I'm a little late w/ this post, but better late than never!
We had such a great Christmas this year, and what a difference a year makes in Izzy Land! We took her on evening drives to look at Christmas lights, and even hit up the botanical gardens to see their light show. Watching her get so excited about seeing the lights for the very first time was just the coolest thing ever. Every "ooooo" and "awwww" I heard from her made it even better. Even though she's still too young to completely understand, we started teaching her about the true meaning of Christmas. Hearing her little voice say Jesus makes me overflow with emotion. Tearing up again just thinking about it! Is there anything sweeter?!
Like I had mentioned in another post, the play kitchen was a hit. As was her little vacuum. My only regret is that we should have bought her a REAL vacuum. She has that little thing turned on ALL the time. The buzzing sound it makes will forever be rattling around in my head. If it actually worked, I would never have to vacuum again :D
