What a Difference a Year Makes!

Christmas 2009... LO was almost 2 1/2 and Chase was 2 months old!

Christmas 2010... LO is almost 3 1/2 and Chase is 14 months old. Not sure how old Santa is. ;)

For the record, I totally love this classic photo. LO smiling happily and Chase flipping out in a major way. The photographer kept trying to get Chase to smile, had me pick him up, give him a paci, etc. to calm him down so we could get a good pic. Finally, I asked if I could please just get one of those "classic" Santa pics, then threw Chase on Santa's lap and jumped out of the way. I'm not sure what happened when he hit the 1-year-old mark, but man is he ever moody! Most days he's all smiles if he so much as even thinks there's a camera in the room. Now there's just no telling what will flip his switch!

I'm so very happy and so very blessed to see my beautiful children together and to have the joy of celebrating the Christmas season with my wonderful family! God has been so good to us and we are truly grateful for His hand on our lives.


  1. lol - that is totally a classic Santa picture! LO looks so cute and innocent and Chase's sweater vest is too much. And that's actually a really good Santa!

  2. Aww! Look how big they have gotten over the last year! Aly's Santa picture looks something like Chase too. ;)
