Christmas in January

Since we were in KC for the holidays this year, we didn't have a chance to celebrate Christmas with Scott's mom's side of the family.  So, last weekend, we went to Scott's mom and stepdad's house, and had fun watching Ava open her gifts.  She approached the whole process with the non-hurried way she did in KC, and since she had so many wonderful gifts to open from Grandma and Grandpa and Great-Grandma, it took quite a while!

After all of the gifts were opened, we enjoyed a very yummy pizza dinner from Old World pizza.  Nothing says Christmas like a sauerkraut pizza! :)  This was our first time having dinner in the newly remodeled kitchen...and it looks fabulous!  Ava looked so little in her high chair next to the big snack bar.

Peek-a-boo...I see you!  Those words kept coming from this package...



It's a doll that plays peek-a-boo all on its own. 
Luckily, there is also an off-switch.  It kept talking at Great-Grandma's house for weeks before Ava received it!

So determined...



Ava loves the light-up shoes she received from Grandma and Grandpa - if she's not wearing them, she will hit the bottom of the shoes to make them light up.  Clever little girl!

One last thought for the day...GO VIKES!

Ahhh- aren't toys that talk or make noise on their own so fun?!? :) I hate it when they go off and NO ONE is around- so creepy!
