Molly's first xmas

Molly is currently sleeping soundly in her swing chair. She had a big day. All of her grandparents were here and very excited to take part in her very first xmas. I had the bright idea of getting mold imprints of her hands and feet for everyone. I went to Michael's (arts & crafts store) and picked up 4 kits. The kits consisted of a plastic tray, a cement like mix, and some tiles for decorating. My idea was to press Molly's hands and feet into each mold. Heh.

When it came time to putting her hands in it (she was sleeping soundly at the time as I thought this was our best bet to avoid get fist imprints) she woke up and was *not* happy. We got one hand imprint in the first mold. The rest of the molds were of her feet. Nathan was able to get a better imprint than me, but Molly was still not very happy about this whole process. We have it all on film for your viewing pleasure. Once we were done she had some boob time and slept soundly in her crib through dinner. Actually, that part worked out really well. My dad is looking forward to telling Molly all about the torture we put her through on her first xmas.

We stopped exchanging xmas gifts among the adults, but Molly scored some cool loot. My favorite was her Mommy's Little Monster beanie from Uncle Kyle. That will definitely come in handy when we head up to Tahoe. We also got all of the grandparents a digital photo frame and loaded them up with pics of Molly. I don't think my mom is going to get anything done as all her time will be spent staring at this frame when she's not over here staring at Molly.

We plan on heading up to Tahoe tomorrow and staying for a week. Still not quite sure how we're going to fit 4 dogs (we're dogsitting), 2 cats, 2 adults, and 1 Molly into the Yukon plus all of the crap needed for 4 dogs, 2 cats, 2 adults, and 1 Molly. This should test N's mad packing skills.

Video and pics are all up to N and he's currently napping on the couch. Hopefully he'll get something up before we leave.

Hope everyone had a very merry xmas and here's to a happy new year!
