Christmas 2010

Classic Christmas morning photo on the stairs.
This is the only picture I have from the morning.
I must have been tired or thinking about how David would be leaving in 2 hours to go to work, yes on Christmas morning, and I would be alone with all 4. Still getting used to the craziness.

What I remember:
Ella Joy was really upset that she didn't get the porcelain tea set in the picnic basket like she had asked for. Note to her future husband: Get her exactly what she asks for. Do not try to skimp and save $20 bucks. It is not worth it.
Julia could care less about her gifts. She walked around looking for candy that the others had dropped out of their stockings.
Noah was very surprised with his Wii Madden game and said it was the best day of his life.

Opening the package from Aunt KiKi
We were so excited about all the goodies.
We sat around for an hour tasting everything!

Opening gifts from Papa Dean and Grandma Wanda

Gift cards are the best!!!

Georgia Kate is here!

All 9.1 lbs of her!

Jenny's doing well. I'm not sure why she chose to deliver her biggest baby without an epidural, but I'm very proud of her.

We feel very blessed.
Thank you to Grandma Christie for watching everyone during the delivery.

Happy 2nd Birthday JuJu

JuJu turned 2 today!
We are so happy to have her home.
She is such a character.
She loves everyone--especially men.
Everyone we pass at the store or on a walk gets a big wave.
Then she blows kisses as we depart from them.
She doesn't talk much but somehow gets her point across with creative signs, sounds, and other charades.
She loves to climb and jump and is quite a little gymnast.
She is definitely the family clown.
She is so good at mimicking faces--the latest being the slight smirk with folded arms of the Mr. Clean man that she always sees under the kitchen sink.
She always keeps us laughing.
Happy, happy birthday to our favorite 2 year old.
