December 2012

I finally did it... I printed out our blog! We have FINALLY made it into a book. December was such a fun month for us. I know that every.single.picture comes from Mark and Mallory, but I plan on making more books from blog again someday so I'd like to have these pictures for our record. Craig's semester ended mid-December and starts again January 22, so we've had such a relaxing break! Our highlight, ofcourse, was CALIFORNIA. I'll let the pictures do the talking...
Mallory was so sweet to cuddle with my boys all break! Eli was sick for a good 2-3 days after Christmas with a CONSTANT fever, and she sat for hours(literally) in the chair with him and let him play on her phone. Thanks Mal!
One of the highlights of Eli's trip? Watching recorded videos of himself with Aunties Paige and Mal and Uncle Mark!
This picture just makes me so happy.
Who needs to take videos when uncle Mark is taking them?!

Before the presents were opened...

and after!
Uncle Mark showing Eli how to play with his new puppets

We were able to take a short trip to Napa. My goodness, the older I get the more I appreciate how pretty it is! I love this place for the memories, good times, and family!

On their way to Aunt Cathy and Uncle Mike's!
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!


  1. I can't believe how much Owen looks like Eli!!! Looks like your vacation was super fun! Where did you print your blog?

  2. Are you happy with your book?? We are going to do it too. I LOVE the picture of your dad and Eli looking at the pictures. It makes me so happy. I kind of want that picture for myself haha. And of course I'm totally jealous of Napa. Should we live there one day??
