Christmas morning brought new excitement. Paige knew that Santa had come to leave her presents, but got scared half way down the stairs. I think she thought that he was still in the house and wasn't too sure that she wanted to walk in on a stranger. Of course, once she discovered that there was no one there, she was overjoyed with everything she saw.
Santa was way too generous, he must have thought that she had been extra good this year.
Yes, that is a blue lolly pop that Paige managed to sneak out of her stocking before we had even had breakfast. Oh well, that's what Christmas is for. The only problem is that she had a blue mouth for the remainder of the morning.
After opening presents for the better half of the day. We had some other good friends of ours from college over for Christmas dinner. It was lots of fun and the food was delicious (I wish I could take all the credit, but Meredith and her mom helped out a lot!!!). Of course with all the excitement, I forgot to take pictures once they got here, but at least I got one of the table.
Since Christmas, Paige has had lots of fun playing with all her new toys. She definitely can't complain that she's bored or has nothing to do. Here she is painting with her new paints, and yes Popi, she did get a hair cut. Doesn't it look nice :)
Now that she is getting older, Paige got lots of games for Christmas. Matt and I both thought that this was a great educational activity that would be good for her, of course we forgot that we were the ones that would have to be playing the games with her all the time. It's only been two days since Christmas and I can't even tell you how many times we have played Candyland and Memory. This has to be my favorite though, here's Matt trying to figure out how to play her new Fancy Nancy game!!!
