Natalie following along with the Christmas story in her new Bible.
It was such a relaxing day. I can't remember another Christmas that was quite this low-key. I still made monkey bread (but a grain-free version for Natalie's sake) and we had a good dinner, but other than that, we ignored the mess and just relaxed.
A few weeks before Christmas, we decided we wanted to make Christmas cards this year, since we'd moved away and had several family and friends back home we'd like to send one to. I had a great idea for an outdoor photo shoot, but it was raining! Bummer. So we adapted and did it inside and they still turned out pretty cute :)
This was our card pic:
And now on to New Year's!! I'd like to make the New Year special for the kids somehow ... not by letting them stay up late, ha! But, in some other way and I'm not really sure how to do that. Any thoughts or ideas??
