Christmas 2011

I am very very behind, obviously. The holidays were hectic and we went out of town and I have been sick...hoping to do some catching up.

Brennan had a very good Christmas this year! Even though he only asked for one small thing-a stuffed squid-he received many many many more gifts. (Notice that it's dark outside-he was up before 6am ready to see if Santa came!)

Here he is with the prized request-a stuffed squid! He was quite pleased:)

Thankfully, because Santa was a little stumped about where to find a squid-luckily Santa can do online shopping nowadays;)

Digging into his stocking...

Here he is opening presents at maw maw and paw paw's house..

and GiGi's..

and mamaw's house...

We were really really wishing that Reese and Scotlyn were right next to us opening presents. We went to visit their grave and took a little pink Christmas tree.

It was very hard to escape the fact that our tree should have held many more presents underneath and that two 17 month old little girls should have been tearing through them with their big brother. How it's not fair for a second that we have to go to a graveyard to "visit" them. It is still very unbelievable to me at times. Two very large missing pieces to our world on Christmas Day and every day.


  1. Your family pictures are beautiful though I wish they were not missing your two little girls. Glad you made it through the day. Hugs to you.

  2. i agree with the comment above. Love the pink tree.
