WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS:
This Christmas was super fun! Sawyer was just old enough to open his own presents...well, present (that's what Tarpon is for) and Cayman well, she was a hoot! She LOVED every single present and finally, really got this whole Santa thing.
|Hope these outfits fit next year...I will get a better picture...promise.|
|This was what the majority of the shots really looked like.|
Our little family of now four has managed (not intentionally) to stay in Dallas for Christmas the past four years and in that time, we have managed to create our own little set of traditions. Christmas Eve consists of Christmas Eve Service at HPUMC and a lovely dinner at Rise No.1, yummy! After the kiddos get Santa's goodies set out and tucked in, Mommy and Daddy crack open a bottle of wine, open a gift from each other and throw together some Christmas cheer to be ready for the Santa's arrival early in the morning.
|Rise No.1 maiden voyage and first soufflé.|
|Between all the little snacks of cheese, crackers, bread and butter, fruit and eggs, Cayman |
is always super good at this dinner. Of course, she has to be good for Santa, right?
|Now, this one was a crap shoot, but who knew a loaf of French bread |
would keep a teething boy busy for an hour and a half. Joy to the World!
|Another little tradition is open a little box of goodies from our sweet German family friends. Always the most original and sweet packages come from there.|
|Absolutely in love with all of these people. Grams and PopPop, you have done well.|
|Get ready Santa and reindeer!|
|ARRRRR. I mean, how cute are these Christmas pjs and the pirate boy in them!|
|Cayman asked Santa (in that sweet letter) for butterfly wings and |
butterfly house shoes.
|Bar none, Tarpon's favorite holiday. At almost 10 years old, he has perfected his gift opening skills. He is quite good! Here he is with his old grays and new pheasant.|
