First Christmas Pictures

Well, as I sorted through pictures yesterday I realized that Doug and I were really too busy participating in the Christmas decorating to get pictures of everyone in the process! I guess that's not a bad thing though, is it? We had a great time, and somehow managed to avoid the typical insane chaos that usually accompanies pulling out the Christmas decorations. That was nice. I will confess, we did go through our Christmas stuff just as we have everything else in the house.

We did realize something. We collect nativities, but I think we're about to run out of room! So, as much as I love seeking out unique new nativities, there will be no new ones, at least for a few years!

Here are a couple of pictures I did get during the decorating...organizing tree parts for assembly...
...and decorating the tree. They did a really good job, too! Olivia can now reach pretty high, so the dispersement is improving!One of my favorite things is getting Christmas pictures. I'm sure there will be many more over the course of the month, but today the kids sweetly put on their Christmas outfits and posed for the first of the pictures. We did have to bribe Steven, but then he was pretty compliant for an opinionated three-year-old! Here are just a few of the pictures we took today.

First the casual...
Then the dressy...
