46: Mom tried so hard to get Christmas pictures this year. She took Isabella to 'Picture People' which ended up being a disaster! | As a last ditch effort, we took everyone outside to the shed and snapped these shots! Success!
47: Merry Christmas, 2010 With Love
48: With all of the whereabouts of the family this year, we decided to keep things very simple...home-sweet-home! On Christmas Eve we went to church and then home for the traditional crab and fettuccini dinner. The boys were in bed early and Brian and I finished up the wrapping...a much simpler year indeed! | Surprisingly, there was no 6:00am wake-up call (or earlier). Ben and Si were up waiting on the couch, and I awoke before Belle! The festivities began at around 7:30am. What fun! The boys were delighted and expressed, "This is the BEST Christmas EVER!" It really was!
