It is by far my favorite time of year. Mainly because the holiday's consist of lots of time spent with family. I love any day that I can spend with my family, so a couple months dedicated to dinners, parties and get-together's is my idea of perfection.
After Thanksgiving, a little less than a week later, we finally were all home together to put up our tree. This time of year is magical in and of itself, but adding kids into the mix, amplifies it tenfold. Jaiya lights up at the thought of wrapping presents, making cookies, looking for her elf, Tiara, and decorating the house and tree. And, of course, having a second baby in the family, was the icing on the cake. We are so happy with the little family we've created.
This year, with our basement nearly finished, we put our tree downstairs. Having no furniture allowed us to leave the living room empty so Santa could fit everything in there perfectly.
Trying cereal for the first time. Despite this cute smile, he hated it. Gagged terribly.
