These are just a few photos from our family Christmas, which we actually celebrated on Christmas Eve this year. With all my sisters now married, the holidays get a little tricky with trying to coordinate everyone’s schedules so that we can all be together. Now we’ve got 3 other family’s to contend with! (which is totally a blessing mind you) But I do love it when it works out that we can all celebrate Christmas together at my parent house. My little sister just welcomed her third baby boy, Cole, to the world 7 days ago….on my BIRTHDAY! Pretty cool to share my day with him. Holding his tiny body, it’s hard to remember Rylee ever being that small….but once upon a time, she was. Now she is this spunky little person with a mind of her own. Where does the time go!
We were also really glad to share this Christmas with my Grandma…it being her first Christmas without my Grandpa. There were some tears shed and memories shared as we remembered how much he loved Christmas time. It was his favorite. And when we hear all the Christmas carols, we can hear his voice. I’m thankful that new life can bring so much happiness where it’s needed. Rylee’s energy and laughter brought my Grandma such joy….and man, was she at the top of her game! Ha! I only wish I would have captured some of it on video. I really need to get better about taking video! It’ll be at the top of my list of 2013 resolutions.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas…link to your Christmas posts if you want too! I’d love to check them out. xo.
Oh…and Sam got me a hot air balloon ride….dream come true.
