Christmas Eve 2011

This was our first Christmas season that we spent as just our new family of 3- and Jane's first Christmas Eve.

Everyone has been so generous to us, giving us such adorable items like the headband and bow and the my first Christmas onesie. I love this picture because it looks like she is smiling, though it hasn't happened yet.
Nana Stults also gave her this my first Christmas bib. Jane was not thrilled with the photo shoot- she is barely tolerating it as her expression shows
We went to dinner at P.F. Chang's and had a little elf tag along with us (Side story: being at the restaurant, people would walk by and peek at Jane and then have a surprised look on their face when they saw the Santa hat (thanks Auntie Bekky!!)
We then went to Christmas in the Park in San Jose- this was my first year going to the event. They have little holiday scenes interspersed between hundreds of trees decorated by local schools, clubs, and businesses. My sister's dance team that she teaches did a tree but we sadly weren't able to find it. I did like this Yakult tree with a star made of out of- you guessed it- Yakult bottles.
The giant Christmas tree in the center of the event
Some of the characters in the scenes kind of scared/creeped me out and so I only have photos of the cute ones

Not too much longer until Santa's arrival

This helped to make Christmas Eve special since we were missing our sweet extended families.
