Julianna's First Christmas!

So we made it through Julianna's first Christmas... and what a fabulous Christmas it was! Julianna had the best time ripping open her gifts & playing with the tissue paper even though she had no idea why we were doing it! Grandma & Grandpa came to visit from upstate NY bearing many gifts... and Nana came from her house with plenty for Julianna as well. So between all of theirs, combined with the gifts from us (Santa) and other friends & family - we could barely walk into our living room! We had fun listening to Christmas carols and opening gifts on Christmas morning. Santa got me so many wonderful gifts (OK yes, I know Christmas is not about material things- but hey, a girl can be giddy about her new Coach, Nikon 14 MP point & shoot camera and other fabulous items, right?! Santa is the best!) What a fun day we had! Julianna got to play with most of her new toys and loved them all. I hope everyone else's Christmas was just as wonderful as ours was.

Here is Julianna opening her gifts that Santa got her.
Note the wall of presents behind her.

Mommy & Daddy with Julianna

Julianna playing with some of her toys. She loved these 2 stuffed animals the best -
they make her squeal with delight - sooo funny!

Julianna likes to stand up - about 10 seconds at a time now!
We are making progress! See the cute tu-tu leggings my aunt got her...

Gotta love the gift of wine...   

And what girl doesn't like this gift?? 


  1. Lovely, LOVELY pictures! I love that you did the 'mosaic' thingy. I'm going to have to learn to do that, for sure! I posted a pix of Julianna and her mommy over at my blog and sent people over to your's to see more. :)

    What a great Christmas this was!!
    The best ever! (Gee, I wonder why?)
    Could it be that a little princess had something to do with it?


  2. Beautiful pictures! So many wonderful memories to treaure! Thankyou for sharing - I liked esp. the family pic of Mum, Dad and little Miss Julianna! :-)

  3. Sounds like a bang up Christmas for everyone at your house!

  4. She is seriously one adorable baby! I think the twins got the same taggie lion/doggie...You're so lucky you got all that wine. I could go for a big glass right now. XOXO

  5. Love the photos, looks like you guys had a blast! Julianna must've been really tired opening those pressies. And hey hey hey... I am excited that she got the tutu crawler, exactly like Nadine's. It's awesome! take photos okay? Julianna will be super cute in it! :)

    Sue - Thanks! It was my pleasure! We had the best time! :)

    Klove - LOL about the wine! We still have to break that open - maybe for New Years eve once the little bambina is fast asleep! :)
    p.s. the little doggie/elephant thing is awesome - she just loves all the little taggie things! No wonder yours love it too!! :)

    Kitten - She was soo exhausted she basically passed out sitting up in daddy's lap while opening presents - it was so funny! She took a nice mid-morning nap after that! ANd yes... the tu-tu ... I can't wait to put it on her and take pictures- it is so adorable even if she doesn't crawl yet! :)

    No. 7 - Yes she sure did - she had a great visit from Santa... and this was just her first year. Look out Christmas 2011!! ha!
