Here is our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in pictures...
We started with Christmas Eve at Wes & Sarah's house (with Grandpa and Grammy Maureen), followed by Christmas Eve dinner and presents at Nana's house (and Lucy's new kitchen - yay!). Then Christmas morning at our house, then Great-Grandma's house for Christmas dinner, then back to Grandpa and Grammy Maureen's house ... phew! What a weekend!
(Just had to explain .. this is what happened when Daddy started loading up the kitchen into our car to take it home. She did NOT like that part! She didn't understand it was coming with us ... Jeff had to explain that she could take it home to play with Joy, and then she was OK.:-)
This dress was to-die-for adorable ... at least I thought so! She looked so beautiful!
Her hair was extra-cooperative for Christmas day, too - all the curls seemed to agree with each other just for this special day.
*And by the way ... I had several people ask me if I curl her hair. The answer to that is no - followed by my own question: How the heck would I curl a two-year-old's hair, exactly? I'm picturing her running circles around me while I chase her around with a curling iron. Yikes. That would be scary.
Although, come to think of it, there are those pink spongey curlers my mom used to put in our hair ... do they still have those? Somehow, I can't quite see Lucy sitting still for that whole process either though. It is a challenge to get one rubber band in it to keep it out of her eyes every day! :)~
OK ... back to the pictures...(sorry, just had to have that conversation with myself).
This chair Lucy is climbing on was one my Grandma bought when Uncle Ralph (her oldest) was a baby. She was so tickled that Lucy could sit in it at the dinner table. :-)
One of my favorite pictures of the day - Lucy with Aunt "Sephi".
I am convinced that when Scott sees a camera, he just closes his eyes until everyone is done taking pictures. Grrr....
And here is another favorite photo from the day ... Christmas wears a person out! :-)
