As I'm slowly working my way through my December photos, we are inching toward Christmas. The weekend before Christmas, we went to Virginia to hang out with the family and have a first Christmas celebration. I have to say, I loved it. I loved being home with the children for the actual Christmas, but I also loved spreading Christmas out over a couple of weeks ... the toys don't get so overwhelming and actually have a chance to become favorites before the next set of new toys arrives. Plus, (and this goes without saying) it is always great to see everyone and hang out!
