This last weekend we put up our Christmas tree. Rob made a special platform that has a real mini electric train that is going around it and is surrounded by Rudolph figures he's been collecting since we got married and put it near the top of the tree, and it looks great! So, following are pictures of the tree, and also just some random pictures I thought were cute that I wanted to post as well! They aren't in any kind of an order because I'm too tired to think that much, so I'm just leaving them the way they came up! If your interested in the books by my friend Robyn, my husband just finished the third bookcover. You can see it at his blog, which I have a link to on my blog list links. He also added more of his graphic design work to showcase more of his portfolio. Check it out!
This is a top view of the platform with the train.
A view from the other side.
Another view. Notice how the Abominable is putting on the star, just like in the movie!
This was just a random picture I got of Isaac that I think is so funny! He looks so old to me in this picture, like a little boy and not my little toddler anymore!
When Eden had her surgery, my mom, brother, and sisters came to visit and brought some gifts for all the kids. Since it was right after Halloween, they had found some costumes for really cheap and bought one for each of the kids, and this cop outfit is the one they got Isaac. I think he looks so cute, and just funny in it!
Like I said, no order here, but this is a full view of the tree. As a side note, the tree originally did have ornaments all the way down, but I waited too long to get my pictures, which means I didn't take pictures the second we were done decorating, so already the kids have emptied the bottom half of the tree. At least it still has lights!!
I would like to say that my children are angels all the time, but this picture shows at least one of them does have a slightly darker side at times! Actually, EmmaLee was posing for Eden, so she wasn't actually this mad, but it makes me laugh every time I see it!!
This is the costume my mom got EmmaLee. Compared to the last picture, doesn't she look like such a sweet thing?! You'd never know it was the same girl!
I love this picture of Eden and EmmaLee! I hope they will always be close as sisters, and I love that in the last few months EmmaLee has really started interacting with Eden and Isaac so much more! I love seeing them play together!
I've posted self portraits of Eden before, and this is another one that she picked out to have me post! She calls it her big eyes picture! She just loves to see how she looks when trying out new faces and looks! I love her curiosity!
I am also excited to say that Eden gets her last cast off a week from today, next Monday!! She has had a cast on since the second week of October, so it will be almost a full two months! We are so excited to almost be through with it!!! Also, whoever sent that Christmas card to us this last week, we just wanted to thank you for it; it was very meaningful to us!
