Christmas at our home.

This year marked the first year that we have stayed in Chanute to begin our own Christmas traditions.  It was weird not being home, but we want Tenley to wake up in her own bed Christmas morning.  Tim actually had to to work Christmas Day this year, so we did our Christmas on Christmas Eve and then her and I played and snuggled all day on Christmas Day.  We hope he can be home with us next year though.

She really got the hang of ripping the paper open and digging into all the gifts, which we weren't sure if she would get.  She would rip some open then just giggle and then continue.  What a joy! As for how she did with all the Christmas decorations, like I said before, wonderful!  She just loves looking at everything sparkling around her.  We will leave the trees up through Epiphany then it will be time for them to come down.  I always feel like the house is so bare after the Christmas season and everything is put away for another year. But soon enough it will be time to get the spring out and that is always a welcome change when it gets here!
