It hit me on Christmas Eve, what a difference this Christmas was to last. I mean, two 30 year olds preparing for santa is NOT the same as two thirty year olds and a five year old! Even more, I realized while singing carols at church that until you have a child, it's hard to understand the sacrifice that comes with the Christmas story. It hit home in a different way this year.
So, here is a smorgasbord of photos. You'd think I would know how to do this by now, but I get them out of order every single time. You'll notice Christmas morning she starts off with a shirt and skirt... then on the bike, then off with the skirt. Then on with the wig. Next a tiger tail and face mask. Then off with the whole thing and on to a new outfit :) That's our girl.
The tree farm didn't have much selection, but anything looks killer with this tree topper perched on it!!
best milk and cookies for santa on the block!!! How would I know?????
Grace, Ava and Winnie acting out the Christmas story.
wait, we can do it in the house!!
Lotso smells like strawberries, and my grandma DOES NOT like him.
Winnie will be dressing as Jessie for halloween next year. We've already got the sparkly red hat with the yarn braid attached.
Last week she wanted to be broccoli, so we'll see...
I got many great presents too, one of my favorites being a huge scrap book full of every blog entry and picture!!! WHAT A LABOR OF LOVE!!! Thanks Amanda

Papa spent Christmas in the hospital, so we went many times to cheer him up and decorate his room. He's coming home tomorrow!!!!!
