Christmas at Nana and Papa's

At my mother's house I received a very fantastic new toy for my camera...an external flash!  My ridiculously awesome friend Rae of Rae Leytham Photography had a very expensive one that she was willing to sell so I set her up with my mother's email address and they made it happen!  I put it on once we got to Chris's parents' house. I am in love with the below picture just because I could take it.  The lighting is so yummy!

Once again, Maddie was the present opener.



They got Melissa and Doug puzzles from Chris's Aunt Judy and Maddie absolutely LOVES them.  The day after Christmas she put the above truck puzzle together all by herself CORRECTLY!

Jackson didn't want to be in a picture with the girl cousins Jamie, Bella, and Emma (note the fabulous lighting :-)

Teo got that same Little People farm for Christmas. He also has that vehicle Melissa and Doug puzzle. He loves it too. I wish our kids could have a playdate. :)
