Merry Christmas!!!


What a week it has been!!!  My family flew in from Hawaii last Saturday, and it has been non-stop ever since!  Grace Taylor's baptism, Grace Taylor as the Baby Jesus, Christmas Eve parties, Christmas day celebrations (both sides of the family), day after celebrations, birthday parties and more!  Many pictures to post and many things to clean up.  Overall it was the best Christmas to date, and I am so thankful for the best gift of all, Baby Jesus and my baby girl.  Rejoice and Merry Merry Christmas!

Itty Bitty Memories




Here are some pictures that our friend took of Grace Taylor when she was only 2 weeks old.  I can't believe how tiny she was!  Where does the time go???

Trip to Blowing Rock






This past weekend our little family made the trip to Blowing Rock for our third annual trip to cut down our Christmas tree.  I am not kidding when I say this was the best trip ever!  Being from Florida, I am a big sucker for snow.  I am like a little child wishing, hoping, and praying for snow every year.  This year all of my snow dances paid off, and we found ourselves in a little bit of a snow storm.  What do you call that, a blizzard?!   It was quite amazing, but I found out that while snow is beautiful it can make for quite cold weather.  T.J. was wonderful, he walked around the tree farm holding Grace in her car seat (quite awkward, and quite heavy), while I was in charge of finding our tree.  It was harder than I thought, they really all look the same when covered in snow.  Finally my sweet husband had had enough, and yelled. "Kel, pick one!!!!"  So, I pointed to the one in front of me, "This one."  We had no idea what our tree looked like.  Luckily, when we got home last night and put it up, we looked at each other and said it was the prettiest tree yet!  Oh, and I forget to mention how wonderful little Grace Taylor was.  It was frigid outside, and she was awake the whole time, happy as can be.  I knew she loved all things Christmas!!

To Pierce or Not to Pierce


That is the question!  My ears were pierced when I was a baby, as well as my sister's.  I think they look adorable on little baby girls, and I was thankful to have them done when I was young.  However, now the time has come and I am faced with the decision myself.  I always thought it would be an easy choice, but it seems far more difficult than I ever imagined.  Will it hurt her? Will she be mad at me?  Will people judge me?  Hmmm...  I guess I still have a lot to think about.

All is know is it sure would be nice for Baby Grace to have little twinkling studs in this Christmas!  Thoughts????
