Before Christmas, Linds and I let the big girls do another craft. They made gingerbread ladies with a kit from Trader Joe's. It was a bit simpler and definitely less involved than our ornaments. They loved it.
On Christmas Eve we celebrated with my mom's side of the family at her parents' home with our traditional dinner complete with peppermint parfaits.
Wish you could see sweet Ansley's face, but I like this family shot nonetheless.
Sweet sister shot.
That night Santa and his helper got to work!

Bathtime Belle was a major hit, and Addison hasn't quite figured out that she's just supposed to be a bath toy.
Another hit: Princess and the Frog big girl panties! Pants on the ground.
Santa loves babies too!
