I’m not sure I’ll ever get through all the oodles of Christmas pictures, for now here are some of the ones I found that I like.
Our Christmas spanned several days. First we had Beatrice’s birthday (which will eventually, hopefully, be a real post), then her party. Matt’s parents stayed overnight and we celebrated Christmas the 23rd with them. The 24th we went to mass and opened a few gifts that had come in the mail from family members. Christmas day we opened our stockings (from Santa) and the gifts from each other. On the 26th, we flew to Tallahassee to spend some time with my family.
Here are some pictures from Tallahassee. The girls all had fun playing with new toys and friends. Beatrice pretty much would only let Matt or I hold her for more than a minute, so there aren’t too many pictures of her with others.
A good friend from college came up from Gainesville with her two kids. Her daughter is just 5 days older than Eloise and her son is about 2 months old.
Both of my sisters were there for at least part of the time. The girls loved exploring their rooms and finding new things to play with.
We met up with some old Tallahassee friends at a park one day. Greta had a great time. Eloise was exhausted and so wasn’t into playing for most of the time. It is always so nice to meet up with folks who we don’t get to see often and have the kids play together. This time we got to see some people I hadn’t seen in many years, like since high school graduation!
My mom bought us all matching nightgowns.
Granddaddy is always a favorite.
We went to a favorite local light display and my dad joined us.
And that’s all for now. More when there aren’t two children screaming at me and pulling on my body and biting my legs.
