Christmas Past ~2000

Monday, December 10, 2007

Our Christmas card this year was a birth announement!

This was the photo we included. Harry was just hours old.IMG_0009

I cannot beleive I am posting this picture~But here I am VERY pregnant picking out the Christmas tree with Will. I remember being high a top a ladder decorating it too about a week before Harry arrived!

Our outside Christmas decorations were "light" that year. We moved into this house. It was a 100 years old and it was my favorite house we have owned! This photo does not do it justice.

Harry slept through our first photo as a family of four! I know. I look tired.


Oh, Will how you LOVED your little brother. You called him"cutie."


Yes, I am in my pajamas. It's okay. I just had a baby!


Will, the proud big brother.


I do not have any photos from Christmas morning that I can find. But apparently, Will got a snow globe. I remember that he loved it. I also remember that someone (not him) broke it shortly after Christmas.IMG_0012

Me and my boys.


Aunt Susie flew in to visit this Christmas. We had Christmas dinner at Uncle Joe and Aunt Wendy's house with cousins Jamie and Olivia. The only photos I have of the beautiful dinner are adhered to the scrapbooks.

Mimi came for a few days before Christmas to help out because Mommy was very sick and so was Harry. They thought Mommy had MS. And Harry threw up constantly and had other tummy problems. Even with all of that going on, it was a blessed Christmas!

Mimi went home for Christmas but came back in January to visit with Bubba!


  1. your pjs were super cute AND your hair was cute too! Did you really just roll out of bed for those pictures? If that's what you look like not even trying (after just having a baby)-I'm going to quit posting pictures of myself! You are beautiful & so are your boys! Merry Christmas!!

  2. First of all, you look BEAUTIFUL in your pajamas! :)

    Happy Birthday Harry! What a special Christmas that was! I think it's great that you are posting all these memories from the past- it's a great way to make your blog complete!

    I left you a message- so call me when you have a chance!

    Hugs, Shana :)

  3. that will---my goodness, he's so cute i could just squeeze those precious little cheeks!
    love that old home of it!

  4. What a special Christmas!! Our boys were summer birthdays so we never had a new baby for Christmas but this christmas feels that way having Mia home. Love the pj's. Scary about the MS. That is strange. Glad things obviously turned out well.

    Christy :)
