We had a wonderful Christmas. Enjoy a few looks into our family’s memories from 2011.
Our advent calendar (made from toilet paper tubes) dictated daily fun for us.
It was a treat to eat s'mores (made in the microwave) and watch a Christmas show after dinner.We decorated the tree and Carter got the honor of putting up the tree topper this year.
My little loves.
We made our own gingerbread dough, cut out shapes and decorated them.
Playing with Christmas lights and camera settings. It was meant to be a Christmas card photo, but that never quite happened.
On "Snowman Day" we ate melted snowman soup in our scarves and hats.
It was warm enough to get outside and have fun with our family on Christmas Eve.
Um, yes, we did do the matching outfits thing.
There's nothing more special that experiencing Christmas through the eyes of my children.
Carter was old enough this year to understand the whole "Santa" thing and enjoy it. So we let him.
Carter woke up on Christmas morning not feeling so hot, which made him pretty cranky. I agree - no one should be sick on Christmas.
Evan was ok with letting others open his gifts for him. He was mostly interested in making sure he got a bottle.
