Holiday Fun

This year was BY FAR the best Christmas of my life. Never has it meant more to me than it has this year. We were able to really feel the meaning of Christmas by having our baby girl in our home. I could have cared less about the gifts- we had our gift! Mollie! (We did love and appreciate the gifts though!) We loved seeing the day through her eyes, even though they were just a little over 4 months old. Merry Christmas!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

A morning chew.

Ready to open presents!

What's that fun thing?

I like this whole present thing!

Paper? What's this all about?

Our musical baby!

We gave Mollie "The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly".
We sang it to her while she turned the pages.

A librarian, perhaps?

Yes, I put a bow on my baby's head.

Silly face!

Mollie's "big" gift from Mom and Dad: the Baby DJ Walker, of course!

Daddy shows Mollie how to really mix a song.

Christmas breakfast.

Christmas smiles!

Mollie hunts for something in her stocking that my Mom made her.

Mollie knows that her Uncle Matt is crazy!

Checking out her Aunt Heather.

Family Photo!

Photo time with Grandpa and Grandma Carow.

Mollie loves hanging out with her Great-Grandma Bombino.

So cute in her gingerbread dress! I got it at the YMCA consignment sale.

Santa Baby!

Mollie looks a little wild in her Santa suit!

I am warm.
I have a roof over my head.
I have a loving husband.
I have an angel for a baby.
I have a great family.
I have food.
I have clothes.
I have a great doctor.
I had my baby in a wonderful hospital.
The tree is lit.
The gifts we have we are given to share.
Share love and kindness this Christmas.
Let's all find a way.
What would happen if we all found a small way to do that?

The stereo is playing Claire de Lune, and my baby rocks safely in her swing. This song will forever melt my heart when it comes to Mollie. It was the first song she heard after her birth- the first song we heard as a family. It probably played a hundred times in my hospital room. I am so lucky. Christmas has never meant more to me and my husband. We are so blessed. To think how long it took- every moment was worth what we got in return. We have a little slice of heaven to love.
