So, I know you all are so thrilled that I'm back. I am too! Plus, I have a ton of pictures to update you with, so let's get started. These are all totally random from December. If posted in order and with a quirky little story, they would obviously be more fun and charming, but instead, we are stuck with just random thoughts and titles. Enjoy it if you can.
|Luke wrapping his very first present. Using his foot to hold it still while he gets the tape.|
|Getting their picture with Santa. Almost always a dismal result.|
|Telling Santa what they want for Christmas. Not a single one asked to go to Disney World. That should have been our first clue . . .|
Instead, the older kids have taken to asking for outrageous things like 100 servants, and all the wishes in the world. It was a bit nauseating. Here is one of several letters that Luke and Evie wrote to Santa this last year.
I got to take Evie to the Nutcracker again this year. We went with my friend Caroline and her daughter Eva - who Evie considers her "twin". They are adorable together. And to be fair, Eva Elizabeth and Evelyn Elizabeth are pretty close! Unfortuantely, they don't understand why they can't live together.
|Evie at the Nutcraker. She loved it again!|
|The best picture we got from the kids for our Christmas Card after 321 takes. Unfortunately for them, we didn't use this one.|
|Evie got a Barbie. I think that makes #74 in her collection.|
|George and Luke with their gifts. Most likely Legos.|
And then back at the homestead with Chuck's family. I didn't actually get very many pictures, but this one was priceless!
|George and Pawpaw. I freaking love this picture!!!|
Going back in time even more, here is George's birthday party. Isn't he adorable?
|George's birthday party. A pajama jump house party.|
|All three kids at the party - we were still trying to get a good picture for the Christmas card. This one was also discarded.|
