Madelyn's First Christmas

Maddy's first Christmas was a busy one, but so much fun. We visited my family in Bloomington on Christmas Eve and celebrated the Williams Christmas at the B&B with 25of my aunts, uncles and cousins.
We had Christmas at our house on Christmas morning, my family made the trip from Bloomington and my dad made his famous breakfast. This is a tradition I'm not willing to part with, for some reason it's just better then any other breakfast I have the rest of the year.
Christmas afternoon we headed to Anderson to celebrate with Adam's family, we had a great dinner and opened lots of presents. Maddy enjoyed the bows and tissue paper the most!

Adam and I really enjoyed this Christmas with Madelyn, having a child of your own really puts a new perspective on the Holidays and what they're all about. I put a few pictures together in a slide show below.

Well Christmas has come and gone and it felt like a complete whirlwind. We were finally able to get both cars unloaded with all the gifts we received and I'm hoping to get them put away in the next few days, though I am not sure where we will put all of it.

We hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

Christmas Pictures

If you copy and paste the attached link you can see some Christmas Pics we had taken of Madelyn. She of course got a rug burn on her nose two days before pictures, crawling and pulling up has taken a toll on her head. You will notice that the last few pictures we had her nose retouched as if she never even had the boo boo.

Breakfast with Santa!

Madelyn and I wanted to give a big “thank you” to Grammy McCord for taking us to have breakfast with Santa this past Saturday. Nordstrom department store does a great thing for kids every year and this year Maddy and I were able to attend with Lucinda, Margaux and Adrienne.

Madelyn and Adrienne had a great time, Santa came around and talked to every table and found out what each kiddo wanted for Christmas, then his elves helped paint faces and make balloon characters. After breakfast we went downstairs to the kids department and there was more face painting, story time and of course the opportunity to sit on Santa’s lap.
Maddy was quite intrigued with Santa during breakfast but when it was time to sit on his lap she wasn't too sure. She did give his beard a yank though, it was real!! Madelyn enjoyed playing with a few other kids during story time but I am pretty sure her favorite part was talking to her mirror image in the shoe department mirrors. They just happen to be the perfect level.

Enjoy the pics, we will have more pictures with Santa taken later this week!!

We have a crawler, I will hopefully post some pictures and video soon. Madelyn has been trying so hard the past week and finally on Wednesday night it seemed to "click". Last night she was all over our bedroom floor as I put laundry away.

Adam and I are both so excited...but I know our lives just became a whole lot crazier!
