After stockings were over, our children were blessed with such generosity by so many family members, starting here, with Grandpa and Gigi.
Jacob received a very special gift: Grandpa and Gigi bought him guitar lessons, and below, Jake is holding a 'ticket' for these lessons. He's so excited.
After a wonderful Christmas Eve and Christmas morning spent with Grandpa and Gigi, we drove over to spend the rest of Christmas at Grandma Morey's house.
The boys were particularly excited by their new superhero costumes, as well as some new transformers.
After brunch, the phone was passed around and we all had a chance to say Merry Christmas to Uncle Adam.
And then spent much time sitting around the fire, talking. That was sort of a theme of these past couple of days: chatting while sitting around a crackling fire.
The two baby girls in the family. There are, of course, two beautiful older girls in the family too. But these are the two babies.
Below, a one-socked-Christmas angel, perhaps?
I am blessed; I have so many who I love. As Christmas 2012 draws to a close, my heart is full of thanks.
