Christmas Eve

We are so excited for our first Christmas with Ellison Grace.

Having her here makes Christmas so much more fun. Last year at this time we knew we were pregnant but no one else did.

This picture was our runner up for our Christmas card picture. We had a large family picture taken when my Mom's side of the family all 35 of us. After that we did smaller family pictures. It was so fun to have everyone together. This year our family had grown by 3. Ellison had cute little tights on to, but she got hot so we stripped her down.

Christmas eve we are having dinner with my cousin Erin and her family,my parents and Aunt will be there as well.We go to there church in the late afternoon. We have been doing this for over 10 years. After we eat we get a special visit from Santa and he brings a gift for all the kids and tells them to head to bed so he can come back soon.
We normally go to church for the late candle light service but Ellison will be fast asleep.

What do you do on Christmas Eve?

Christmas Time!

It is begging to look a lot like Christmas around our house! The tree is up and there is a lot of snow outside. It is so exciting this is Ellison's first Christmas.
I have so many cute Christmas outfits for her to wear in the month of December I will have to do a fashion post with all of them.

We watched White Christmas which is my favorite Christmas movie of all times. I have watched since I was very little every year. It does not feel like Christmas to me until I have watched it. If you have never watched it I would recommend it.

Soon I will be making Christmas cookies too! I just love Christmas time it is so special and I am so excited to start all of these traditions with Ellison. This is Josh and I last year doing some cookies! We got very into it.

I am so excited to get one of these for Ellison so we can teach her all about the reason for the season.
