Gingerbread Houses, Nutcracker, and More!

This Christmas season really has been so enjoyable as the kids are reaching ages where they understand more, can physically do more, and can be excited about the season with us. Here are some pictures of the fun we've been having getting ready. The kids all decorated our gingerbread house together and Matt and I took Addie to see The Nutcracker. She loved her time there and looked so big and grown up! These are some of those memories that you just pray you don't forget. Addie's face at the Nutcracker was just so priceless - and hearing her tell Caleb her version of what she saw was just hilarious! We're very thankful that it worked out for both Matt and me to take her together.

Quite possibly the worst family picture we have. Complete with Addie's "new smile" and my Grave's Disease bulging eyes.

Starting the demolition a week later

Got it!
