Ellie June's Blessing Day

On Sunday December 28, 2008 we were able to bless our fifth baby she was named for her Great Grandmother Donna June Andrew. Unfortunatly Aubree got really sick the night before the blessing so we had to do the blessing and leave quickly. We were fortunate though in that everyone we wanted in the circle was able to be there and almost all of our families were there. I hope you enjoy the pictures below in both posts.

Ellie June's Blessing Day

Christmas at the Morgan's

We had a wonderful Christmas holiday with all the family coming. The kids enjoyed playing w/ their cousins and of course their Christmas gifts.

Tot Lot Christmas Party

Aubree was so excited for the Tot Lot Christmas Party she couldn't wait to see Santa. Well the idea of Santa and the reality of Santa are two entirely different things in Aubree's book. She wanted nothing to do w/ him once she saw Santa aka her dad (yes Evan revisited his role again after a few years off). I thought for sure she would feel some sort of connection...NO she wouldn't get anywhere near him w/out me. She was very happy to wave to him from the comfort of my arms.

family pictures

Family pictures this year were a little stressful. We started out going to a photo studio in which we walked out after 10 minutes on account that Aubree was rolling all over the floor crying. Since I had just spent the last two hours prior to our sitting time getting everyone ready, I wasn't going to let my efforts go to waste. So we ran home grabbed the camera, blanket and my father in law. We headed to the park and started snapping pictures here is just a sampling of what we went through to get a couple good pics. My father in law just kept snapping away he said he figured eventually he'd have to get one good one and w/ our crew that was definatly a miracle.

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone has had a safe and happy New Year. I haven't loaded my pics into the computer yet from the holidays. I will do that in the next couple of days so you can see what fun the kids had during break.
