Christmas morning

for the past 3 years, we've spent the night at Sabe's parents' home in MD, just about 10 miles from home.  they have this great big, old house that is so fun to spend Christmas at.  The kids have to wait at the top of the big staircase until everyone wakes up before they can go see what Santa brought.  Its painful, but oh well.  This year was so fun because Isabella was so full of expression and Olivia and Jaxon knew exactly what they wanted.  Surprisingly, neither one of them found any coal in their stocking. :)

isabella turns 2!

so, izzy helped me make her cake as you can see. i hope nobody see this that actually ate the cake---just kidding. as much as a 2-year old know its her birthday, izzy was very excited and grasped a little of the concept. i really can't believe she is 2. everytime she falls asleep in my arms, i am able to get a glimpse of the time she was just a little baby. i am so grateful i have so many images of her first days and months because it goes by so fast. she will definitely always be the baby (and princess) of the family!
