Charlotte - 18 months!

Our baby girl is growing so fast.  She had her 18 month check-up today - with NO shots!  She is 26 pounds (75%) and 36 inches long (75%).  I just can't get enough of this spunky toddler that definitely has a mind of her own, and I'm so thankful to have two happy and healthy girls!

Christmas Morning

Christmas was so much fun this year.  All the magic and excitement I felt as a little girl was back.  I couldn't sleep the night before because I was so excited.  I got up at 4am, made a cup of coffee and snuggled up by the tree to watch A Christmas Story.  I was surrounded by Santa's gifts with a fire in the fireplace patiently waiting for my girls to wake was one of those perfect moments. 
They were finally ready to come downstairs around 7am.  I don't think Lily really got the awesomeness of Christmas morning before this moment.  I'm pretty sure she's got it now, and she'll probably be up with me at 4am next year!

Christmas Eve

We went to the children's service at the girls' preschool on Christmas Eve.  Unfortunately, Josh ended up working most of the day and wasn't able to go with us.  I was a little worried about the girls behaving during the service, but they did wonderful.
Afterward, we headed home to make cookies for Santa.
