Four years ago Tom and I celebrated Christmas with the greatest gift we could ever receive -- Ella and Zoe!! And since then each holiday has been full of much laughter, lots of joy and just plain old fun. We are so thankful for our family and friends, and our little gifts that continue to give so much. Our hearts are truly full
as we celebrate this Christmas Season.
~ 1st Christmas ~
Ella and Zoe -- Our Best Presents Ever.
~ First Christmas with the Rupprechts ~
Grandpa Everett holding Zoe, Cousin Lauren
and Cousin Erin holding Ella.
Grandma Della Snuggling with Zoe.
Grandma Della holding Zoe, Aunt Mary
and Aunt Jayne Feeding Ella.
~ Second Christmas ~
Loving the tree and ornaments.
Seriously, my heart still melts to see this photo and remember how much they loved to hug each other, even when they were so little.
This photo just cracks me up, it's like Zoe is whispering to Ella
'who is that kid next to me?' (it's their cousin Connor).
~ Third Christmas~
Ella and Zoe got Tom juggling balls
and they were so excited to tell him all about them : )
~ Third Christmas with the Rupprechts ~
Opening gifts . . .
. . . and Cuddling with Grandma Della the next morning.
More pics to come of THIS year's Christmas Celebrations -- we're hopefully heading out to see my side of the family later today (if the snowy roads allow us to travel), and then we're off to see Tom's side of the family tomorrow. Right now the girls are playing with some of their new toys and I need to start getting ready for the day . . . .
Merry, Merry Christmas!!
