Baby's First Christmas

Ellie's first Christmas has officially come and gone, and her play area received a complete makeover in the process.  From cars to horses, purses to singing story books, Cabbage Patch babies to her first Wii game, my kid got spoiled this year.

I have a feeling this is just the beginning...
Anyway, she opened some presents, played in some boxes, and tried out as many of her new toys as Mommy and Grandma could wrestle from the parent-proof packaging. Seriously, why are they trying to keep us out of there so badly?

Elissa also got her very first Patriots jersey thanks to 'Auntie' Kate, who gets huge points in my book.  Now we've got a miniature Tom Brady fan on our hands.  I'm just jealous that I don't have my own jersey to coordinate on game day!

And of course, Ellie's first rocking horse (from Uncle Derek) was a big hit.  My little princess just can't get enough of this toy... I'm not looking forward to the Christmas when she asks for a real pony...

 Ellie also got her very first purse (it's a learning toy, okay?) from Santa, an adorable Cabbage Patch doll from Aunt Sammi (her new travel companion on all car trips), her first Build-a-Bear, lots of loud music-making toys, and a gigantic teddy bear that will be bigger than her until she reaches the second grade, at least.  And that's only about 1/5 of the list!

Thanks to EVERYONE for making Elissa's first Christmas such a big success, and a day that we'll look back on for years to come.  I already can't wait for next year!
