a Christmas Eve celebration!

anytime i get a chance to infuse Disney into my life, i do it!  how lucky were we to go to Downtown Disney on Christmas Eve!  Olaf's ice skating rink was just the right amount of festive and fun!  Colin may not have been super stoked on ice skating, but the girls took to it right away and enjoyed every minute. 

after a delicious family dinner at Cheesecake Factory, we had a traditional night at Grandma and Grandpa's, with musical performances by the girls:  

the nativity story, as told by the Earl Family:

and tucked everyone in, in their Christmas jammies:
Grandma and Grandpa know how to make Christmas magical!

Santa was likely very happy with his sweet treat:

happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

zoe 6 months

5 kids.  no joke.  we've spent 6 months as a family of 7!  it's hard to wrap our minds around how fast time is flying by!  thankfully little Zoe is starting to sleep better as we learn to manage her reflux issues.  the rest of the kids have just taken to her like fish to water. best siblings in the world!

(i kinda like how this picture is blurry, it really captures the happy blur of our life right now)
