Mom: Our daughter's First Real Christmas

Technically this is her 2nd Christmas; however, since she was only 4 months
old on her first Chritmas we call this her First Real Christmas.
This picture is engraved in my mind forever. As you can see by this picture,
she was very surprised. Truly Christmas through the eyse of a child.
The next picture is what she was looking at that had her so excited
Note we had the Christmas Tree in her playpen to keep the inquisitive
hands of a 16 month old safe.
Thanks Madi for sharing the blog with your sister. After all, she is
the reason we adopted our first cat....hence the reason you are here.


  1. Hi Madi, thanks for letting your sister share those treasured memories.
    We just loved that top picture - the sheer wonder of xmas - how special.

  6. AWWWW, so very cute. I love the tree in the playpen...what parents do to keep us safe!

  7. What a cute photo when the little one saw the tree, each year as they grow up Christmas becomes more and more fun. This is the third Christmas for our grandone but really the second that she is so much fun with! Good idea for putting the tree in the playpen.

  8. That is so cute! I have always loved the looks of amazement on Children's faces on Christmas!

  9. That first picture is priceless!! Thanks for sharing those with us!!!

  10. Oh my goodness. A Christmas tree in the playpen! You must have raised it from just a sapling :)

    Love the pictures! I hope she has as much joy this year!

  11. Yes, that first picture is priceless!
    Thanks for sharing it!
    Kisses and hugs

  12. Oh, that is so sweet. You captured the most wonderful of moments for a child.

  13. Nothing is more magical than Christmas with a little one!
    Thank you for sharing the darling pic of Marlu and the funny picture of the tree in the playpen!
    I was tempted, but I am sure the boys would have found a way to climb back in!! LOL

  14. Hi again!
    I love to drive in the snow! It must be part of me being a New Englander! I even went to Church in the snow storm, not even thinking it was canceled!!! I do drive for work, but not too much. I just maintain my accounts so I'm not out on the streets trying to drum up new business. Not right now, anyways!!! I hope your all set for Christmas, I'm not! I'm going out again today :)

  15. Aaaahhhhhhhhh...what a beautiful photo...captures the excitement and wonder perfectly!!

    Dory...and once again mostly the Mama

  16. OMG!!! It gives such joy to see Christmas through the eyes of a child. Ever since having Wren, I feel like a kid again at Christmas. What a great post!


Please leave a meow or bark for Angel Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
