Christmas always reminds me of just how blessed we are. We take a trip out in the morning on Christmas Eve and this year we went to Union Station. Usually we do the national tree and the Arboretum, but we were feeling a bit more low key. Not that fighting for parking and accidentally letting your baby roll into M street in the middle of Georgetown isn't fun - Ugh!
Bella did a little window shopping and some dancing in the middle of the music store. She just might be Daddy's little musician.
More window shopping. Daddy better get used to this, but he already looks like a pro. One day he will be holding her purse rather than her scarf.
The kids are just so excited this year - Bella has been joyfully pronouncing "It's the Christmas Season!!!" since the turkey came off the table in November! The Boy has been keeping a very detailed Santa list now that we can read and write. He also writes us hate mail when he is in time out, but that's another post.
We had our family over for a yummy Christmas Eve feast. Homemade Potatoes Au' Gratin or Heart Attack on a Plate... it was so good.
Hubby's Brother spent the night with our soon to be Sister-In-Law. He put the ring in the tree the week before and asked for her hand in marriage. She's a doll and the kids LOVE her.She's also a school teacher and The Boy thinks that is soooo cool. She has lots of fun with them and teaches them all sorts of cool stuff. Now I can call her when I don't understand the homework that is sent home. Yes I have already had to Google terms used in first grade homework, I guess a Master's degree only goes so far these days.
