Christmas 2013

Christmas 2013 was certainly all about Miss Reagan (shocking, I know)! 
We started the season off with our annual family picture with Santa. It's always a big event but I'm sure you can imagine how much more work it was when you throw a baby into the mix. We didn't forget about Jack, he just got left in the car... We could barely manage 2 giant dogs and a baby. I don't think Jack minded though. 
 I love Reagan's face in this one and that Norris had to be the center of attention!

Reagan and I attempted some pictures by the tree.
Supervised by Baby the mastiff of course.

 On Christmas Eve we were able to video chat with Sister West (Ryan's sister) in Uruguay! It wasn't easy since a big ice storm came through a few days before and knocked out our internet so we first tried to go the church to Skype but were locked out so resorted to using the hospital lobby :) Kind of weird but it worked and it was great to see Vanessa and introduce her to Reagan!

 The many beautiful faces of Reagan in one of her bazillion Christmas outfits!

 Christmas morning came and Reagan found herself among a couch full of gifts with her name on them! And only one was from her mom and dad! Her extended family sure spoiled her!
 I love how she just adores her daddy :)

My mom made Reagan's darling stocking which matches mine from when I was born and the one she made for Ryan when we got married.

 Ready to open presents!
She is staring at the cute Little People Nativity Set her grandparents sent. 
I can't wait to see her with it next year!

This one is from mom and dad.

 We thought this would be a fun way to document her growth each Christmas.

Couldn't forget the other babies!

We spent the rest of our day relaxing and making a big Christmas dinner which I'm glad we did. It was nice to sit down and enjoy a nice meal together on this special Christmas. We are so grateful to our Heavenly Father for Reagan and that she arrived safe and is growing and happy. There is nothing more we could have asked for this year!
