HaPpY NeW YeAr!!

Christmas has come and gone, all too quickly! With the flu going around, all the traveling, hardly seems like we got a break at all. But it truly was wonderful, and I can't wait for it to come around again next year!

The Sunday before Christmas we went to the Rockettes at the sprint center, and man was it cold! It was a wonderful show, and I think Gracen enjoyed it the most out of all of us! Aunt Jaime came back to T-town with us to babysit G, and Gabe ended up getting sick with the flu and staying home Monday, unfortunately I got it Monday night! So we sent Aunt Jaime and Aunt Stephanie home to KC so they didn't get the sickies. Not a very fun way to spend our anniversary :( But luckily it lasted less then 24 hours!

Christmas eve we drove to KC and it was very difficult to keep Ms. G away from the presents! Luckily we opened most of them before she went to bed, and boy was she excited. Not just for the presents, but the wrapping paper and bows mostly! She got too many new toys, a chair just for her (that she adores) her first baby doll, and many others. The rocking horse (worm) that we got her, she's a little weary about, not quite ready to rock on it, but definitely likes the music and colors that light up on it!

Christmas day we drove to Iowa, and luckily the weather was on our side becuase the roads weren't bad at all. And Gracen decided to give us a Christmas present and sleep the whole way there! Had a lovely time seeing all the fam, but it all went by too fast as usual. Friday morning it was back to KC. We bought Gracen her first big girl car seat, and FINALLY put it in the car this week! She loves it, looking around at everything from her new view. Although she still has to sit backwards, we can't wait to turn her around.

New Year's Eve this year was low key, went over to Gabe's sister's house, which G always adores becuase she loves playing with her cousins. Haven't done anything else too exciting, just trying to get around to putting the finishing touches on Gracen's nursery!

On to some very exciting news.... Gracen took her first step! She's very sturdy on her feet, and every once in a while she'll take one or two. It is so funny to see how excited she gets, truly amazing to watch. She'll be running before no time, watch out world!
