Christmas Fun!

Christmas day was a wonderful day of celebration with the family! Here are some pics of the fun that we shared together.

Makenna celebrating her very first Christmas and looking just about as cute as they come!!

Josh sharing some quiet time with his baby sister.

Justin excited about his new West49 shirt.

Laken loving her baby sister.

Noah, cute as he can be!

Rebecca and Molly; cousins who may not live close to one another but are so very close anyway. Molly is my cousin Bridget's daughter and she and I love that the girls are close, just as she and I are!

Dave and Trish enjoying their first Christmas together as husband and wife.

Mom 'encouraging' Dave to pose in a picture with her! :o)

Dad, enjoying sitting back and passing down the tradition of handing out gifts to his son. Dave did a great job which isn't easy with 12 excited people gathered around the tree.

Makenna enjoying a snuggle and nap with her other Grandpa.

Me opening a gift that will hold precious documents. It's a fireproof case that I will store such documents as Hannah's original adoption papers, Passports, etc. Something I've wanted for a while but just never purchased for myself.

Dave posing with the two pizza stones he received. Guess with a family of 7 he could use 2!
I hope all of you shared a wonderful Christmas! I couldn't help but think often over the day of how wonderfully different Christmas is going to be next year when Hannah is HOME!!!


  1. Looks like you had a wonderful Makenna is adorable...and getting so big!!

    It is exciting to think that next year you will be celebrating Hannah's first Christmas with you...keep the faith my friend!!

    Happy Holidays!


  2. What a wonderful Christmas time!

    We wanted to get one of those safes too.

    I got 3 digital frames...I can relate to your bro.

    Keep smilin!

  3. Merry Christmas Catherine!

    I'm catching up on my blog reading tonight and I was thrilled to read that you'll meet Hannah in 2009! So much to look forward to, congratulations!


  4. What a wonderful Christmas! You have a beautiful family Catherine! Happy New Year :O)

  5. Family Christmas fun!

    Makenna is so gorgeous! Be great to see Hannah hangin' with the rellies next year!

  6. Great pictures of your family Cathy! Nice to take a peek in and share in your Christmas activities!

    Happy New Year,
    Love & prayers,

  7. Looks like Christmas was a great time! It's fun to pass along traditions. We pick a different "Santa" to hand out presents every year... but Santa has to wear the Santa hat... and be taught to hand our presents slow enough that everyone can see what everyone else has... Letting the adults do this would kinda eliminate the chaos we usually have!
    Merry Christmas,

  8. I'm so glad you had a nice Christmas with family. And can you believe we received a fire-proof safe, too?!?!! We already have one, but word got out that it was full. We need another one!

  9. Such great pictures.
    Is your fire proof box also flood proof....a girl speaking from experience of loosing all her paperwork in a basement flood!

  11. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Wishing you a Happy New Year and all your heart desires!
