Here we are just a few days away from Christmas. The excitement has been building. Oliver had Jesus' birthday party with his friends at school on Friday and Abriella had her "winter party" on Thursday. The kids are ready for Christmas, the parents not so much. Still a few things left to buy and then lots to wrap. I finally was able to edit the pictures from when we picked out our Christmas tree (the day after Thanksgiving!!) but haven't gotten around to even looking at the rest of the pictures from all the other fun things that we've managed to squeeze into this "most wonderful time of the year." Maybe this new year will bring some time to get all these memories organized (haha).
Anyways. I hope everyone has been having a wonderful Christmas season. I know tons of people have been getting all kinds of germs and we've been praying for health for the holidays. We started our break with three with colds and one pukey baby. Everyone is on the mend today and we hope it stays that way.
Merry Christmas and Happy Healthy New Year!
They always find the tallest tree first and declare that to be the one. Funny thing is this one is only about a foot taller than the one we decided on this year.
This baby (I guess she's a toddler now :( ) is too busy to capture.
They were making nests for animals.
We found a teeny little birds nest falling out of our tree.
Aliza was so excited to see these puppy dogs, until they came running up to her to give her kisses.
Took about 100 shots to get this one.
Most of them looked like this, and worse.
Oliver was so proud he was able to help cut off some of the bottom branches.
Our tall skinny tree.
Always lagging behind (or getting lost).
They humored me and let me take a few pictures of them.
Oh the toothless grin.
This boy is so silly.
Don't even know what to say about this girl.
Not chaotic at all.
Her big girl teeth are all coming in and I am so sad about it :(
I think they were done being good sports.
Free popcorn, hot chocolate and a free ornament to end the fun.
