Abby's 1st Christmas

We had such an awesome Christmas! Abby made it so special!
Abby went and saw Santa for the 1st time on Saturday, she looks a little out of it in this picture, but we did get a few good ones from the Elf that was taking pictures.
Abby was dedicated at church on Sunday morning, and she slept through the whole thing. I was so worried because she was fussy all morning and only fell asleep 5 minutes before the dedication. All 4 of Abby's grandparents were involved in the dedication, and a lot of her family were there, including her 2 Great Grandads and her Great Granny and Great Grandma. Here are some pictures:

We had both families over for Christmas Eve, and we ate so much! We even had a chocolate fountain, thanks to Steve and Sue. I don't think Mike and Steve left the fountain all night!

Christmas Day was wonderful too. We were up at 6:30 and opened our gifts at home, then it was off to Bob & Fran's for Gallimore Breakfast, a Christmas Tradition. Abby met John, Lynn, Courtney, and Burke for the first time, and she spent some time with her Great Grandad Gallimore.

Then it was over to Brian and Anne's for the afternoon and Christmas Dinner. Abby was spoiled, of course, and we were able to take some 4 generation pictures:

Then it was back to Bob and Fran's to open presents with them and Uncle Steve and Auntie Sue, Abby was spoiled again. Great Grandad was holding Abby and she wouldn't stop smiling at him, he thought that was pretty great:

Abby also met her Uncle Rob for the first time over the holidays, that was a nice treat!

It was also nice to have Kirst and the family here for Abby's dedication, it was great to see you guys again!

From our family to yours, we hope you had a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the new year!

Looks like a beautiful dedication. You looks great too Chrissy! What a busy Christmas Abby has had. I remember how insanely busy Isabelle's first Christmas was.
