We had a cold, but not white, Utah christmas with Grandpa and Grandma Munk. I was excited when I found out that Christmas was on Sunday- perfect opportunity to make a special dress. She got this:
The dress is sleeveless so I made this little ruffle jacket to keep her warm. Grandma Munk let her wear her pearls. All she needed was some little white gloves! (I don't know how to make those or you can bet she would have had some.)
In keeping with the tradition I started last year, I made us matching Christmas jammies. Laura's were especially cute with pink polka dot trim and matching bunny slippers.
Laura got a playhouse for Christmas. "Santa" spent hours and hours and hours working on this thing. But I think it was worth it because she seems to love it. She has even been sleeping in it at night.
We got to spend time with Peter's sister, Katie, and her family. Laura loved playing with her cousins. She wasn't as interested in her cousin Vea and her princess dress-up and other girly toys. But she loved wrestling and playing super hero with her older cousin Alex.
