I love Christmas, I have always loved Christmas, but to see it through the eyes of a child is beautiful! Ethan really "got it" this year...celebrating the birth of Jesus, the Elf on the Shelf, Santa...he was so excited about everything and wanted to share it and talk about it....it was so much FUN! So here is our Christmas (whole month of December) in pictures....
The Christmas Story at church.
Singing at school - Happy Birthday Jesus and We Wish You a Merry Christmas!
Riding the Creekmore Christmas Train.
"You really want me to wear this bow?"
"I just don't think I can do it."
"I'm not kidding!"
Triceratops (This request was given to Santa last Christmas after he received the T-Rex and the Brachiosaur.)
Or your own personal space to clean out your purse?
Ethan, the Christmas elf, delivered presents to everyone - with Grammy and Papa.
Every time you take her picture she says cheese...I promise she is not always squinting!
The Te family (and Clara the photo bomber).
Pop and Gigi - the Saturday after Christmas.
One more "cheese".
Hey Grammy we are all wearing red, lets take a picture.
Showing off the Ninja Turtles in Training.
Santa! This picture was taken Christmas Eve morning at the bank. Last Christmas we had pictures taken with Santa 15 times...this Christmas I couldn't get it worked out. At a fundraiser, Clara wouldn't go near him....Breakfast with Santa at the bank didn't happen...the Christmas parade was postponed and then canceled due to snow and ice. I wasn't sure we were going to get one this year...nothing like squeezing it in at the last minute.
