Bramell Christmas 2009

This picture was taken the day we went to see Santa at the mall. We got Becca all dressed up and she was ready to see him, only to chicken out when it was her turn in line. She got about a foot from him and never said a word. Go figure. Then, the next week at daycare, they sent home a nice little photo of her sitting in Santa's lap! We were definitely surprised. No tears!

She does like to ride on the little cars in the mall, though. We try to do it when she's with us.

Here is some of her loot from Christmas morning. She really seemed to "get" the whole Santa thing this year, which was pretty fun. These dolls with snap on clothes were a big hit.

You can see out the back door that we were up before the sun on Christmas Day! How can she even know to be that excited yet?? Unfortunately, we didn't take very many pics. Our camera was on its last leg, as you can probably tell from the picture quality here. But, lucky for us, Grammy got us a brand new wonderful camera that we are excited to try out.

The Dora house slippers were her favorite gift from Santa, by far. She immediately put them on and wore them the whole day, all the way to Wynne.

I did take a couple of videos that I'll try to post soon. We are potty training this week, so I just don't have much time. Happy New Year everyone! Here's hoping for a much better 2010....

Well, I have a really good reason.....

I do have a really good reason for not blogging in a long, long time. Really. I just haven't felt very good. That's what happens when you're pregnant!!

Yes, I AM. I am 10 weeks along now and feeling a little bit better. Becca is growing like a weed and getting sassy and throwing lots of fits, too. She is just keeping us on our toes and it's hard to find the time and/or energy to blog.

I am happy to report that she is finally getting to where she'll smile for a photo. I took these the other night by our new, wonderful Christmas tree. I love it! No more Charlie Brown tree for the Bramells!

We went to see Santa yesterday at the mall. No luck. After waiting in line 45 minutes, she wouldn't sit on his lap or even touch him. She didn't cry, so we have made progress. : D

More's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....
