Pa's Airplane

While we were home in PTC Tucker had a chance to fly in Grandpa's plane! :) He LOVED it! He was a little nervous at first and he wouldn't wear the headphones but he warmed up and it was all good! 

3 generations

Uncle B and Grandpa! 

He doesn't look very happy but he was enjoying it!

What a special day for TJH! I'm so glad he got a chance to go up in Grandpa's plane. Every time he hears a plane outside he says airplane...pa! :)

EKH & OCH Week 17

Dear Emma Kate and Olivia Cay,

What a magical week! Your very first Christmas! :) 

The week started out with last minute Christmas preparations...and you girls of course had to be dressed for it! :) You watched Daddy wrap presents and Mommy bake cookies!

You girls looked so cute in your oneies from M! 

Tuesday was your first Christmas Eve! You girls had a great day of good naps in between the fun! We baked Nana's butter cookies and played at the house! Then we headed to Christmas Eve service at church...you girls did excellent! There was no childcare so you girls stayed with us and we sat in the back.

You girls had your usual play time and a little bit tummy time!

Wednesday was Christmas! And Olivia...I didn't get one picture of you...I'm so sad about this...every time we did stuff with the camera you were asleep. But you had a great Christmas! We all did...and it was so special having you girls apart of our day! 

Thursday we headed to PTC for some fun! 
You girls did great in the car!

As soon as we got to PTC we had lunch and great visits with some of Mommy and Daddy's friends! 

Wearing your big bows!

Olivia, your cousin A LOVED playing with you!

EK you love rocking in Grandpa's big chair!

Friday night we had "Christmas" dinner with Great Grandma H!

Saturday we just hung out at G's house and snuggled a lot...it was a super rainy day. 

Sunday was FILLED with lots of fun! 

B and her sweet daughter C came to visit us and meet your girls. EK you loved when B was holding you...you were getting tired when we took the pic. 

Mommy was SO glad to see B and C...and you girls loved meeting them too! 

Then R and her mom came by to meet you girls...and brought you a sweet gift!

Then we headed over to the B's house...these are very special friends of Mommy and Daddy. Their daughter LK was a flower girl in our wedding. :)

On the way there Tucker was holding your hand Olivia. :) He sure does love you girls!

LK holding EK :)

EK you loved being held by R and you fell asleep on A for a while. :)

We had a great visit and they loved meeting you girls! 

Then we later on Sunday evening we headed to Atlanta for a fun night of lights! You girls did good...it was pretty cold. We bundled you up good. :) 

When we got home it was late but TJH wanted to love on you girls!

O my what a wonderful week! Your first Christmas Eve and Christmas...SO special! :) We are so blessed to have you girls apart of the holidays this year! 

We love you girls SO much!

Christmas Day 2013

What a day! Merry Christmas for sure! 

We had a great day...filled with lots of love and excitement!

I thought last years Christmas was the best...no this year topped last years! TJH made our Christmas SO special and fun!! 

We don't do a ton of presents because really that's not what it's all about...we like the whole 3 gift thing...like the 3 wise men. Tucker was so into unwrapping this year that he would help everyone unwrap and was so sweet about it. He LOVED LOVED what Santa brought him! :) 

Curious George, Curious George cup and Curious George book...soccer ball, and a mini tool kit. 

Ek waiting for the action to begin! :) 

**Disclamer: We have no pictures of Olivia...I feel awful...she was asleep every time we did anything with the camera...she was all dressed up and all...but every time the action started she was upstairs napping. :( She had a great first Christmas! 

He was checking out his feet  :)


Showing his sister what he got! :)


Resting after opening presents :)

Lucy got her Christmas bone!

Table set for lunch with the Mr.'s parents...they came to our house about 2pm and we spent the rest of the day with them.

G and Grandpa spoiled all three of our kiddos...such wonderful gifts for them. TJH LOVED his Cat construction trucks and train! And the girls will be styling' in their SUPER cute clothes and very special pearl necklaces and earrings! And they spoiled the Mr. and I too! :)

We had a wonderful Christmas with our little family at home...right where it should be! The girls and TJH were fast asleep at 7pm...no fighting bedtime at all...they were all so pooped from all the fun! 

I can't imagine how amazing next Christmas will be with TJH being 2 1/2 and the girls being 15 months old! :) 

I am so blessed to have had such a wonderful Christmas this year with my family!
