Mia pushing Baby Hectorina in her new stroller.
Saturday night we spent eating our prime rib Christmas dinner and opening presents! It didn't take Mia long to remember how to open the presents. She was THRILLED to get a new stroller and baby! Per our tradition as well, we headed to the casino after presents...with the exception of Mia's mommy who was WAY too tired to go. Thankfully, Daddy won a little bit of money.

Oh, Wow...a new baby!!
We were SO sad to leave the next day, but as you can tell from the pic...Mia was EXHAUSTED!!

Christmas #3We were all so excited to have Uncle Roger/Auntie Mika/Cousins Ellie, Nisa, and Maile with us for Christmas! They arrive on the Wednesday before Christmas and their first stop on their way into town was at John's Incredible Pizza! Although it was a late night for everyone, we were so excited to be able to take all the girls since it is without a doubt their favorite destination! After playing all the games, choosing prizes and eating dessert Ellie and Nisa came back to our house for a sleepover!

On Christmas Eve, our house was packed! In addition to Ellie and Nisa spending the night, we also had Doc/Gram and Uncle Roger/Auntie Mika/Cousin Maile. After this sleepover, we became more convinced than ever that we NEED a bigger home!
When we awoke Christmas morning, the kids were THRILLED to see that Santa had come!!! Santa brought Mia a new kitchen! She was so excited to be able to cook in her kitchen with all her new food and the pots and pans that Mommy and Daddy bought her. She also loved her new American Girl Doll Bitty Baby that Uncle Mark and Cousin Monte Dog brought her, the baby gear from Doc and Gram, and the horse stable and horses from her Uncle Roger and family!

After opening presents, we headed to the Great Grandparents house! GG Fay and Boppa Wayne hosted Christmas Dinner for the Thomas family. It was a nice end to a long day to spend time with our extended family. It was funny to see, but the highlight of the entire day were the balloons on rubber bands that came from Auntie Annie/Uncle Doug/Cousins Jeff and Holly! They were so simple, but definitely the hit of the day!!!
