That Christmas Day 2012

Then there was Christmas. It was filled with fabulous eats, family, laughter, and baby. Love. Grandma bought Santi his Christmas tux, it cost $4,000 and had to be tailored to fit his round tummy. He thinks he looks sharp. We agree. It didn't cost $4,000. It wasn't tailored. But oh-my-cuteness!

Green smoothies to start the day (1 banana, 4 kale leaves, 1 lemon, 1 orange, 1 handful broccoli, 3/4 cup pineapple, ginger knob, water, ice!), ham, apple yam strata, apple pumpkin rice, kale salad with cashew dressing, kale salad with apple n' balsamic olive oil dressing, baked stuffed apples (Oh She Glows' recipe), more no-bake pumpkin pie, joy.

great grandma happiness!

my papa!

Picture time?

 Much like Christmas Eve, Santi was a little over-stimulated and needed longer naps on this particular day. So at the end of the evening, he wasn't really up for a family picture. Instead of throwing in the towel and accepting the sad fact that there would not be a happy grin from our babe in the group photo, we decided to play along with the 3 month old and copy his every emotion for photo #2. I think it's a real gem. I want to make a poster out of this next picture.

Christmas is beautiful.  I much enjoyed receiving socks and pajamas this year. I absolutely feel blessed to be part of this family. I want more babies.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. James 1:17
