Christmas, Part Two

I decided to try to catch up after R so gently reminded me that I haven't blogged "since Halloween" (which I have, but I got the point). Christmas with our families is always crazy, fun, and precious - this year more precious, unbeknownst to me, because it was the last time we saw my Granny. I have a lot to say about her, which I will do in time, but for now I am infinitely greatful for the memories of her holding Bug Christmas morning, smiling with pride as she took a picture with her great grands, and giving her the album that my cousin asked me to make as a special gift from us.

Tot School - Holiday Edition

I had so much fun planning Christmas activities for Tink and M! Nothing compares to the excitement of Christmas in a child's eyes. We sorted ornaments, read lots of books, re-told the Christmas story with Tink's Nativity, and (the girls' favorite) learned new Christmas songs. I wish I had more pics to share, but these are the ones I rememberd to take.
