one of many new babies- good thing Lydia has a doctor kit for all those runny noses and colds they will have this winter!

AND...also Pappi!!! We are so thankful to our friend Laurie W. for finding our beloved Pappi so that he could enjoy Christmas with us!

And to think, we still have 3 more Christmas events to go! What a blessed little girl we have! Merry Christmas!

Oh You Better Not Pout!

I am working on addressing my Christmas cards this week. I love sending Christmas cards every year. I keep all my cards from previous years and look at them when I unpack the decorations. It is so nice to see friends' families who are close and those who are far and see how their family changes each year.

This year I was excited to get some pictures of Lydia made for our Christmas card. Nana bought Lydia a beautiful dress with a red sash for Christmas. I had high hopes of getting a picture of ALL 3 of us to send out this year. Josh and I were coordinating so well with our baby girl and I just knew we could get atleast one decent one of us all together. Well here is a preview:

Needless to say, the card that will be mailed out will only have Lydia. She decided that we didn't need to be in the picture with her! I am sure that we will cherish this picture (as Melissa D. suggested we keep it) and there will be many more photo moments like this with her and future children.

If you have a fun Christmas photo, like the above, I would love for you to share it on your blog!
