Christmas 2012

We hosted an early Christmas at our house with my family. We had our traditional Christmas Eve appetizers and opened presents from each other that night. I started a new tradition with Ethan this year, making homemade cinnamon rolls. (they turned out great!) We have two new little cousins in the mix for Ethan this Christmas, Aiden and Eli. Anthony, Ethan and I enjoyed a quiet Christmas day just the three of us.

We are so happy and surprised to share that baby #2 will in be a girl! We feel so lucky to have this news and have loved sharing it with family and friends. I think getting the chance to have one of each an already a lucky experience, and for me having three brothers and no sisters makes having a girl that much more meaningful :)
