Christmas 2011

Christmas has come and gone. We had fun. Laura was beyond excited and had a great Christmas. In early December, she went with Jeff to the Phoenixville Christmas parade. I couldn't go because I went to the Christmas concert at the Christmas college.

Laura decorated the tree beautifully. She loves to decorate. I felt terrible because the day I began to decorate, I started when she was at school. Well the look on her face when she found out, you would've thought her best friend had died. So I quickly gave her something to do. We had to wait on the tree because of the renovation. I didn't dare do the tree without her nor would I want to.

Next December, I'll definitely wait for Laura to do all.

I started Christmas shopping before black Friday. I kept looking at deal daily and picked up deals. My attendant would help me wrap as they came in. I, of course, brought Laura way too much.

Her reaction on Christmas morning was funny. First of all, she slept in until 8:45am! Last year it was after 9 and we had to physically wake her. She came out and Jeff and I were already waiting for her in the living room. She sat on the couch and asked, "why so much??" I laughed to hear her wonder why she a so much.

My father came over and watched her open her gifts. He was thrilled that he could experience it.

So Laura was given a fisher price pull dog when she was one. Probably about a year ago, she didn't play with it anymore and I donated it to charity. Well, every few months after that, she would tell me how much she missed the puppy. So I got one last minute for her on Amazon for $5.

When she opened it, her eyes filled with tears and she hugged it. She exclaimed, "I thought I'd never see you again!!" it was the most adorable sight to see ever.

My dad got Laura one of those Barbie jeeps. She loves it and looks cute driving it all over the backyard. Jeff's parents gave her all kinds of neat presents and beautiful clothes. My mom got her a mini trampoline for outside. And our siblings also got her wonderful gifts too.

When I asked Laura what was her favorite part about Christmas, she said that it was Jesus's birthday. I knew we were on the right track.
