Christmas with little ones has to be the best thing ever. I really, really want my kiddos to understand the meaning of the Season so we will always make Jesus the center of our discussions about Christmas. Isabella was so excited to celebrate Jesus birthday this year. I told her Santa was bringing her presents to celebrate and she thought that was quite exciting. We celebrated Christmas Eve in Ft Worth with the McDonald/Martin clan and the kiddos had a blast. We did Christmas morning as a family before rushing off to my parents house to celebrate. Then we snuck in some quick naps before heading to my aunt and uncles for our big Dowling Christmas!

I showed her this picture of Santa in our living room before going down stairs and her smile was priceless!
She was SO excited about everything! When I was wrapping her presents she was adamant that the Bacon toothpaste you can see in her box, that arrived too late for our annual friend party, be in her present:)
