Christmas Eve 2011

This Christmas was extra special because it was baby Jess's 1st Christmas. We feel so blessed to have two beautiful healthy kids to celebrate the holidays. And look how Connor loves his little sister. 

Seriously SO CUTE.
Uncle Terry came over for Christmas eve dinner. Dad roasted a turkey and we made stuffing, butternut squash, cranberry sauce and spinach salad. 
Then Connor wrote his letter to Santa and made special cookies to leave for him...which mom ate before going to bed.
Look at the ears on our little Jessica .... looks like she could just fly away. LOL

Uncle Terry did a very special reading of 'Thidwick the Big Hearted Moose' by Dr. Seuss. Chris and Terry's grandmother who past away a few years ago read this book to them every Christmas when they were kids. Chris teared up right away when Terry showed him the book. It was such a thoughtful gift. 
Thank you Uncle Terry.

After the little ones went to bed we stayed up watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (a tradition for Chris and I) and Chris and Terry set up the Christmas train under the tree. 

And filled the train cars with candy which Connor ate for breakfast. 

Oh Christmas tree how I love thee.
