This was a tough Christmas, being that my husband was over 7,000 miles away and not able to celebrate the holidays with family. Lucky for me, I was able to go to MI for 2 weeks, visit family, and play with all my little nieces and nephews. I had so much fun with them. All of them have such unique personalities and it's such a joy watching them all grow up. Most of the time we relaxed around the house, but I was also able to visit with a few friends, as well as register at Babies R Us. I'm sure I'll need to go back, but I wanted my sister to go with me, since she has recently had a baby and could tell me what I will need for our upcoming arrival.
Lilly, making me b-e-a-utiful...she is all girl
Lilly & Jack spent the night, Lilly and I had a dance party. Lilly had to try on ALL of our old dance costumes and prance around in them. I was sooo tired that night, but what fun!
Jack Jack is such a little cutey, and just as sweet of a little boy
Blake is as crazy as ever...he's becoming more of a cuddle bug, giving lots of x's and o's
Grandpa playing ping-pong...we didn't know he played until Dad put a railing on the stairs so he could come down to play!
Layla, the lovebug...she would literally run from person to person, giving hugs and kisses. She's a climber, watch out Becky & Eric!
Jess & Iris...Iris is turning into a super cutie and will not let you put her down. She is definitely going to break some boys' hearts.
Lilly & the customary stocking orange...didn't everybody get an orange?!
My baby #1 & I on Christmas morning
Jordan on Santa's lap...he was so brave!
Lilly & Jack, telling Santa what they wanted for Christmas
Jordan & my spike hairdo...I tried to spend a lot of time with Jordan, because he really doesn't know me very well. We created a secret handshake and he wanted to do it over & over and laughed so hard every time...we bonded.
Jess & I...don't you love her new 'do?
