The Season is OVER

Well, we had a wonderful Christmas season this year. We were very very busy, but it all just added to the fun! Here's some of my favorite pics, in no paticular order.

Lindsay begged and begged for Pixos. She was so excited to get them and she does really well with them too! They proved to be the hit of the day as Brandon and Logan liked playing with them too (although this also caused some problems as you can imagine)

Every year we make Christmas cookies. I almost let it go this year, like I did with neighbor gifts and Christmas cards (I just ran out of time!) but we all decided that Santa really needed some pretty home-made cookies for his plate!

Christmas jammies!!! One of my favorite traditions! Every year we get new jammies. My family did it growing up and we have kept the tradition alive, and I love it!

This is a weakness of mine. Christmas Sunday clothes! Seriously is there anything more fun than buying beautiful outfits and dressing your kids up for the special day?

Decorating the tree. As you can tell, Logan particulary enjoyed himself. He loved decorating the tree so much he decorated and undecorated it as often as he could the whole month!

Brandon got his first bow and arrow set. He was SO excited! We took him out that day and he is actually a really good shot already!

We hope you all had a wonderful season like we did, although I have to admit... I am enjoying the slower pace of January.

Seriously, Lindsay's dress is divine, and your boys look smashing. Here's to a calmer January!

Steph and Zach said...

Fun pictures! I LOVE the picture of them all in their Sunday clothes. Zach and I have been continuing our jammie tradition as well. It's a good one!

My Angels said...

Logan is getting so BIG, I think he is almost smiling for the camera, what great picture of the three of them! Looks like you had fun, glad that things are slowing down for ya.

Anna said...

Yay for matching Sunday clothes! Love it. Logan looks older with that hairdo . . . how old is he again?

I am glad you have traditions. Adam and I realized we don't have any that we have carried on . . . I'll have to make him PJ's next year!!!

We do the jammies thing too. I think more people than I realize do it. So glad you had a good Christmas...and like you, I'm glad it's over. It's nice to get back into a routine after a month or so of craziness. I can never get my tree down fast enough after the
I can't believe how big your kids are getting! And you need to post some cute pregnant pics!

The Cox Family said...

LOL- i love the decorating spirit Logan had :) And yes- there is nothing better than darling kids dressed up in darling clothes! And your kids top the cake!

I have the most beautiful grandkids in all the world. The picture of them in their church clothes is now my background picture! Thanks for sharing! I love you all!
