We had a nice Christmas here in Italy with Mark’s family. Abbie made it fun because she’s now at an age where she’s an active participant. It’s fun to see her reaction to things. It made me miss my family though. This isn’t my first Christmas away from them, but it doesn’t really get easier. Hopefully next year we can do Christmas with them.
Here are a few pictures from the last couple of days. Okay, maybe more than a few.
(Abbie finally likes to wear hats occasionally. She’s always asking me to put this one on her.)
(A dress my mom got her.)
(Trying to get a decent picture in front of the tree, but she was throwing a fit about her boots.
(The new boots Mark’s mom got her. She didn’t like them at all at first, but now she’s used to them. They’re adorable. And I think that dress is from my mom too.)
(Reading with daddy.)
(Dancing with daddy.)
(Abbie wasn’t cooperating for this photo shoot.)
(Our 2010 Christmas photo. Too bad it was dark out already or we would have taken it outside. Oh, and it was raining, for the 3rd day…)
(Abbie dancing. She LOVES to dance. And she always needs a dance partner which is usually a bear or a doll.)
(Entertaining the crowd.)
(My new boots! And Mark’s new boots. And my sweater dress from my mom.)
(Abbie on Christmas morning.)
(Our tree before we started opening gifts.)
(Abbie opening all her gifts.)
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, surrounded by ones you love.
