. You can see the expression she gets in the pic above. It is so funny and cute.)

On Christmas Day we all slept in. Around 11:30 Dobbie and Papa came over and we opened gifts. By this point Peanut was really into gift opening. She did seem to get a little overwhelmed by it all and we didn't even have that much for her. She got some books, toddler markers, Dora vacuum, and a Sesame Street bib from Mommy and Daddy. Dobbie and Papa got her the cutest snowsuit. (Pics below.)

Ten years ago from Christmas Day Daddy asked me to marry him. To commemorate that day he got me a beautiful diamond bracelet and put it inside the same Christmas Boyd's bear that my engagement ring was in. The bracelet is very pretty and I was so surprised.

After presents we ate a yummy brunch. I made a Canadian Bacon Strata along with cinnamon rolls and hasbrowns. It was all good if I do say so myself. We spent the day watching a movie, talking, playing with toys, and playing cards. It was a fun and relaxing day together.

Here are some pics of Peanut in her new snowsuit.

Our Christmas is not over yet. We are heading to Dobbie and Papa's soon as Daddy's sister's family will be coming for a few days. More fun and family ahead!

We hope you all had a blessed Christmas and were able to enjoy family and friends!
