Christmas Time!

This Christmas Season felt a lot like Thanksgiving to me……minus the late night/early morning shopping that comes with Black Friday!! As I stopped to enjoy the time with family, I looked back on 2011 and saw that we had so much to be thankful for.

Evan and Jaden loved the lights of our Christmas tree. If there are fussy times ahead, we may have to unpack that tree in the summer and have Christmas in July to provide hours of entertainment gazing at the lights. They were spoiled with family holding, reading, and playing with them during Christmas and New Years.

Grandma and Grandpa Schumacher reading the Christmas story to Evan and Jaden. Evan may be more interested in that ceiling fan..... but Jaden will take notes for both of them!!

Family made the trip from South Dakota so we didn’t have to travel this year. Nathan’s parents came for a long Christmas weekend and my family came for New Year’s weekend. Also visiting were the bottle-washing fairy and baby sitters so I could sneak away to work out and shop!

Jaden getting ready for take off - 'flying baby'.....a new cure for fussiness thanks to Aunt Laurie!

Friends also made this season special with stopping by to entertain Evan and Jaden some evenings and help with their feedings. Just increasing the ratio by one more adult to baby makes a big difference!! Evan and Jaden love that one-on-one attention!

We wish your family a blessed 2012 and thanks for helping to make our 2011 so special!
