Early Celebration with Granddad, Grandma Shelley, et. al.

The weekend before Christmas we enjoyed our guests, grandma shelley, granddad, uncle mason aunt brett, great uncle doug and great aunt sandy, cousin kelsey and of course macey, mader and izzy. libby had been standing in the window saying, "izzy, come" for days before izzy finally arrived. we had a great weekend, (despite mama's killer cold) playing pitch by the fire, eating hot soups, and of course, exchanging gifts. Libby re-learned about presents this Christmas, and she quickly found that she enjoys them. She had fun unwrapping each one, but couldn't be rushed - she was very deliberate. She then toted her new gift around the house and tried it out while everone else opened. She wasn't in a hurry to get to the next gift, but she enjoyed each one. We really enjoyed sharing Christmas with her.

granddad and grandma shelley got libby a sled, which she truly loves - and that's despite the fact that we have not yet had a snow (really!). once we drop out of the 40s and 50s and libby wakes to a white wonderland, mama's going to have a big challenge in finding a way to drag libby back into the house rather than play and sled through the yard!

Libby got so good at opening gifts she rushed over to help uncle mason.
