6 christmases

we had a wonderful Christmas this year or should i say we had 6 wonderful Christmases!!!! we started out at Eric's grandparents (the Wyricks) house the afternoon of Christmas Eve. we spent a couple of hours there just having enough time to eat a snack and open gifts. next was Candlelight service at First Baptist with my Dad's side of the family. after church we headed to my aunt and uncle (Kathy & Derek's) to eat dinner and open gifts again. last stop for the night was Booah and Papaws. we left there about 10:30 and Atlee was a pooped pup by the time she got to bed. Christmas morning we went to aunt Kim and uncle Jabin's house and opened gifts with them and my mom. shortly after we stopped by Eric's moms for a yummy lunch and more gifts. last stop on our journey was Eric's dad and stepmoms. whew....we survived a fast and furious one....all in 2 days!!!! as you can imagine, with ALL our loving family, we had a blessed holiday!!!! hope everyone enjoyed Jesus birthday as much as we did!!!

one of Atlee's favorite toys is her activity table....thanks Nana and Papa Bubba!
Atlee and cousin Daley in their Christmas you can tell these girls didn't want any part of taking pictures at this point. they were pooped from all the gift opening!

her 1st rocking horse.....thanks booah and papaw!!!

this year mommy read Atlee The Christmas Story. this is a Knecht Christmas tradition that we have done ever since i was a little girl....each year one of the grandkids would read the book to the rest of the family.

Atlee was intrigued by the fake snow that was falling after Candlelight Service.

rudolph the red nosed reindeer

atlee's daycare had their christmas play thursday night and she and the rest of her classmates were reindeer. it was so cute!!!!! picture this.....about 20 infants and toddlers all on stage singing at the same about chaos. there were a select few that attempted to sing while the rest of them screamed, picked their noses, and ran around the stage.....too funny!!! i do have to report that that my little one was such a precious angel....or should i say she was like a "deer in the headlights". overall, it was a great night and we managed to get a few pics with Santa (she wasn't quite sure of him either...go figure).
