Christmas was a such a sweet celebration this year! Caleb and Annelise were at such a fun stage- Caleb's anticipation and excitement was precious- he also was at an age where he was better able to grasp the amazing event of Christ's birth which has forever changed history. He even got to play Joseph in our CBS's play!
And Annelise was an absolute doll this year!! She had a blast opening presents! Her expressions and excitement over each gift was priceless! It was a joy to watch her. I just can't believe she's running around everywhere and talking up a storm- oh, how they change so much the first few years.
One of our traditions on Christmas Eve is for the kids to open up a pair of new Christmas PJ's to wear that night! It was fun for Caleb to remember that and look forward to opening his this year. Here they are on Christmas Eve showing off their PJ's under the dining room table- a favorite place for the two of them to play right now- that's another sweet thing this Christmas- Annelise is getting to an age where she can play with Caleb! She growls at him- literally- to get him to chase her around the house- she hides under the dining room table a lot!
Here we are at my parents. Grandaddy read The Night Before Christmas- a tradition we've done for years. Annelise is such a cheese ball!! We had a big Christmas at Mimi's and Grandaddy's as always!! Caleb got an enormous Nerf gun, which the whole family enjoyed, and Annelise got a new baby doll!
