This Christmas was so much fun. And hectic. And slightly overwhelming. Just like a typical Christmas, right? I could listen to Christmas music all year long, but I make myself wait until it comes on the radio full-time. This year we totally missed out and didn’t find Pandora’s Christmas music until the day before Christmas eve. We decorated the week after Thanksgiving and learned quickly that very few decorations could be within finger reach of Brendan. Everything goes straight to his mouth. This meant that our Christmas tree was sparsely decorated on the lower half. Wes and Taylor decorated all the trees out front when I was at work one evening and Brendan continually “ooh-ed and aaah-ed” at the lights every evening. The season was filled with cheer. Without further ado, here are some pictures:
Taylor kept saying “Happy birthday everyone!” when we opened gifts at each different house. When she met santa, she asked him for hot chocolate. Brendan was excited about all the lights and entertainment. He has had a cold for almost the whole month of December so he had some awesome holiday naps. (Apparently he copes with feeling sick like mommy, sleep it away!)
We are very blessed to make it through another year together. Christmas always reminds us of what matters most – as our church says – knowing and loving God and making His love known to others. I hope you saw and knew some of that love this season!
