2013 Christmas Eve Photos

For Christmas Eve we made personal pizzas, saw Santa visiting at our neighbor's house, and watched Elf together.

Watch the video of all the kiddos meeting Santa and getting their gift.  It was cute to see the kids of all ages react to Santa!

First Christmas Program for #BabyMadison

First Christmas Program for #BabyMadison

Madison goes to "school" when Grammy has Bible Study and this week was her first Christmas Program.  We felt like we "leveled up" as parents by going to our first program for our child!

 

Watch this 2 minute highlight video and be sure to watch for the moment that melts your heart.

Here's the full program.  Its about 10 minutes.

#BabyMadison Practices for her Christmas Program

#BabyMadison Practices for her Christmas Program

Tonight Emily was helping Madison practice for her program on Wednesday.  I can't wait to see a handful of toddlers on the stage together singing their own versions of "Away in the Manger."   

I'm not sure where she got the part about God sending "her sister" but it's pretty funny.  My best guess is that it came from hanging out with her friend Emmy this morning or Sydney this evening... or maybe it came from us talking about Ladybug being her "big sister."  Who knows....

(sorry about the volume on the video...its pretty low.  I had a camera setting wrong)

Our First "Real" Christmas Tree

Our First "Real" Christmas Tree

We got a "real" Christmas tree this year.  It was fun to go pick out the tree and Emily did a wonderful job decorating it.

Notice the bow she made on the top, and also the fun packages underneath with the photos of the person receiving the gift as the name-tag.

Fall 2013 Family Photos

Our great neighbor Sabrina did fall photos with our family just in time to catch the great colors in the leaves.  These were taken back behind our house, and we are so thankful to have them.

My Daddy & Maddy Day

Today I took off work because Susu was flying to Texas ... so Madison and I spent the day together.  We had so much fun, so here are the highlights:
