Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was spent at my parent’s house this year.  It was a full house this year!  The only ones that weren’t able to be there were my sister Emily and her family.  We missed them terribly, but know that they thouroughly enjoyed their White Christmas in Maine.


That is one full table!


The kids had the HARDEST time containing themselves from ripping open all of these presents.  They thought dinner should have been the last portion of the evening.


This was Brooke’s first Christmas which necessitated a super cute outfit and a mini photo shoot. ; ) I had the hardest time finding a first Christmas outfit that was feminine (not usually a problem). So, I found a cute onesie.  I paired it with some tights and a handmade tu-tu and voila…..super cute Christmas outfit!


This is my favorite picture of my three kids.  It just shows each of their little personalities so well.


Brooke hanging out with Great Grandma and Great Grandpa.  I feel so blessed that they have been able to know each of my children and interact with them often.


I had a hard time finding matching Christmas jammies for the kids.  I was able to find some for Gavin and Kayla, but none for Brooke.  So, I took matters into my own hands and made them matching jammie pants.  I was so pleased with how they turned out and I may have to make this a yearly tradition.  I may add in pants for Jeremy and I next year!
