Christmas Begins

We have had a weekend full of Christmas festivities. Here are a few photos of the fun:

My sis and brother-in-law came in from Georgia on Friday and had dinner at our house along with Daniel's sister. Yes, Madeline eats in just her diaper when we are at home. :)


Saturday night was cousin Annie's first birthday party. She LOVED her cake. The pink icing was everywhere!


Madeline gets SO excited to see her Aunt Rachel (Ka-Kel is how she says it). Aunts and uncles are always good for some rambunctious play time.


Here's M showing off her somersault skills. She is very proud of this new trick that her daddy taught her.

"Christmas Day" for our family was on Sunday. Here's my sister Rachel, her husband Charlie, and sweet, 4-month-old Abigail.


Daniel and me


Abigail and Santa, I mean, my dad


Rachel, Charlie, and cousins Andrew and Becca


Cousin Hope and Annie


Madeline is absolutely in love with Abigail and hovers over her all the time. She kisses and pats her and loves to lay on her play mat with her. I am thinking that she is going to be a great big sister in a few months.



Abigail makes a great centerpiece.


This is our attempt at a family photo at a big family Christmas party on Monday night.


We gave up after two tries...


And... I couldn't resist sharing... I got the best Christmas gift ever from Daniel: Fleece footie pajamas with matching ones for Madeline! Seriously, I LOVE them.
