Christmas #3 with the Alexanders

Let me just say that we Christmas-ed it all week long! Literally from Saturday the 20th until Saturday the 27th, Avery opened a present or presents every day! It was insane! On the night of the 25th, we went to eat dinner at Grandma's and Avery got to open her big present and we all opened our stockings. No one else was there yet, so it was the calm before the storm! :) Grandma and Grandpa got her a chair from Pottery Barn Kids with her name on it to match her room. She loves it and can really use it for a long time--it's pretty big! The next day most of her aunts, uncles, and cousins were there minus just one of Craig's brothers and his family. There were tons of presents for everyone as usual--and Grandma said she wasn't going overboard this year! Didn't happen. :)
Besides her big chair, Avery got some clothes, lots of books, a DVD, a dump truck and tow truck (which she loves!), a princess purse, a painting-with-water board, a new doll, and a stuffed puppy dog that plays Jingle Bells. I know there are other things I am forgetting, but the point is it was great! Bailey got a few things as well. Grandma got her some cloth diapers I am planning to use, burp cloths, a little dee-dee, and a couple outfits. Craig and I also got lots of great things, but I will spare you the list! Thank you Grandma, Grandpa, and all of our great aunts and uncles who spoil us and our kids as well!
