Christmas Eve Traditions

Russ and I are very lucky with our families Christmas traditions. My family has more Christmas eve traditions and Russ's does more on Christmas day. So we don't have to be running around trying to get a little of both in.
Halle opening her baby doll from Grammy and Grandpa! Russ couldn't get that thing open fast enough, Halle really needs to learn some patience! I wonder where she gets that from?

Christmas PJ tradition. My Mom always got us new jammie's for Christmas and we would always want to wear them before Christmas, but she would never let us. They all look so cute, even though we couldn't get the babies to hold still.I love Christmastime! I think it is so magical, and it is just getting more fun and excited with my little Hals. She liked Christmas because she got her new baby dolls. We spent the night at my parents and opened presents in the morning.

I was lucky to get this shot of Halle, she was walking that baby in her new stroller all over the place, she wouldn't stop for a picture! She is such a good mommy!
Daddy making Halle laugh!

This was pretty funny, Lani and I got "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" (harry potter stuff, yeah we are nerds!) and . . .Russ and Kevin got "The Dark Night" on DVD. They were making fun of us in this picture if you can't tell.I used a different camera at Russ's parents house, and I don't know where my cord is, so I will be posting those later.

P.S. Halle is doing better and we are just hanging in there until she gets all the way better.

Poor miss Halle...hopefully she is feeling better so you can have your sweet baby girl back. It's so sad when they are miserable and can't tell you what's wrong! love your Christmas pics! So fun! Happy New Year!!!

I also love the picture of Russ making fun of you. He captured you perfectly!

I'm so glad we got to hang out over the holidays! It's always so fun to see you!

Oh don't you just love having sisters? too fun. So sorry to hear about your ER visit, I know how awful that is. I always leave for the IVs as well. It's just too much.

It's about time I get to see pics of lani and her lil' belly (b/c we all know she doesn't update her blog too often...ever!) I laughed really hard when I saw the pic of you and lani with your books and then even harder when I saw that Russ had the same expression as you. I didn't realize at first that they were making fun of you guys I just thought it was his natural look...hahaha!
