Christmas Day 2011

We woke up to the sound of an excited Avery crawling out of her room whispering, “It’s here! It’s finally Christmas! Come on! Lets go see the snow!” She was so focused on seeing the unfortunately non-existent snow, that she only noticed all the presents after I told her to look at the tree!
Opening stockings.
Ready for church :)

Avery and I tried out a new hairstyle for church, which is why her hair was in rags for the Christmas Eve pictures :) I think it turned out super pretty, but the pictures don't do it justice! (I found it here)

After church, more present opening!! Hooray! Angry birds :)

I got some video of them opening the marble race from Grandma. All three of them LOVE it!
We had our friends over for Christmas dinner (they brought half the food!) I didn't get any good pictures, but I thought this one was exceptional in it's awfulness!

How did I manage to miss this post - lovely. I see Gabe has given himself facial hair for Christmas - does he intend to treat it like a puppy, "A puppy is for life, not just for Christmas"? It's so lovely to see all the excitement of stocking presents on the family bed. How perfect Avery's hair looks, she has the most gorgeous hair and that mass of curls is just lovely. I am, of course, thrilled that my present has gone down so well, I love marble racers and am happy that my grandchildren do too. Oliver looks even more grown up than the last time I saw him. Thank you for these lovely pictures, Josephine, it was the next best thing to being there for Christmas.
