Every year we enjoy a "Christmas" night with our dear friends Matt & Sandy. This year was pretty low-key as we're still adjusting to having a newborn in the house, and we just ordered pizza and had some yummy cupcakes Sandy made. Georgia was anticipating their coming over all day, saying "Say-ee" (Sandy) and Matt (one of the first names she ever said clearly). She loved the part of the evening with presents and did a great job, tearing off the paper with gusto and ooo-ing and ahhing. 'Aunt' Sandy & 'Uncle' Matt always do a great job of spoiling her! :) I can't wait till their own little boy comes in Feb b/c they're going to be great parents! (AND we'll get to repay them with lots of fun toys that make noise! ;)
Uncle Matt has his arms full of little hippos!
Georgia's very own phone!
What kid doesn't want a direct line to Elmo?!
Yea!! A cute pink outfit that's "so soff"!
...that she immediately tried on, over her clothes!
Thanks, Phelps, for another fun Christmas and a great year together. I love that we continue to share each other's joys, surprises and challenges. Thank you for your friendship, most of all. We're looking forward to an exciting 2009!
