This Christmas was "Delightful" with Maya. She was so much fun!
Christmas Eve we went to the Wonderland performance at New Life and although I was fearful that without any childcare provided Maya would be a crazy monkey, she did a great job! She spent most of the time dancing, raising one hand in the air to praise Jesus and eating her first candy cane :O)
We also opened our stockings on Christmas Eve and Maya was sooooooo excited to open her gifts! Her favorite was her tiny baby, but even better was the big girl underwear she put on her head. After Maya's bedtime Brett spend about 2 hours putting together Maya's kitchen and I started the home-made cinnamon rolls.

Christmas morning Maya came downstairs and when straight to her kitchen and started playing, stacking everything possible into the oven. Grandpa and his sister, Jessie came over to enjoy the cinnamon rolls and other delightful breakfast treats before Maya opened the rest of her presents.

Then the present unwrapping began and Maya went crazy! She wanted to open every present even if it wasn't for her! Her excitement was contagious and all of her "ooooooo's" and "eeeeeeeeee" made it the best Christmas ever! Her last gift from was from Grandpa and waiting the garage, it as a Coozy Coupe (one of those cars you pedal with your feet) and Maya loved it! She can only pedal backwards, but she loaded up the trunk, got her cell phone and was on her way!

Maya even got presents from Grandpa Derstine (Brett' s real father), this puppy was probably her favorite thing!

Oh and I got Brett and Kitty for Christmas, something he has wanted ever since we have been married. I had to give it to him early, but he was so very excited! (say "hi" to mew mew)

I got the vegan warp boots I wanted from Toms , they are fun the wrap up and Velcro at the top

We went out to the Cheyenne Mountain resort to eat our Christmas meal thanks to Grandpa! It was actually very nice, we got to enjoy mimosas, seafood, beef, turkey, veggies and lots of other tasty food. Filled to the brink we headed back to Grandpa's house,but we had to take a few photos of Maya in her Christmas dress

Of course the best part of Christmas, remembering baby Jesus and wondering how fun and delightful he was at this age? I mean God came to earth as a human! He was a little toddler just like Maya, it is unbelievable to think of, just puts me in more awe of Him.
