in memory of christmas

we both agreed it was the best one of all. is there anything more fun than seeing your two year old open and exclaim over his presents? (he would have been totally happy with his stocking alone. ha!) or the christmas miracle of asher REALLY learning how to sit up and play with his toys and then keep sitting up all day long. or the fun we had having a little party to celebrate Christ's birth? and then there is the fact that we get to just relax and enjoy each other's company all day long with no distractions. ahhhhhh. :)





it was a happy happy holiday and instead of being too sad it's over, which inevitably we are, we are keeping the fun going today. just got back from a perfect beach day and now the boys are bathed and napping. i love the holidays. hope yours was special too!

It looks like a wonderful celebration. I love the picture with the frog umbrella and the little red piano is adorable. Merry Christmas!

I think we lived the same day . . . down to some very specific details. Not the 2nd born sitting up or anything . . . we're still aways away from that, but, well, I'll show you later. :)

Ash- I'm either just awesome like that I guess? Or just a big, fat loser. Probably the latter.

oh goodness, friend, we got two of the same books! i didn't even dare ask for them (beautiful as they are), and my amazing mother-in-law just got them for me because she thought i would love them.

and i do.

and i love that your christmas was so wonderful.

Jack got the same tonka racing track...and would have been completely fine with just his stocking, too. So fun when they're old enough to at least kind of "get it". What a fun day for you with such sweet boys!

Melissa said...
