HoliDAZE 2013 & Chapter II

We had a wonderful Christmas holiday!  We spent time with both sides of the family and basically had three Christmases (Giles on the 23rd, ours on the 24th and Crocker on 25th) and it was such a nice break.  Christmas is my favorite holiday by far!  I love the smells, food, family time, gifting, and just the complete craziness of it all.  Carson is still a little unsure of it all and definitely wash not into Mr. Santa Claus (we and his cousins had to get in the Santa picture with him)...however he did love opening presents and all of his new toys!  And boy were there toys and then some!!!  Between Grammy and Gramps Giles and JJ and Grandpa Dan…the kid was left wanting for nothing!  Baby #2 was even spoiled and she doesn't arrive until May 6th!!

I made our blog into a book this year!  Chapter I or the blogs from 2011 up until Thanksgiving 2013 was a perfect Christmas gift to our family.  I plan on printing the blog off every year and now we are on Chapter II as we welcome our new baby girl to the world in May!  So excited for 2014…the best year yet!  Here is a recap of our holiday in photos...

Love this picture of Carson by Grammy's tree.  Completely mesmerized. 

Our appointment on December 27th at 20 weeks.  The doctor confirmed we are in fact having a girl and said she looks perfect!!  We are so excited!
