Christmas 2010

We had a wonderful first Christmas as a family of three!  It was very laid back but we needed the relaxation after traveling for Thanksgiving and being out of town the week before Christmas.

Alex left the house super early on Christmas Eve morning to go fishing.  I kindly told him that he wasn't allowed back in the house unless he brought me fish.  He took me serious and brought home 3 reds, 2 trout, and a flounder!!!

After Alex got home, we got everyone ready for Christmas Eve service.  We went to the 7pm service which had me a bit nervous as that is after Kate's normal (I say normal but lately nothing has been normal about her sleep patterns) bed time. 

She was an angel!  Kate loved people watching (she is quite the nosey baby) and loved all of the music.  She fussed for a few seconds before taking a bottle and falling asleep.  Everyone sitting around us commented on how cute she was and how wonderfully she did in the service!  This is a bad cell phone picture but here she is taking in all of the sounds of Christmas Eve!!!

We had a wonderful Christmas morning as well!  We munched on homemade biscuits and gravy while we showed Kate all of her presents. 

No make up, covered in droll and spit up, but loving every minute of Kate's first Christmas!

I cannot find the words to express how much this Christmas meant to us.  Words cannot express how absolutely blessed I feel.  For the first time in several years, we felt content on Christmas day.  No sad tears, no longing, just praising our God for finally blessing us with our miracle baby.

Brian is very jealous about the fish. Cod is the only fish anyone can catch here this time of year and that fishing comes with frigid temps; not fun! So glad you had a beautiful Christmas with your beautiful fam.
