Christmas blur

Wow, it's almost New Years! Where did the time go? I think the older we get, the faster Christmas passes. It used to be this endless holiday of toys and fun, now its all I can do to even remember it as it flies by and waves! ha. It just reminds me to treasure each moment that much more.

Christmas passed us by this year in a twinkly blur of colored lights, chocolate cookies, red bows and afternoon naps. Overall, we had a lovely holiday and I hope you did too. It was extra special for us this year because of Audrey. We had a blast opening her gifts with her... (and did that girl rack up or what!! Grandmas don't spoil grandbabies, no.....never.....haha. Okay, so maybe Mommy and Daddy got her a FEW things too. :: wink ::)

My husband got me a beautiful silver ring with Audrey's ruby birthstone in it. Probably my favorite gift because of the meaning behind it! Did you get or give anything this year with a special meaning? Share in the comments section!

And in the meantime, here are just a few pics of Audrey's first Christmas. (trust me, there's probably a hundred more.)

Best gift I got: a picture book of my dog and me growing up together (she passed away this summer). I cried my eyes out and couldn't look at it for a while!!

Best gift I gave: This is a tie- either the blanket I made my aunt or the TSO tickets I organized my family to buy for my parents. :]

Merry Christmas!

She is just too precious! I love to see all of your new pictures of her! :) I got a new nativity set from my sister and I was so excited b/c I didn't have one! I love it! I want to keep it out all year long! :)

Awesome pics, Betsy. I love the one of her in bed in the morning. It's such a fun age, and it only gets better.
