Christmas time was bittersweet this year. We were able to be all together this year. Brad came home from New York, Drew is home from school. Annie and Jay came over for Christmas Eve from thier home in Tigard. It was fun to be together!

We did all the usual things:

Fondue dinner

Christmas Jammies (Jay is official now-he has his own jammies!)

Photos of all the kids

We know that this time is fleeting now.

Brad will be in Afghanistan next Christmas

Drew will be in Guatemala

Adam will be in college!

Annie and Jay should still be local

Lainey will be in High School!


Changes around here are no longer subtle.

We love our little family and are so proud of everyone!

We hope every one had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Wow -- a big year ahead for you. I love your comments on my blog and Facebook...they are good reminders that I need to enjoy my kids while they are little!

I'm so not ready to see my kids fly the coop yet. I just keep remembering you telling me that your kids were "just barely" my kids ages. Scares me to death to see all of yours growing up, and so fast. I promise to not blink =)

I love this post. It is bittersweet and yet so wonderful. A special memory to hold on to forever.
