Christmas with Grandma/Grandpa Murphy and Family

I've got so much to catch up on with the blog! Kate was 18 months old (now she's 19 1/2 months old), so I've got about 2 months behind and can't believe I'm just now getting around to posting pics from Christmas! I guess better late than never : ) Here are a handful of pictures from Christmas celebrations we had in advance of the actual holiday with Kyle's family that lives here locally. We actually traveled to Mississippi (and elected to drive 12 hours with an 18 month old - ahhh!) to celebrate with my family over the actual holiday. Stay tuned from pictures from that visit.

Christmas with Grandma and Grandpa Murphy and Kate's Aunt Carrie, Uncle John, Aunt Alli and Uncle Brian was so much fun! Kate loves a Santa Claus soft figurine that Grandma has that winds up and sings. There's a cute pic of Grandma winding that Santa up for her and you can see the enjoyment on Kate's face. He's pretty delicate and I was certain that Kate would rip his head off trying to play with him but Santa survived!!! Ha ha! Kate got a teeter totter and a kitchen set from the grandparents and I can't believe I don't have a picture of the kitchen set. It's pretty amazing - an elaborate set-up complete with a dishwasher, stove, microwave, refrigerator and all the food, tableware and utensils you can imagine! Kate plays for hours with it and loves it so much. The teeter totter will come in handy very soon - Aunt Alli is expecting so Kate will have a cousin very soon. We can't wait for baby Macy to arrive! This Christmas Kate was more intrigued with the wrapping paper than the actual gifts but it was so much fun to celebrate and be with family. She's a blessing!
