Christmas 2013

Hard to believe that the holidays are already almost over.  They seem to have come and gone in the blink of an eye and it's almost the new year.  We had a low-key Christmas filled with family, food and fun, and I'm now trying to get back into the swing of regular daily life after having a week at home with my boys.

Elliot turned 4 months on Christmas Eve:

Andrew had a blast opening his Christmas presents (and Elliot's) on Christmas - unfortunately most of those pictures are on my camera and I haven't downloaded them yet.

I made some ornaments with Elliot's handprints:

Obviously the top right one is Andrew's hand.

Elliot had a long day and passed out on daddy:

Andrew and I had some fun in the back yard while Elliot napped:

Andrew showed Elliot how to play with his new toy:

And I made some sugar cookies with some assistance from my favorite little helper:

It was a great couple days and I'm kind of sad that it's over.  One thing I learned is I need to be better prepared for next year.  I forgot to get the boys Christmas jammies for Christmas Eve like I planned on, we didn't do the Elf on the Shelf thing, and my shopping was all pretty last minute.  Now that Andrew is really getting into Christmas and was really excited about it we'll have even more fun next year. I love seeing Christmas through the eyes of my little ones.


  1. Love the handprints! I have yet to do any for Owen. I'm sad I didn't when he was first born!

  2. Thanks! Yeah, I kind of wish I'd done them when he was itty bitty, but better late than never I guess.
