Christmas 2012

Christmas 2012

Now's as good a time as any right? ;)
Listen, only 2 weeks later is actually on time for me.
I don't know how all ya'll can find time to have your fabulous Christmas posts up next day.
I'm seriously impressed. 
But that's alright. Here it is in all it's glory: 

Christmas 2012: Lily Belle
(First things first... milk, obviously.)

We did our Christmas on Christmas Eve morning this year since we traveled on Christmas day to be with my familia.
Lily rocked her new Chrimstas jammies... complete with tiny Milos (pugs) in pink sweaters. 

Christmas 2012: Lily Belle
1. Milk is still > presents.
2. No wait ripping paper is fun.
3. Oooh! Sparkly tissue paper!
4. Beautiful baby from Aubrey Plays. Seriously perfect.

Christmas 2012: Milo

We just picked one special gift for Lil this year.
Hunter and I are still trying to figure out exactly how we want to celebrate Christmas & create our own family holiday traditions.
But one thing we're sure of is that we want the focus to be on love+fam+Jesus+joy.
Gifts are super fun & we love giving them/getting them :)
But in my humble opinion one super special gift can be a lot more meaningful than piles of new toys.

(Plus, we're still at the age where the big boxes are way more fun than the toys!)

Christmas 2012: Lily Daddy

Daddy scored snuggles with the Sesame Street (aka: Sheshamee Shmee if you speak Lil) color book he snuck into her stocking.
She wasn't as impressed with the big girl panties I contributed... huh.
Take a hint Lily ;)

Christmas 2012: Lily@PFChangs
(A Christmas miracle! She left her pigtails in for dinner at PF Changs!)

Christmas 2012: Hunter Hayley

Somehow these are the only pictures I managed to get between chowing on lettuce wraps & chasing Lily around the restaurant.
But I love this one of Hunter and his beautiful sis!
Christmas 2012: Lily Christmas toys
Pretty baby loving her new toys from Mor Mor & Pa Pa before boarding a jet plane for Gigi & Grandpa's.)

Lily+Grandpa Brad= BFF

Christmas 2012: Trav Mom
Mama & Travi in their festive holiday attire.
Apparently Trey & I weren't photo-worthy.

Christmas 2012: Lily Granddad

And the 2012 picture of the the year....
 Lily Belle giving smoochies to her 100-year-old great-great-grandad Adams.
Judging by his huge grin, it was just what he needed.
He's a man of very few words, but I would guess that the best comfort when mourning the loss of your bride of 77 years would be smoochies from a sweetheart grandbaby.
The sweetest thing is that Lily Belle has a tendency to be very closed-fisted with her affection.
She's not quick to open up to strangers & it usually takes awhile to earn her love & smooches.
I happen to think that she's also intuitive even at this early of an age.
Grandad needed her love & think she just knew it deep down in her sweet tiny little heart.
Merry Christmas indeed.


  1. ah that is adorable! some of the most precious moments are between generations :)
