Since I have rather recently become one of those super-cool people with a super-cool phone, I give you 25 camera-phone pictures of some of our December moments. Thank you, super-cool phone, for helping me to capture such sweet memories.
there was lots of hot chocolate drinking. also, I am a sucker for retro packaging.
too many sleepless nights, making an exhausted mama and a tired baby boy.
decorating the tree, hanging all the ornaments in that one spot.
playdates of all sorts, some in our pj's on a cold winter morning. dear friends. (thanks to miss Lorie for this one)
feeling festive and fancy, breaking out the red lipstick to spend an afternoon playing piano at a lovely Christmas tea.
dancing in the living room to Christmas carols by the light of the tree.
Bennett, wearer of bow ties and melter of hearts.
cute/silly Christmas cousins.
aftermath of crazy days, of present-wrapping, project-making, four kids and a mommy in holiday mode.
baking, lots of baking. cookies and bars and cinnamon rolls, and holiday bread, oh my.
beautiful chalkboard art by miss Emma.
attempting to take a picture of all 6 of us on Christmas day, in front of our tree...
thankful for these days, thankful for my family and friends, thankful for my Savior.
and, I must admit, glad that the craziness is over. :)
now, back to our normally scheduled lives.
