‘Double Firsting’

This post is overdue: First Christmas 2012

The festivities began… waiting for Santa:

The classic first photo with Santa. Everybody has one right? 

Every Christmas Eve we drive out to the farm to spend time with my Hubby’s dad’s side of the family.  We typically attend the family pizza party with karaoke carol singing, but we missed out this year.  Here are photos from our time at the farm:


McKinley received “Puffs” for Christmas from Grandpa & Grandma.

After our visit out at the farm, we snuggled McKinley down for bed time.  Five hours later McKinley had a “double first”.  At 12 am on Christmas morning,  poor McKinley started screaming with a burning fever.

I felt helpless holding her as she screamed through the hallucinations.  Hubby and I camped out on her floor.

Thankfully she was still able to attend the Christmas  “Big Breakfast,” one of our favorite meals of the year filled with yummy breakfast foods!  Although McKinley still had her fever we insisted on traveling to the Cabin “Lake Hope.”  Another tradition.
