Christmas in Riverside 2009

We continued the holiday festivities with the Dunlaps when we returned to California. Delaney was blessed by handmade gifts from her Nana, Papa, and Uncle Monkey.

First things first--posing underneath the tree.

Delaney's Uncle Mike (AKA Uncle Monkey) painted this picture for his favorite niece. Let's hope Delaney inherits some artistic ability from her uncle...

This red Radio Flyer wheelbarrow was Steve's when he was a kid. Steve's parents found it in the attic and brought it back to life with some major TLC and a nice powdercoat finish. I never knew a wheelbarrow could be a thing of beauty, but trust me, it is.

Lastly, Steve's parents made Delaney this tinker-toy chair. It's pretty spectacular and I think the girl likes it. She'll be big enough to sit in it all by herself all too soon *sniff*.

Thank you to all of our friends and family for making us feel so loved, and for making Delaney's first Christmas very special.

I'm glad you clarified who Uncle Monkey was. I was a little nervous about who that was referring too :)
