Christmas in Dixie

My little family opened presents the night before we left for Taylor's parents' house. Initially, the plan was to take the presents to Jackson to open on Christmas morning but space is pretty limited in the Kia when it is packed for almost 2 weeks away from our house. So, we had "Baby's First Christmas" in Starkville with just the 3 of us. Henry's reaction to his presents was very unenthusiastic but Taylor and I had fun unwrapping all the presents.

Thank you everyone for all our gifts!!!!

Taylor modeling his new sweater. Notice the shorts -- it was 75 degrees that night.


Henry "holding" a silver cup from Taylor's babyhood. Carla had the cup engraved with Henry's name and birthday. Very sweet keepsake.


I gave this marble mortar and pestle to Taylor. Not quite sure why I felt like he needed a mortar and pestle, but I've been looking for one to give him for some time now.


Modeling my new puffy vest from Lizbeth. On my feet are cute slippers from my mother, but they didn't make the photo.


Taylor had to finish this book before we left town and Henry had to be held. So an easy compromise was met and I packed for our trip in peace.
***More pictures coming soon. I LOVE my new Nikon D40!!!
