Christmas Memories 2009

Hailey had a big smile as she walked over to her stocking!She was SO excited to see her new Willy cat sticking out of her stocking. I prepped her for this day by letting her play with Willy every time I would wrap gifts in the office. My hope had been that she would be excited to see him on Christmas morning - and my plan worked!
Christmas morning - in our pj's.
Hailey got to see her cousins Saben and Annika
My dad was shocked to find an xbox under the wrapping paper!
Uncle Kyle read Hailey her new book.
Hailey enjoyed eating all the wrong things (including her first cookies on the day after Christmas!!)

Eating breakfast on the day after Christmas (Christmas day breakfast eating looked much the same!).

Pierogi - a Ukrainian tradition for our family (my mom is 1/2 Ukrainian).All of Pete's side and my parents came to our house for lots of eating and gingerbread man making. Sylvia made the gingerbread women pictured above.
