Our family tree

Okay so I know these pictures are well past due... but life has been crazy... here are the pictures from our family tree decorating session. We ate keator christmas cookies (a family tradition) and watched the polar express. It was fun to have the time together as a family and to really enjoy being together.

decorating the tree at christa's

Every year it is a tradition in Ryan's family that we go over to his mothers house and decorate the Christmas tree. *a little known family fact: the very first year Ryan and I dated he took me home to San Angelo for the night for this event. It was the first time that I met his mom, step dad, his sister and her soon to be husband Eric and my nieces sierra and megan. * Our families have both grown since then with the addition of new children in each family. It is so special that every year this tradition continues.

Christmas 2007

Here are some of the pictures from Christmas this year. Christmas is getting to be alot of fun with the girls getting older. Naomi told me for months " I want that for Christmas" about every toy she saw. Some of the special gifts they got were: a doll house with all the fixen's, a bike for naomi and a big red wagon for lanie, and a play house. Let's just say there were alot of presents!

All dolled up!

So here is everyone all dressed up for Christmas. The girls looked so pretty in thier dresses. They were silk gold in color with a navy and red plaid. They were hand smocked at the top. BEAUTIFUL! ( thanks renee). The girls also both wore thier turkish cartoush's from nona and papa. We were dressed to the hilt!

so silly

So this is naomi age 3 going on 25! She is such a silly girl with a huge dramatic flair. She has quite the attitude as you can see from the picture. She loves to play dress up .... hates to wear clothes .... and still LOVES her binky. What is a mother to do lol!

birthday cake

Lanies cake this year was a red velvet cake. It is the YUMMY-EST! It is a very old family reciepe that has been in my dads family forever. It is definetly a labor of love but well worth it on a special day
