Week 41 - December 23 - 29, 2013
Merry Christmas everyone! When I started editing this week's footage I had over an hour of video to pare down to under 20 minutes - because let's face it, 20 minutes is still MORE than enough. Because of this I kept other days minimal and just focused on Christmas morning and present opening.
Christmas Eve church service was really nice. My parents came with us and the kids looked so cute in their outfits - William with pinstripe vest and pants and a hot pink pocket square, and Hannah with a beautiful dress that she fell in love with at the store. Unfortunately we decided to go to the 4pm service, and Hannah was so excited to see Memaw and PaPa that she went down late for a nap and woke up with a grumpy overtired attitude. William ate puffs by the handfuls and was jabbering during the service. It was far from picturesque, but in other ways it was exactly how church with a 9m old and 3 year old should be.
Christmas Morning was better than I imagined. Hannah and William slowly made their way through the presents and we were still opening some well after dinnertime. They spent the whole day playing, laughing, trying to walk, watching Little Mermaid, and playing with Play Doh. I just had to include a picture of Santa's cookie plate. Hannah did a great job writing Santa! (She's 39 months)
Speaking of 'trying to walk' William took his first real step on Christmas!
I didn't get it on film, but I captured nearly every failed attempt. Figures. Oh well.
And finally - look at my 'little' girl. She's wearing her Belle earrings which make her look like a teenager. She's so smart and sweet and beautiful.
