My little girl on her first Christmas (2010).


With six young children, I don’t need to tell you things get crazy around our house during the “holidaze.”  As stressful as the days prior to Christmas can be, the holiday itself is a time for us all to relax, play, and just BE. And our reward is moments and memories like the one here — my then 7-month-old daughter last year, thrilled by the sights and sounds of her first Christmas. With those wide eyes and the hat pushing out her ears, she looks every bit the munchkin elf! :c)

From our chaotic home to yours, we wish you peace and joy this Christmas.
