{Christmas Day 2009}

Do you think they were a little bit excited? Check out Addy's hair! Ry went straight for Santa's leftover cookies!

Addy's Easy Bake Oven!

Carson's electric scooter!

My kids were completely sold by the infomercial for Snuggies! I was thrilled when my mom offered to make them out of much nicer fabric...the kids love 'em!

Tired yet?
We loved, loved, loved having my parents and sister here for Christmas, and we were so sad to see them leave! My parents spoiled us rotten and helped so much with all the Christmas festivities! We felt so treated! Thanks Mom, Dad, and Erin! We love you and miss you already!

You are a posting maniac tonight!

Love all the pics. We have really enjoyed spending time with you guys over the last few weeks. We need to be better about seeing you more often...the kids LOVE it!

Addy's hair is awesome! They are so gung-ho!

love the pictures! My girls have been dying to get Snuggies since they first saw the infomercial. They recorded it several times to make sure I knew what they wanted and then pointed Snuggies out to me every time we went shopping. Oh the power of advertising.

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.
