More Christmas

Daddy's sister and her girls came to celebrate Christmas with us on Wednesday. They stayed at Dobbie and Papa's cabin. The first thing on the list of things-to-do was open presents according to the girls. There was lots of glee over what was inside the packages and oohs and aahs. Peanut got in on the excitement too. Dobbie and Papa gave each of the girls a special doll. Peanut's doll is the "Lamb of God" and they found an antique white wicker stroller for Peanut to push her around in. Peanut adores dolls and is a fantastic mommy to her dolls already. She carries them around, pats them, rocks them, and now even kisses them. So this newest addition to her little family will provide hours of nurturing and loving. I will try to get a better picture of her with her new baby to put up soon.

Dobbie and Aunt Leah spent the evening making liners for the older girls doll baskets. This ended up being a bit more work then they had planned on. It was fun to catch up while they were sewing away on liners. They turned out really cute.

On Thursday we celebrated Dobbie's birthday and Dobbie and Papa's anniversary. They married 38 years ago on Dobbie's birthday. How special is that? Daddy and I got them a sampler with their special names of Dobbie and Papa on it. I attached a picture. Their dog is even included in the sampler. I think it turned out so cute! I got it from Hearthside Collection a local crafter.

Happy Anniversary & Birthday Happy Anniversary & Birthday
We headed up north to KOHL'S!!! Each of us girls had Kohl's cash to spend. We spent some time there then all headed to Carraba's to eat supper. This was quite eventful with 2 toddlers. It was a fun evening with family.

All in all it was a great couple of days. I always enjoy being with Daddy's sister and her sweet girls. It was also fun to see Peanut warm up to playing with the cousins. She wasn't sure what to think at first but by the end of the visit was running around with them. I love to see her with family. There is nothing like family!
