This year we got to spend and extra amount of time with everyone and with that, came a lot of pictures! It was very hard to decide which ones were my favorite, so I created these blog layouts to help keep the size down a smidge. 🙂 God has blessed us so much this year, and Christmas was no exception…lots of family time and some great gifts for the girls! We had a blast and are STILL hearing about it from Chloe!
This first set is from Christmas Eve at my Grandma Joan and Papa Harold’s home in Rocklin. Chloe & Sam’s cousin Creighton was able to keep up with them a lot better this year, and we were blessed to welcome Gabriel to the Needham clan. 🙂 Just recently, our family welcomed another little baby to the world, making Grandma Joan & Papa Harold Great Grandparents for 5 amazing children!
This was so funny – Samantha was totally expecting Uncle Ryan to feed her the yummy whip cream and was MORTIFIED to get it wiped on her nose! It started a little battle between them, and was super cute to watch. 🙂
These were from a day when we went over to Auntie Em’s house to make gingerbread houses! Chloe took the decorating VERY seriously, but Samantha was more interested in finding out how much she could eat! Emily out-did herself again and won the prize for most creative and coolest house on the block.
Christmas Morning!!!! Chloe was SOOOO excited to see all the presents under the tree from the top of the stairs. What was most fun for me was seeing Chloe discover that Santa had arrived and eaten the cupcake left out for him to eat. He even left a little thank you note for her. 🙂 It was really sweet how she asked each person to read the note aloud to her as they woke up and walked into the kitchen.
Chloe & Samantha each got a pair of cowboy boots for Christmas..Samantha loved them so much that after I changed a diaper she took off with them and went straight to the playroom to hide out from me. It lasted a little while, until she found some fancy heels in her new dress-up toy chest. She promptly kicked off those boots and started prancing around in the heels. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
