Christmas At Grandma and Grandpa Larsen's

When headed down to Utah Friday morning and hung out with Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Daren.  Ryleigh got to open her pjs Christmas Eve and Dad tried reading her the picture book version of the Christmas story.  She only sat through one page of it.

Devin woke up every hour that night asking if Ryleigh was awake yet.  It was a LONG night.  She finally woke up at 7:30.  We walked out to the living room and it took her a minute to realize what Santa had brought.

 When she saw it she said, "Baby, my baby!"  Of course she wanted Dad to open it right away.

Here she sits with all of her stocking goods.

We had to use the new nail polish Santa brought before we could open any more gifts.

We got her some dress up shoes and jewlery.  She new exactly how to wear it all when the package was opened.

Grandma and Grandpa McDowell sent her some bottles and dishes for her new baby.

Christmas afternoon the rest of the family came over and we exchanged gifts, played games and had homemade soup.  Ryleigh was not a big fan of her 1 year old cousin Amaryah and for sure wasn't a fan when Mom or Dad held her.  She wanted nothing to do with her.  She finally warmed up to her and decided she wasn't so bad Sunday afternoon.  They sat on Grandma's bed for a long time with Ryleigh giving Amaryah hugs and kisses.  Grandma got them their matching dresses.
