We did indeed have a white Christmas - just the perfect kind, too, because it was really snowy and beautiful, but not icy for driving. That was so nice.
We visited Aunt Ashley and Uncle Adam over at Ashley's mom's house in Bothell. That was a lot of fun - her mom and sister were pretty excited to see Joshua, but their little dog was not pleased that Joshy was getting all the attention.
We went and visited the Averys - they were my second family all throughout elementary school - the first picture is with Laura (we spent pretty much every waking second together for about 8 years!) and the second picture is Linda - Laura's mom.Joshua and Dad had a lot of good times together - this was one of my favorite times because my darling baby distracted my dad so much that I was able to win at Settlers!
Isn't it really the little things that babies love the most? He did indeed love all of the gifts he got this year, but at this point, none of them have been quite as captivating as this blue curly ribbon was.
We went and visited Dorothy and her family - another wonderful group of people who I spent a ton of time with in my elementary school years! Joshua had a lot of fun with them!
Joshua sure loves his grandma! They had a whole lot of time together which was really special. This is one of my favorite pictures because Joshy was blowing raspberries on my mom's face and I haven't seen her laugh that hard in a very long time!
It was a wonderful and beautiful Christmas, and I'm sad that it is over, but it is nice to return to our home and our routine.
