One Last Christmas Memory...

After uploading my Christmas post, I received this picture of the kids with Santa today.

Since we've never actually made it through the mall lines to sit on Santa's lap, it sort of feels like I should post this picture for posterity since 3 out of 4 kiddos sat pleasantly on jolly old Saint Nick's lap, but poor Emerson wouldn't have anything to do with him.

Thankfully we didn't have a long mall line to stand in at the Holiday Sunday brunch a few weeks ago. The kids enjoyed talking to Santa and eating their candy canes while we enjoyed our time visiting with Gigi and G-Dad.

I loved this beautiful smocked dress that my Mom did for Ava Jane, what a fun keepsake, a handmade dress from her Gigi. My Mom has quite a lengthy list of things that she's good at, and once again, proved she's still got it, after twenty-something years since smocking for Whitney and I, she quickly and easily whipped out this piece. Thanks again Mom for wanting to do something so special for Ava Jane to wear!

And G-Dad with his little "mini-me"…oh how I love these two!

This Christmas season really was such fun. Its hard to believe its come and gone already. I genuinely had such a great time with my immediate and extended family and am so thankful for the memories made and the time we got to enjoy.
