Since it is almost the middle of December, I think it is time to update the blog with some Christmas pictures. Like most everyone, we have been so busy this month. As stressed as I have been (and it is probably more stressed than I have EVER been), I still feel so blessed. The boys are a lot of work, but they also give me so much happiness. This time of year is extra special. It is so much fun to see Christmas through their eyes. They are so excited about everything – the decorations, the lights, Elfie (who has come to visit us again this year) and of course, the presents. I just can’t wait to see their faces on Christmas morning. In the meantime, I need to remind myself to slow down and enjoy it all. It really is a blessing.
The biggest blessing of 2009…what a sweetie!
On Friday night, we all dressed in our pajamas and drove around to look at Christmas lights (thanks for the idea last year Rebekah!). I made popcorn and the boys ate candy canes. They had so much fun!
The boys with Santa and Mrs. Claus. They all did really well…no tears! Carter told Santa what he wanted for Christmas. Seth asked him where his reindeer were and Ethan just pulled on his beard. I’m sure he was ready to see us go. 🙂
