CHRISTMAS RECAP

I know that Christmas is well past but I thought I would share some pictures from our Christmas. It is always special to celebrate a new child's first Christmas and Lauren is at such a fun age that we knew she would be able to open her own presents this year without them all having to be in gift bags. Our predictions were right, Lauren was excited to rip the paper off of her gifts and hold her new treasures high. (Elyse's strategy was to try to eat the presents open. An interesting approach for sure.)


We had a full week of Christmas events from celebrating with Matt's family to the Special Kids Christmas Party to cookie making with my mom, my family on Christmas Eve and more of both of our families on Christmas Day. It was packed. 








Christmas is always nice because of the time that we get to spend with family and, strangely enough, I never seem to get sick of it. Quite the opposite. It seems to make me crave more. I figure that is a pretty good sign!

That seems to be how the two girls feel about each other. This morning, they spent the whole morning playing together in different areas of the house while I made what might possibly be a month's worth of baby food (though I only started out to make a few small containers). Lauren has started to play more independently and she often includes Elyse in her play. It is my hope that the girls continue to love their time together and love the time that they spend with both their immediate and extended family. 




And of course there was a mandatory first Christmas photo for Elyse.


We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and has a blessed 2015.
