Emmedid bake, Santa, Willie.

Emmedid bake Santa's willie?! 
Say what?! Ha. 
I guess all this Christmas craziness is making me a little coocoo. 
I hope you laughed {or smiled} at least!

It's a Grz. girl family tradition to bake Christmas sugar cookies every year. This year was especially sweet because Emme as added into the mix!

We did pause in the middle of baking to play with this cutie. 
Little ruffle butt. 
And this was me last year during our annual bake session. Crazy!!

We took Emme to meet Santa a few weeks ago. 
  It was a Friday afternoon and there was absolutely no one in line. From the looks of it, Emme was pretty excited too!
We plopped her on Santa's lap, she checked him out for a minute and then they quickly became friends. No surprise! Look at that adorable smile!!

 Emme's Grammy graciously gave her an Elf on the Shelf this year so he could watch her starting with her very first Christmas! The first name Matt suggested was Willie, and every other name that was presented after was quickly shot down. So, Willie he is! Emme first met Willie when he was seated on the advent calendar I had as a kid. 
He has done a few cute things...
And a few funny things...
 But, not too much effort is going into his happenings this year because clearly she doesn't understand the concept. She sure does like having him around though! And breaks the no touching rule regularly!

A Christmas party blog post is coming soon! 
We just have a few more to attend this weekend!
Ho, ho, ho!

Katiedid + Emmedid the 2012 Christmas tree.

The day after Thanksgiving we took little Emme to pick out her very first Christmas tree! 
Growing up we always went to pick out our tree as a family and continuing this tradition with our daughter is a must! 
Hello, Christmas tree. 
Glamma and Papa came to help too! 
Family photo with our tree!

Pointing at the trees. 
 First encounter with a fake Santa. 
This is my 4th year to do a "peace tree" and it's by far my favorite version yet. I {with the help of Glamma} added the burlap bows and love the end result! Previous peace trees can be seen here.
I also decorated my branches in the kitchen. 
 And a particular little lady {not naming names!} can't keep her tiny hands off the tree!
