Christmas 2008

I'm always a little sad to say good-bye to the month of December...the presents are unwrapped, the tree is down, and the decorations are tucked back in their boxes. So much excitement and preparation goes into getting ready for the Christmas season, and it seems to be over in the blink of an eye. It was an exciting Christmas at our house as we celebrated Joseph's 1st Christmas...and of course Sophia's excitement for Santa's arrival made it even more momentous. Sophia was thrilled to see her pink princess bike under the tree, and Joseph was thrilled to have so many boxes to sit on and push around! What a silly little guy! His zoom and play garage seemed to be his favorite treat from Santa.

Though the holiday has come and gone...the pictures keep the memories close at heart. Hope you enjoy the slideshow of how we celebrated with our families this year.... Christmas Eve with my family, Christmas day with Brett's parents, and of course I baked the traditional dime cake for the New Year! Congratulations Anna! She picked the piece that had the lucky dime! Happy 2009!

My daughter, my daughter, you make me cry. I loved your memories---time slips by so quickly. I can look back and celebrate all over again all year long. Happy New Year. And PS Sophia I'm sorry you didn't get the dime----maybe next year! :-) <3
