Christmas with the Kinyons

Here are a few pictures from our Christmas morning. Unfortunately, there are only a few because I forgot to charge the camera battery. I'm so awesome. We stayed up putting Lo's kitchen together and just kept saying "I'm so excited for her to see this" - and she was. There's something about giving your kids something that you know they will absolutely LOVE!
This is Lo's pile - here's the kitchen and her other stuff that didn't even matter to her.

Here's Mya's pile. Mostly clothes - there's only so much you can do for a 4 month old :)

She played and played with her kitchen, and we basically had to open all of her other presents because this was all she really cared about. We would open something, and she would turn and say "ooooh, thank you" and then return to her cooking of hot dogs, chips, and fries. It was so cute! We had to tear her away from it after only about 30 minutes to go to my mom's and she was so sad. She kept saying "I just want to bring all my stuff, I just want to bring it". Broke my heart!!! So we've decided that from now on, we are going to only 2 places on Christmas - our parents' houses. By the time we went everywhere (4 places) it was time to go to bed. Christmas shouldn't be that hard on little kids who just want to play with their presents!
This is the new nickname that Bryan has bestowed upon me. Chiefy Pants. I'm so lucky.

If this offends anyone, or if anyone actually has this shirt and wears it I'm sorry, but this was my joke present from Bryan. The cheesiest Twilight shirt he could find. The back has an excerpt from the book. He likes to try and make me guess my presents every year and his clue this year was "it's something that you won't use like other people will". Basically he knows I would never wear this outside of the house, but I still love all things Twilight!!!

I'm like you--loved the books but I won't buy/wear the paraphernelia. Great gag gift Brian! Tell Grampy Geedo Pumpity-pants hi for me!
