Christmas...Denver City Style!

We had a WONDERFUL and EXCITING Christmas break... it will take a couple of posts to do it justice. We started our break heading out to Big Ol' DC (Denver City)...both Jay and I were excited because it had been almost a year since our last visit. We were also excited to introduce Camden to Jay's hometown.

We left as soon as the school bell rang on Wednesday...Camden was three days ahead of us with her Nonna and Pops. Needless to say, we had been counting down the minutes since the they pulled out of the driveway with our sweet baby.

We had fun hanging out with the Ocheskey crew! It was nice to hang around the house and relax. Friday, we opened presents...Camden was well taken care of! She got a lot of fun things. I have always LOVED Christmas, but it is even more exciting being a mom on Christmas day. On Saturday morning, we woke up to find that Santa had visited DC early...he sure is smart in knowing that we would not be there on Christmas day. Our stockings were stuffed full! Especially little Miss Camden's, who's stocking was twice her size. That night, the whole Ocheskey/McHam crew (about 36 people in all) had fun with the annual Chinese Christmas. It gets pretty ruthless and is always entertaining. It was wonderful to see everyone! I am blessed to be apart of this family and the special bond that they share!

The family stockings...can you tell which one is Camden's??
Camden inside her stocking!! I have to admit, she is the BEST stocking stuffer ever!

Man...this opening presents really wears you out!!

Jay opening Camden's presents as she rests from all her hard work.
Camden and Daddy reading her new book...she loves it! It plays music and lights up. I think she is going to be a reader just her Mommy!
Camden modeling her new specs! Isn't she stylin'?
Uncle Justin and Aunt Ashley got Camden this lights up and plays music. It can "grow" with her. She was mesmorized by the lights and music!
Why am I still in this thing??? Christmas always this exciting??

Looks like Camden stocked up on tons of her room overflowing yet....we need another room for Mason just to house his Christmas stuff. She is getting so big and beautiful. We miss you. Hope you had a great new year.
