december 2014 recap.


December 2014 recap...

At about 4.5 months, Spencer started eating solids. Even though you can't tell in this photo, he actually took eating on like a champ! The kid loves food.

Kisses from my big boy in between 2 year old tantrums. It was like he knew exactly what I needed at that moment to get me through the day. Love this boy with all my heart!

Doing a little bit of Christmas shopping with mommy. He takes his job very seriously!

A hot December afternoon can only mean one thing... water play in the backyard.

Lachlan impatiently waiting for his turn at the Christmas gift exchange. Seems two year olds don't understanding taking turns when it comes to gifts... or anything for that matter, haha.

Handmade Christmas cards for Lahclan's teachers... and Target gift cards (because we all know that is what they really want!

ho ho ho.

Santa arrived with Byron's gifts a few days before Christmas so that we could celebrate with him before he headed to his Grandparent's house on Christmas Eve.

Then on Christmas Eve, Santa came again (whaaaa?) and delivered some special little gifts for the boys along with a personalized note to Lachlan and Spencer (double whaaaaa?).

I would like to say that Santa had this little letter prepared in advance, but seems he was a bit last minute and was trying to come up with something at 11pm on Christmas Eve.

Spencer slept through the initial surprise and some of the gift opening, but Lachlan was sure to give Spencer's walker a little test run. You know, just to make sure it was safe for his little brother (wink, wink).

Since we had just celebrated his 2nd birthday the month before, Lachlan was well versed on the whole "opening gifts" thing and couldn't wait to help us open presents.

When Spencer finally got up, Lachlan helped him open a few of his gifts as well.

And this walker... $10 on Gumtree (similar to Craigslist)! Looked pretty much brand spankin' new after a good wash. Yep- pretty happy with myself over this purchase. And I think Spencer was happy with his gift from Santa too!

It was a perfect, super low key, relaxed Christmas Day with my beautiful boys!

making family traditions.

Since these are some of the things we did last year around Christmas, I am going to go ahead and name them "Christmas Traditions" and call it a day.

1. The annual gift exchange with our Mum's Group

happy christmas!

I'm pretty much in love with our Christmas card this year all thanks to the family photos taken by Finer Details Photography!!!

As anyone would know, family pictures can be pretty painful. Getting the whole family together and clean and dressed in coordinating clothes and happy and smiling (I could keep going but I will stop here) can be quite the chore. Not to mention the fact that I am dealing with four boys... But Alyce at Finer Details was just awesome with the boys and keeping it low key and relaxed. I couldn't be happier with how the pictures turned out!

Here are a few of my favourites :)
