Almost a year. That's how long it's been since I've blogged. I go back and forth between documenting and recording their sweetness, and enjoying the moments WITH them, not from behind the lens. I'm going to try and balance it, because as Christmas was coming I found myself looking back at the blog from when Brant was Henry's age. There were so many things that I wrote, insignificant at the time, but now forgotten memories. I want to have that for Henry. So while the blog might not be as well written, perfectly aligned, edited photos and all, it will be perfect for our family. After all, that's why I do it.
Little Brant said today, Christmas Day, "Mom, isn't it weird how we were in school and all and then all of a sudden it's actually Christmas?!" So true little man, so true. Our fall has been a blur...Mommy had a wisdom tooth out (out of commission for 3 days prior to..), Mommy went to Costa Rica on a school trip, we all took an amazingly awesome trip to Disney, Thanskgiving, basketball, Holiday events...wow. It's suddenly Christmas!
Christmas Eve was a relaxed event around here, we had made cookies for Santa the day before (Daddy had to work the long shift!) The boys loved it, of course, and Grandma came up for some cookie fun.
|Henry began to lose interest and started to sprinkle flour on Brady. He then progressed to eating the sprinkles and colored sugar.|
|It's always special to eat off of Great Grandmother Dunny's plates.|
|Sporting the new jammies for Christmas eve!|
|Giving it a good shake!|
Sort of. Henry is still convinced that the ornaments are "ittle toys!"
|and Grandma...the Unger is strong with this one!|
