Reagan's First Christmas

I can't believe Christmas has come and gone already! The whole month of December has just been a whirlwind. Grandma Barb was here visiting for most of the month, and it was so great to have her! Reagan has really started to bond with Grandma and we miss her so much already! We had such a good time having her come to all of our weekly activities with us and getting up to play with us at 5am every morning. Grandma also made us so many great meals and baked tons or Christmas cookies for all our neighbors and friends. She also helped me host a Christmas party for our playgroup that was so much fun! We made two attempts to get Reagan's picture taken with Santa, but both times she took one look at the big harry man that was holding her and screamed uncontrollably. I guess I can't blame her! Steve was traveling quite a bit this month but it has been great having him home and off work for the holiday. It would be an understatement to say that Santa was very good to Reagan. It seems like we were helping her open presents all day long. She got so many cute outfits and fun toys, but she seemed to be more interested in the wrapping paper and boxes. I guess we should enjoy this while it lasts! Uncle Tom came to visit for three days right before Christmas. Reagan just loves him! It is so cute to see them together. Tommy is going to make a great dad someday! Then, Aunt Jeanne, Uncle John, Michael, Beth, and Kinsey came to visit after Christmas and it was so much fun to watch Kinsey and Reagan play together. I hope they will only get closer and closer as they get older. Then Grandpa Cap came to visit for a few days, and Reagan had a great time playing with his as well. She is just eating up all of this attention!
