Christmas Day

Our second Christmas as a married couple and first as parents was a wonderful one. Here is a little peek at our Christmas morning:

David got a bike this year for Christmas!
(If you remember, he gave me mine last year)
So now all we need is a baby seat and we will be all set.

The view outside was so pretty that morning. Every surface was coated with white frost. It's hard to see it well here, but it gives the idea anyway.

Mariah didn't have a clue about how to proceed with gift opening. She did watch with great interest though. I guess her little brain is processing and preparing for an all out attack next year!

This is what our living room looked like after we were finished!
My family sent us loads of presents and spoiled us rotten!
Thank you all...we love our gifts and so does Mariah!
(I will post a video shortly of her enjoying her present from my parents!)

Looks like a very fun Christmas! Thanks for the update:) I love the picture you added to the top of your blog. Is it David in the picture? The verses you have added to your blog are such an inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Annette! Yes, that is David in the picture. He is standing on top of Muckish, a mountain in Donegal that we climbed together. The view from the top was so beautiful!
