Christmas 2012

ImageThis year we had friends from Amsterdam join us for the festivities, Dave and his 3-year-old daughter Annika. Phoebe loved having a “big” friend to play with (most of the time!) and often they ended up with matching outfits. Guess who lives in Europe and shops at H&M…?

On Christmas Eve, we went to the candlelight service at Rome Baptist Church, where we (try to) regularly attend during the rest of the year. Goldfish crackers, raisins and even chocolates couldn’t sustain the under-four crew though. Paul ended up in the foyer with all three of them while Dave and I enjoyed the second half of the service.

Christmas Day was smoother–just breakfast, presents and eventually…

    June 1 is the official day, one day after Phoebe’s birthday! Sadly I was only about one minute pregnant in those photos you saw. That’s called my post-Estelle physique in a bathing suit! Ha. Next time I’ll try to trim down a little better. Wish us luck…all around!
