Christmas 2012

I was SO EXCITED for the holidays this year, and I anticipate that to grow as Avery gets older and begins to understand and remember the magic and traditions that make Christmas so special. And we sure did A LOT to ring in holidays this year! We had at least 5 Christmas parties this year, and we baked cookies and listened to A LOT of Christmas music and drove around to see the lights and drank hot chocolate and watched Christmas movies and read Christmas stories...OH MY! I enjoyed every minute of the whole season and I can't wait until next year (though I am very happy to get my house back in order and pack all the stuff away for another year).
This year was extra special because it was Harper Joy's first Christmas and she was at the perfect age to enjoy most of the fesitivities. Also my brother and sister-in-law had a baby on December 20!! My niece, Penelope Louise Feldt was born and 3:01 pm and weighed 7lbs 12oz. Corey and Lauren are the most excited parents ever and she is a lucky little girl to have chosen them to be her mommy and daddy. We wish they were closer so we could watch her grow, but Alex and I were so happy to get to meet her on her second day of life. We can't wait to see her again soon!
Enjoy (a lot) of photos of our Christmas!
