Christmas 2013

Is it just me or did the second half of 2013 fly by at a ridiculous pace? I missed blogging so many things, including a wonderful trip to West Virginia, Thanksgiving, and NYC. To catch up or not to catch up….We shall see.

Back to Christmas. Each year is a little more fun with Lincoln as he gets older and can really get into the fun of all the festivities. He has loved saying, “Merry Christmas!” everywhere we go.

This boy melts my heart. Getting ready to visit family on Christmas Eve.

He was given a fire truck that belonged to his daddy many years ago.

Love these two.

If I’m lucky enough to live to be an old lady, I imagine that the images of my baby in his flannel pajamas jumping up and down as he opens presents on Christmas morning will be among the sweetest memories I’ll have in life.

Can you tell he gets basically no attention from my family? Opening his gift from Mimi & Papa.

Playing with his Sonic from Uncle Tyler & almost Aunt Laura. Those two stayed with us this week, and Lincoln was beyond thrilled to spend so much time with them. Any time they left to visit other family & friends, he whined and moped around.

My grandparents. Dad’s parents and mom’s mom. (Plus one of my grandma’s friends)

My sweet grandma. I miss her a lot, and don’t get to see her often enough.

We were lucky enough to have some friends join the family gathering. Love these guys.

  1. Thank you, Heidi, these are great. It fills in the gap I had since we couldn’t be together on Christmas day.
