I haven’t posted much this month, everyone’s so busy in December. But here, in a nutshell, was our holiday season.

I took way too many Christmas card photos. Like, about 1,000 photos.

We’re exhausted and happy here after a great Christmas. Here’s Hannah’s reaction to the elephant rocker her grandparents gave her for Christmas. Awesome little creature.

This year’s visit to Santa, which took place the weekend before last, began with tears and ended with suspicious tolerance. I’ll write more about our holiday traditions this year when I’ve got a second to catch my breath, but for now I’ll let these photos speak for themselves.

My in-laws used to get nervous that they gave me too many books as gifts, that I’d get tired of them. They have learned by now that nothing makes me happier, and they’ve joined my own family in helping me build my library every year. And this year, the selection of books I was given was pretty astoundingly good. Some of these were on my own wishlist, some of them were given with great thought and care, and one of them was a gift to myself.

Happy Holidays! I hope everyone’s Christmas was as merry as ours!

So I finally finished our new monogrammed family Christmas stockings. I started thinking about these a while back, knowing that Hannah would need one and wanting to take the opportunity to improve on our old ones with a new coordinated family set. The old ones have been great, but I’m a better sewer 4 years later. And, I can applique things.

We had a holiday party this year! We skipped last year because it was just too much with the baby on the way, but last Sunday we had a bunch of great people over for an early evening celebration. I forgot how much I missed this party. I took zero photos once the party started, which I’m horrible about every year. There’s always so much to do, so many people to talk to. Plus Hannah was up entertaining people, so at one point we had to go get her to bed.

It’s December 20th already?! How did that happen? I’m finally getting some steam back today, and I think I’m just running on adrenaline knowing there’s only 1 more day until winter break. Hannah got a second tooth last week, and as of yesterday we think she’s working on a 3rd. Plus, since the stubborn little thing will NOT eat solids, she’s starting to get extra hungry just drinking milk and formula. So, this basically means a LOT of waking up in the middle of the night this month. On top of stomach bugs and all kinds of other excitement.

I know I’ve mainly been posting about Hannah’s Firsts lately, but there have been a lot of them all at once. This one I’m actually really excited about. I’ve been working on an Advent calendar to match the ones I made for Adam and myself last year. I followed the exact same tweaked tutorial from The Purl Bee and finished hers last week.

And she has adorable taste, this was my favorite theme as well.

Yesterday I took her up to the Paramus Container Store as part of a whirlwind day visiting folks. We saw an old high school friend of mine, Ryann, who’s asked me to make a baby quilt for the little girl she’s having Christmas week. We had lunch with my mom and coffee with Kathy, and in between that Hannah was introduced to her mother’s annual holiday tradition.
