and yet, so exciting. we had some really, really good family time over the holidays.
and i have a funny feeling that i'll be playing catch up on this blog for the entire month of january.
but hey, i want these memories for the books. so let's get to it. this post is ALL over the place.
i soaked up every last minute with these 3. we played & played. went to look at christmas lights every night. got ourselves in trouble. rode bikes outside. watched cars & toy story on cold days. drank hot chocolate. stayed up late with scooter & watched law & order in bed. decked the halls.
every once in awhile camden still needs an short nap in the early evening. i love those times because i get to cuddle up with my boy. - my friend lorieloo made this adorable little wooden family of four for me for christmas. i love it so much. - we hung our cards from twine this year & every day miles would ask if he could hang one. so i finally let him & he carried that card around with him & kept rehanging it all day. - and we gave the kids a big trip to disneyland for christmas! yay!
we met santa. it was awesome, as you can tell by my face. freezing cold with a super sick little boy & no socks. but that doesn't stop us. - my mom & sister came to visit for christmas. it was SO FUN. we danced & ate & cooked & laughed. and we all miss them already. - we also met a sketchy mickey. so fun. but just not the real deal. at all.
my mom & sis bought miles a big train table. scott was in all his glory putting it together. - my mom found some socks that my grandma used to wear & busted them out. i'll probably get in trouble for posting this picture of her but why not, you know? - miles just loved all his gifts. he lucked out this year.
i also lucked out. my mom surprised me with adobe illustrator for christmas. i had NO clue it was coming & cried when i opened the package. i am so excited to learn the program. - and my sweet hubs makes my blog into a book every year. it is my favorite present to open every year & i cry each time. i love that we have that treasure for my children.
i am so thankful for my little family of 4. it felt different this year having camden jane with us & finally feeling complete & whole. our family is no where near perfect & we have a lot of craziness in this house but it is perfect to me. i am excited for the future & how the Lord teaches us, grows us, & guides us.
so many more posts to come - disneyland, christmas with scott's family, new things in the shop, more on that awesome blog book & one special birthday boy.
but for now i will say, this Christmas was one of my absolute favorites. i thank the Lord for that.
