Christmas Goodness

We had the best, relaxing, yummy, warm, white, chocolaty Christmas! I was nervous about being a little lonely with no family around, but we relished in the alone time with our little kids and the magic of Christmas. Both Trev and I thought it was one of our best Christmas's together. BUT, we are ready to party it up with the Dalley group for New Years! Bring on the family, cousins, and games for those over age 6 (you can only play so many games of Disney Bingo without going crazy).

So, here is our holiday in a few pictures..............

Christmas Eve PJs

Ry's spot Christmas morning

Carson's 'Red Rider BB Gun' equivalent:

Those pictures are so cute! I'm glad you had a wonderful Christmas. Baby Ry is growing up so fast! I can't wait to get this little guy out and watch him grow:)

So adorable. I am glad you had a great Christmas. We stayed home as well and thought it was pretty fantastic! Rylan is just so cute!!!

A Work In Progress.. 7:25 PM  

Oh my, all those dimples and rosey red lips, what a cute bunch! We too enjoyed a quiet, small family Christmas (for once, probably won't happen for a very long time, if ever again!), but were very ready to see family after 9 days of being home!
Merry Christmas!

I like the Red Ryder BB Gun equivalent. Zach and Courtney bought DS's with some Christmas money from Grandma and have been playing them non-stop. Our kids are so deprived - don't you think?

Aim 4:36 PM  

I know I am partial, but this has nothing to do with that! You have beautiful beautiful kids. They just are!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
