Shannon Christmas and Milestones

We FINALLY got to have Christmas with the Shannons. Weather ruined the first attempt. It was a belated celebration and kudos to the Shannons (especially Ruth and Jim) for keeping the Christmas spirit (and their Christmas tree) alive until mid-January!

It was a whirlwind of a weekend but it was fun. So much fun. The boys got some fun toys and some super cute tie blankets that they now sleep with every night, Elise got some oh so sweet outfits, Tim got a remote control helicopter that he and the boys love (and if anyone is looking for hints for Tim’s birthday- batteries!) and I got two fantastically fun and hilarious board games. And that was just the beginning.

It is always fun to get together with all the Shannons. We never sleep much and we come home exhausted but it is worth it.


The hat we got Zeke was just a little to small… guess little Ezra will have to wear it when she comes. (Ezra is what I call Zeke’s pending sibling. I think it will be a girl)

and the hat that Jim and Ruth got me was just a little bit to big for Elise

Even with the late nights we always manage to make it to Jim’s church on Sunday morning. See Mom, I told you I loved the sweater and that I would wear the scarf you made!

As of this past Saturday (the 22nd) Elise is now rolling over both ways. I will get video up asap.

She is also eating sweet potatoes.

AND sleeping unswaddled!

and whenever the helicopter batteries are charging Tim and the boys now spend their time playing video games… Tim couldn’t be happier!

the boys love it too.
