Warning: It's a long one!
We've had a very busy holiday season and I'll be sad to see it come to an end after the new year. In the week before Christmas we did a few more projects. We started by making our first annual picture ornaments. I thought it'd be neat to document each Christmas with a personalized ornament, and what better way than to do it with a photograph? Spencer painted popsicle sticks that I glued together to make the frame. I think the ornaments turned out rather nice!

Speaking of great grandparents, the next project was for my Grandma Faye. She recently turned 80 and my aunts asked family and friends to create pages to put in a scrapbook they are making for her. The scrapbook pages are supposed to reflect on our relationship with Grams or what we feel symbolizes her. For my page I did foot prints of my kids and then made a list of 10 Wiggly Reasons We Love Grandma.

Besides the virus that so violently attacked my family (passing Spencer, thank God!!), it was a great Christmas. Spencer is at a fun age now where he is starting to understand the concept of Santa and really enjoy Christmas. I'm not sure about my boys, but this mommy is exhausted!
Here is the latest growth picture. It's hard to believe my baby is already two months old!!
