the days before Christmas...

So aside from being stranded in our house for days leading up to Christmas...it DID make for a relaxing time...plus being housebound made me clean my house, catch up on laundry, get all the Christmas stuff done, etc...here are some snapshots leading up to the BIG day...
Moses took all his little family on a trip to visit the baby Jesus...in this photo he was saying "Daddy goes to see baby Jesus...he says 'Hi baby Jesus. I love you.'" It may have been one of the sweeter play moments of Moses' that I have witnessed.
Moses and Aaron pose for photos with baby Jesus.
On Christmas Eve...while Doug was finishing up with work, we made some cute paper crafts that Moses seemed to really enjoy...bonus was that they were free. :)
Somewhere in Norwegian history there is a Christmas gnome...this is Moses' version.
We enjoyed some cookies...and milk of course.
Every year I make gifts for Doug to take to his coworkers. This year I went the nerdy route...I made him bull's eye cookies(fyi-he is an exec at Target)...in addition to others. I LOVE how they turned out. :)
And Aaron was Aaron. We call him Baby Ho Ho or tiny ho ho.
Poor kid...that is actually his nick name.
He got a new tooth for Christmas...with another on the way.
Last photo before Christmas...two wiggly boys in matching jammies. :)

More Christmas goodness to come...and just WAIT until you see the new things I am working on for shop...hope your day is super happy! :)
Pin It!

Did you get a new lens? If not, whatever you're doing new with your pictures looks GREAT! Or maybe you're doing nothing new and I'm just going crazy. That could very well be . . .

Merry CHRIST mas Crystal! Hope you have a wonderful rest of your holidays!
What wonderful traditions you have, and I am sure very soon you'll need two monkey breads due to the fact that you have growing boys:)
Can't wait to see your new shop items:) (I actually can't wait to put in my first order )
