christmas

So Christmas was great, even if we were sick and it was just our little family. We still enjoyed ourselves and made the best of it by focusing on what we would like to make traditions in our home for future Christmases.
Landon got some Living Scripture books for Christmas and here he is pointing out Jesus.

Our little Katelyn with a bow on top--she was our Christmas gift this year.

Landon needed a little help unwrapping his presents but then he got the idea and tore into the rest of his gifts. We had taken a video but it was too large to download to blogger :( But just know that he had a blast. Thank you for all the lovely gifts.
We hope you all had a great Christmas and we wish you a Happy New Year's.

Oh Christmas tree

We were not going to get a tree because the kids are so young but we had quite a few people tell us we just HAD to have one to see our little boy's face light up when he saw the tree all decked out in lights and ornaments...so we caved.
(There is a video at the end of this post that shows his awed reaction.)
Oh, and by the way, after spending a half-hour putting all the decorations in the perfect spot, it only took about 2 minutes to put them all at the top of the tree once Landon decided to remove them in a not-so-gentle manner!

And here is one attempt at a family shot in front to the tree. It's amazing that when you have kids you can take tons of photos and still not have a perfect photo. Oh, well.

He was cranky coming down the hall, but then he turned the corner. I love that he just let me pop the binki out of his mouth.

A baby blessing

Our little Katelyn Jane had her baby blessing last Sunday. Her daddy did a wonderful job and we are very much looking forward to watching her grow up.
The beautiful dress you see was made by my wonderful mother-in-law. That was a blessing in and of itself because the last time I sewed was back in the 8th grade in Home Ec.

Katelyn's Grandma and Grandpa Davis and Aunt Lindsie made the trek out to spend this special occasion with us.
