|Sam ready to meet Santa for the first time|
at the Taylor family party :)
|One of my favorite pictures ever.|
During bathtime, I caught Sam just staring at this picture
of his sister. Swoon!
|Chloe and Rudolph understand:|
the things that make you different
make you amazing!
|I mean.... does it get any cuter?!|
|Move over Anna and Elsa, there's a new ice princess in town ;)|
|The dapper-est little dude I've ever known.|
But he will not keep hats on, no matter how cute they are!
|This picture pretty much sums up|
how Chloe felt about Christmastime
AND how Sam felt about it! Oh my!
|There's just something about this picture.|
I don't know exactly what it is,
but it makes my heart swell.
It's simple, but it's the details that get me.
So grateful for this life.
|A few days before Christmas, Chloe was being extra fussy.|
Oby decided perhaps she was just bored
and decided she needed Santa to bring one of her presents
a little early. So we told her how Santa sent an elf just to her
a few days before Christmas because he heard she wasn't feeling well.
She got this iCraze iPad stand and was able to watch Barney
on Netflix while she was laid up from her hip surgery.
She thought the elf, Santa's special treatment, the stand, and Barney
were all THE COOLEST things ever! She was happy...
for at least an hour! LOL! But seriously, I'll take it! ;)
|The iCraze was a hit!|
|Christmas Eve at my mom's. I am IN LOVE with Sam's face in this pic!|
|Oby and I on Christmas Eve.|
|This cutie patootie did pretty good on Christmas Eve for about an hour|
(that seemed to be her max during the hip surgery recovery period).
She sure looked cute during that hour, though! But wouldn't look at me for a picture! Haha!
|Is there anything better than Christmas Eve as a parent?|
All that work comes down to this moment when you stand back
and see the gifts under the tree and anticipate the next morning.
|Christmas morning was perfection!|
Chloe did relatively well and Sam was crazy excited!
My parents came over for breakfast and we decided
that should be a new tradition.
|One of Chloe's favorite Christmas gifts was this|
"Awesome Book of Awesome Faces" that I made with Chatbooks.

|The day after Christmas, we took Sam out to play in the snow.|
His first time in snow was a hit! He loved it!
Me too, Sam. Me too.
