Christmas is on its way...

Too Cute for words!

I can't believe it is only 2 weeks until Christmas!! Time is flying by. Things are still going extremely well and Emma is getting really excited about Christmas. I think Chris and I may be even more excited than the kids! We can't wait for Christmas morning. Chris bought a "Polar Express" train set for Lucas and he is busy mounting the tracks to a board and adding Astro turf, trees, and other cool things to make it a dream come true for Lucas. He loves trains and he is going to go nuts when he sees it!! Of course the train set is "officially" for Lucas but I suspect that it is just as much for Chris. He never had a train set growing up so he's living out his fantasy under the guise of a Christmas gift for his son:). I can't really blame him...the dollhouse Emma is getting is really a 38 year old wish fulfilled for her mama!!

We spent the weekend at the beach recently with my girlfriends. The kids had a great time walking on the beach and looking at the hundreds of jellyfish washed ashore by the tide. It was so nice to relax and spend time with good friends. Thanks Ya Ya's!!!

We took our annual family Christmas photos in front of our tree, for our Christmas cards. As in years passed, it took approximately 30 photos to come up with a few that all of us are smiling in. I am a perfectionist so I'm always wanting "just one more" to capture the perfect photo. I had to bribe the kids with "just 2 more shots then we can take a silly one". I've attached the results of our silly poses.

Emma is continuing to adjust well with no major issues. She's lost 3 teeth since we brought her home (one today) and she is really liking the whole tooth fairy thing. She looks so cute smiling with a missing front tooth.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!!
