Christmas 2011

Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating Jesus' birth with your family and friends! We had a great time celebrating with our little family of four and also seeing a lot of family over the week of Christmas.

Gabe worked Christmas eve and day, so we stayed close to home. We attended a Christmas eve service with Gabe's parents. It was a beautiful service and the girls did outstanding! Avery even got my attention during worship to tell me she had to go potty (our big news for the Christmas season, more later). It was such a delight to attend church all together! I will forever love singing "Silent Night" to candle light. So powerful!

Christmas morning we woke up early to eat waffles and open presents with the girls before Gabe went into work. It was so fun to watch them open gifts together as sisters. Thankfully Gabe didn't have to work very long because we spent the rest of the day lounging around in our pj's.

Christmas night we met Gabe's parents at the Broadmoor for dinner, which was wonderful. The Broadmoor is so beautifully decorated at Christmas time. Thank you for letting us join you for a wonderful Christmas dinner.

The post is definitely overloaded with photos, but I want to remember these sweet memories and our first Christmas with TWO girlies! And of course, the photos are backwards...

Gabe wanted to show his parents where he proposed to me just over 5 years ago. It was freezing cold and the girls were both having meltdowns, but it was sweet to revisit that special spot!

Avery loved looking at this beautiful display of gingerbread houses!

Gabe was having the girls wrestle one another...
