A Very Merry Maizie-Filled Christmas

My parents were begging for pictures, so here is a photo-journal of our Christmas weekend. It was our first Christmas to be away from family, but we were able to be with the Georges for Thanksgiving and we are going on a cruise (!) next week with my family. Besides missing family, it was a nice long weekend just to relax and do a whole lot of nothing.

We started it off by planting a tree Saturday. Our duplex neighbor got a free one through the city of Austin, so we helped her plant it and dubbed it our own Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.

On Sunday, Maizie wore this dress I made for her. I still can't believe I made a dress all by myself! It's a bit big, but I couldn't wait another minute to see her in it.

We went out for a Christmas Eve dinner with friends and we put Maizie in her Santa hat. I'm glad she puts up with the things we make her do. We had a great time hanging out with all the other at-home holidayers.

Maizie got to open one gift on Christmas Eve. I think you can tell that she loved her present from PawPaw and Grandmama George.

Santa brought Maizie a cup of reindeer milk and some special Christmas cookies. They were a big hit.

The Christmas dance. Pardon my singing.

Maizie's new "Airplane" from Nana and Papa. She loves it--no shirt and all.

I decided to make Christmas dinner at the last minute. It was pretty much a feast for 8 consumed by 2. Roasted chicken, stuffing, mashed cauliflower and Italian green beans. Yum, yum! And I have no idea what face Jason is making. He kind of looks like Ebeneezer Scrooge. I guess he wanted all the food to himself.

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas, too!
