A few favorites from Christmas...

Last Christmas post - I PROMISE!

Here are a few pictures from our Christmas weekend...
these are some of my favorite things we got to do this year with Annie Louise!

We decorated the Candy Cottage!

I bought this for us to decorate on Christmas Eve -
my cousins, Tessa and Tye (9 and 7 years old) ended up
helping me do most of the work!
Can't wait to pull this out for Annie Louise when she gets bigger!

We wore some very cute Christmas outfits!

Annie Louise looked so cute in her Mattie Mae Designs Christmas onesie
with her name on it...
side note - I can't believe how long her hair looks in this picture!

We opened one early present from Santa!

AL got to open a gift from Santa on Christmas Eve at my grandparents' house, and she was so excited! She got this cat that looks so real - it even meows and purrrrs!
We named her "Noel", and she is one of AL's favorite gifts!

We opened our Christmas pajamas on Christmas Eve while
we watched "The Polar Express"!

We sang lots of Christmas carols with mama on Christmas Eve...

We got one last visit from Santa on Christmas morning before
he went back to the North Pole....and did NOT enjoy any of it!

We opened present after present on Christmas morning!

But most of all, we enjoyed spending time together as a family,
remembering the TRUE reason for the season...
a Savior born in a manger to save the souls of mankind!

And what a blessing this Christmas was to our sweet family,
and we can't wait for many more!
