Christmas Pictures/Update

I know it's a little late for Christmas pictures, but this is the first chance I've had to blog in FOREVER! lol And guess what I have recent pictures of? hahaha

Robby in his Daddy's arms

Robby on Mommy's shoulder - 3 weeks & 1 day old (This is currently my favorite photo of him)

Our little Christmas present - Desse put the bow on his head, and I couldn't resist taking a picture

Marshie sitting in front of the tree and presents - she insisted on wearing the dress she had just unwrapped

Frankie in Desse's santa hat - I caught this shot mid-step, but it makes it look like he's doing some sort of jig lol

Frances and Mommy (yes, the girls have matching dresses now lol)

Frances with her new dolly, Kit

Last, but not least, our family photo. (from l-r 1st row Michelle-Steven's girlfriend, Steven, Gwen holding Frances Audrey, Grandma Frances, and Isaac. 2nd row Rob holding Frankie, Me holding Marshie, Alex-Desse's girlfriend- cradling Robby and, of course, Desse hiding behind her.)

We had a very joyful Christmas. Steven and Michelle came up from Houston on Christmas night. The kids (of ALL ages) really enjoyed the small gifts that they received. Frankie and Marshie were most interested in the idea of giving and receiving gifts, but of course they tired easily. We had a lovely Christmas dinner together in the afternoon. All in all, our day was fill with much love and laughter.

The following day, Friday, we all started coming down with a stomach virus - one that many of us and our friends are really just starting to recover from. Even with sick kids, a sick husband and friends, I will still say that this Christmas was much blessed. I hope everyone else had such a wonderful time with family and/or friends.

Lots of love for the holidays -------
