*Side note* This blog won't let me upload vertical pictures, so I was unable to post some of my favorites: sitting on the stairs before coming down to see the tree (all of us--crowded stairs), Charlie with his first gift from Santa (a little walker that he can push around the house instead of our kitchen chairs), Eli morphing into batman as he put on his cape and mask and Ryder with his new jeans.
|Still unsure as to why we woke him up.... Didn't really pay any attention to the tree or gifts.|
|Happy to leave his wrapped gift to play with Lincoln and his unwrapped gift.|
|When we decided that Charlie just needs a giant box, with wrapping paper, next year.|
|Seriously LOVED every minute in this box.|
|Koby decided to see what it was all about and was pretty pleased with his decision!|
|First granddaughter/niece to join the family, Ivy. We went to her baby blessing before heading home for more festivities.|
|Such an easy-going, beautiful baby! I don't think Charlie ever slept as much as other babies do, so I was amazed at how she would just lay in your arms!|
