Christmas, 2011

We had a wonderful Christmas this year... there was definitely enough going on, but the month of December - though it flew by - did not see ridiculously busy as it sometimes does. It was so much fun to see things through the eyes of the girls - Ella especially - as she can grasp more and more the excitement of the season. It definitely makes it that much more exciting for us as well, and I enjoyed every minute. Here are just a few photos of some of our favorite moments...

Reading the Christmas story...

Always time to give the hair a little twirl...

Our one and only family photo - Ella's preschool Christmas program.

Grandmo and Grandpo

Getting a little tired of the photo shoots by the time it was Papa & Grandma's turn.

Sledding down the Children's Museum slide!

Rethinking the desire to visit Santa...

Finally realized she better talk to him... or risk getting NOTHING for Christmas!!

The End Result.

Christmas Cookies!

Surprisingly brave at the nursing home!

Guess which one did the decorating, and which one did the eating!

I rest my case.
