MomDot Blog Party-Day 1

Today kicks off the Christmas Blog Party at MomDot! Day 1's theme is Family Holiday Pictures... so here goes:

We have four members in our family: Hubs, me, Christian, and Cullen. We'll be adding another one next April. This is from Cullen's first Christmas, in 2006.



From last year, here's Cullen terrified of the weird Santa at our HOA party:

And helping me wrap gifts (note the drool!):

Before Cullen was in the works, here's Christian after a bath, playing with her favorite Christmas gift from '05:

And my favorite Christmas yet, was 2004, when it snowed! It was called the South Texas Christmas Miracle! We got a foot at our house! It was so much fun! Here's my house under all the snow:

Christian on Christmas morning, playing with her new Sit'n'Spin.

Christian, on the 26th, when the snow started to melt. It was completely gone by the 27th. Christian still remembers. It was the one time in her life that she saw snow. Poor kid.

I love the photos! My little boy is named Callan. Pretty close to Cullen. What a cute name!

I remember that snow, I was in Texas that year visiting my family, that was before I had any children. Wow, thanks for sharing.

Jaime @ Just Add Laughter said...

LOVE the baby pics!! Love the name Cullen, too (I'm a new "Twilight" fan HAHA)

Don't be nervous about taking kids to Disney! There are lots of fun things for them to do, and a Baby Care Center in all parks for feeding and changing the baby.

If you need advice on a trip to Disneyland (in CA), let me know!

Thanks for leaving me a comment on my blog. This blog party has at least alerted me to the fact that we need new pics which is not a bad thing, right? ;) Your pictures are great. I love the one of your baby in the stocking - so cute!! Congratulations on your pregnancy, too!

What wonderful photos! I love the stocking pic. Most of our Christmas's have been white, but honestly I get sick of snow. I guess that's what happens when you see it too much.

These pictures are great, I loved them all! That stocking one was such a good idea. I totally should have done that with my first, she was very tiny at christmas time.
