Kyra's 1st Christmas!

We had such an amazing first Christmas with our little girl! I'm sad that it's already over, but we have so many wonderful memories to look back on, and I'm already looking forward to next Christmas! Kyra wasn't quite sure what to do when it came to opening presents (although she loved ripping up the wrapping paper!), but she seemed to take an interest in all of her new goodies. Hopefully she'll have a better grasp on it for her Birthday in February. She loves her new Christmas train, and has a fancy new rocking horse that she's beginning to investigate. And clothes, and books, and stuffed animals, oh my!

Here's just a bit of the fun we had on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We hope you all had a fantastic holiday, and we wish you a very happy New Year!

Stockings at home on Christmas Eve, before heading off to Grandma & Grandpa's house
Kyra loved the stocking and letter "K" ornament that I picked out for her when I was pregnant last Christmas
Kyra was very interested in her letter "K" ornament!
Kyra had lots of goodies in her stocking - books, toy cars, a pull toy, stuffed animals, and more!
Checking out the gifts in Daddy's stocking
Oh my goodness, I love our little girl!
Kyra's holding up our matching Mommy-Daughter headbands; a gift from Daddy!
I wonder if she'll like the Minions?
Kyra's Daddy surprised us with matching Mommy-Daughter fresh water pearl bracelets!
Kyra's bracelet is so tiny, and it wasn't easy to get on to her wrist, but she didn't seem to mind once it was on
Investigating Mommy's bracelet
What a sweetheart!
Christmas lights in Balboa
Kyra absolutely LOVED looking at all the lights!
She was fascinated by the little Santa Claus who was riding a bicycle back and forth along a wire above our heads
She couldn't take her eyes off of the bike riding Santa!
"Do you guys not see the bike riding Santa up there???!!!!!!"
"Helllloooooo, Santa's up there, and you guys don't seem to even notice!!!!!!"
A wonderful Christmas moment with my baby girl
A happy little family!

Holiday Photo Shoot

Here are a bunch of photos from our holiday photo shoot back in October. Kyra was 8 months old at the time, and she's already changed so much! We love all of the photos and we're definitely hoping to do an annual shoot each year!
