Dearest Christmas, Please Come Back!!

So, I'm sordof in denial that Christmas is over. I refused to let Ryan take down our Christmas tree last night, and instead we left the lights on and slept by it all night. Christmas just went by too fast, and I'm having a hard time letting it go.

Ryan's family just left yesterday (we had a blast having them all here for Christmas) and Chanley and I have no idea what to do with ourselves now that they have left. We have just bummed around in our pj's all day...trying to entertain ourselves (and failing) and trying to get used to the quiet again. Chanley keeps trying to go outside because she thinks all her friends are out there playing without her. She LOVED having everyone here. She absolutely refused to take any naps the whole week, because she didn't want to miss out on any of the fun. Poor girl was running on no steam whatsoever by the end, but did suprisingly well! She would wake up every morning at the crack of dawn, sit straight up and listen for Carter and Syd. When she heard them she would get so excited! We all had a fantastic time. We don't get to see family very often, so this was such a treat for us.

Hense, the roaming around aimlessly in our pajamas all day.{*sigh*} Hopefully we'll reach a full recovery soon. :)
Thanks for coming Dianna, Mark, Tay-Tay, Brand, Jesse, Syd, and Carter. We miss you!! Please come back! :)

I did an awful job taking pics of our fun week, but I'll try to scrounge some up from Brandi and post them. But for now, here's some pics of our house. I had a fun time decorating this year. Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!!

Our Sweet Lil' Girl

Chanley is SUCH a sweet, cuddly girl and I love it! She is so good at giving hugs and kisses, and loves just to cuddle up on my lap. It's heaven. :)

Cute experience. The other day we were eating at A and W. Chanley wanted to get down from the table and walk around, so we let her. Next thing I know she was walking towards an older lady in a nearby booth. This was a little uncharacteristic of her, since she's pretty shy around new faces. Anyway she went right up to her and just put her little hand on this lady's leg. Then she put her head on her leg and gave her a hug. (Well, her leg a hug, since that's all she could reach.) The lady just melted. :) She looked at me like, "I think she's hugging me!" She told us that Chanley just made her night.

I just love my girl.
