Our Elf, Bingo, was acting crazy the last few days before Christmas . . .
Making Christmas (and apparently Valentines) cookies . . .
Christmas Eve was Christmas Day for our family this year and it was so. much. fun. Camille's age combined with Clara's increasing awareness and interest in general made for a fantastic combination.
Santa brought Clara a full size light-up keyboard and she basically went nuts. All day long. I have never seen more joy on a child's face. Also, I have watched these videos approximately 632 times.
Santa brought Camille a battery operated princess riding vehicle. A major hit! Needless to say, we have spent a lot of time outside riding in circles. :)
Christmas with my side of the family . . . I hardly got any pictures of extended family!
Attempt at a cousin picture . . . #nailedit . . .
Christmas with Brandon's side of the family . . .
Clara's happy place . . . she could watch twinkle lights for days. . .
Christmas craft for the kids . . .
Another Christmas in the books! Thankful for family and memories and most of all, the hope found in Jesus' birth.
As for plans for the remainder of 2016? Getting my almost-three-year-old (I know) potty trained. Here we go!
