Christmas 2012

Christmas has always been such a special time for Casey and I. It's even more exciting with Harvey. This year Harvey knows Christmas. He can tell you the story of baby Jesus and he knows Santa brings him presents if he behaves. But it was really difficult for him to understand the difference between Christmas time (the decorations and the music and parties and seeing lights and shopping and wrapping and lots of cookies) and the actual day of Christmas when Santa comes. These are some of our Christmas time photos.

Our Tree

One of our favorites. We like the hand made look. Felt, wood, metal

Love the angel! Casey and I got her our first Christmas together.

Harvey's Christmas village. I let him play with this set but when the people break we toss them out.

Mom and I took Harvey to the Christmas Tree lot to look at trees and get some pictures. They had names for each tree along with the price on the tags. He had fun finding the tags and having us tell him the tree's name.

This was our Christmas card photo. The last shot of the day.

Finding a tag.

We've been to Lewis Ginter's Celebration in Lights the past few years. This was the first year that Casey was able to come with us. Sarah, my sister came too. It was beautiful as always.

In the tunnel at the Children's garden.

Through the dragon's belly!

The night before Christmas and too excited to sit still for a proper photo.

Cookies and milk for Santa and carrots and water for the reindeer.

And he did come...with a Leap Pad 2 (aka ipad for kids)
