Christmas Day 2008

So, normally I would not share this picture with anyone outside of the family, but so many of you love Magdalena that I could not withhold it from you. This is our family on Christmas morning. Magdalena woke up and spent some time with us in our bed, her favorite spot. We had a lovely conversation.

That face says "please stop taking pictures of me...haven't I already proven myself to be a miracle?". Those blue eyes just keep us drawn to her.

Santa came! Look at those presents! Magdalena was obviously the best child this past year!

Mimi and Papa go to all the houses on Christmas morning to watch their grandkids open their presents. Here Mimi is reading a book to Magdalena. It is one with bright colors and contains certain textures.

She has not let go of that balloon, yet! That must have been her favorite gift!
Our family at Mimi and Papa's house before celebrating Christmas with my family.

Mimi has a stocking for each grandchild at her house, but couldn't find the perfect one for Landon (born in April) and Magdalena this year. Emma wanted to be sure that she got one. This is a stocking that she made at school. Mimi worked to squeeze a present in there, which happened to be Magdalena's favorite, Mylacon drops.


  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love the pictures. Especially your family photo, family of 3!

  2. Love the picture of you all relaxing in bed. We also do that in our house. We now have 3 sons; luckily a king size bed. Those are some of the most memorable times. I'm so happy you had a great holiday with your precious little girl!

  3. Sweet pictures and I am so glad you shared them with us. I love the "bed scene" of the three of you. It brings back so many memories to this mother of twins.:) Magdalena is an amazing little miracle and I just love watching her grow with you two!!
    Have a blessed day.

    Love and Hugs, Laurie in Ca.

  8. HA! That picture that you normally wouldn't share? That's the best one I think I've ever seen of y'all -- including the professionals, which are gorgeous. But I love the pic of y'all just being y'all...

  9. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. Magdalena has been such a blessing to us all... she is truly a gift from God. She has touched my life more than you will know...


I love to hear from you!
