Today Charlie and Lily celebrate their first Christmas! We'll have a huge holiday update coming soon, but right now we are just soaking in the moments and enjoying the fact that this year we are celebrating Christmas with two beautiful babies. This past year was long, hard and painful - it often felt as if we'd never reach this point, but it was worth each and every step because it brought us here. This year we learned the true meaning of not only love and family, but also of friendship. Thank you to each and every one of you for helping us reach today. We wish you a very, very merry Christmas. Hug your children, tell your families how much you love them, laugh, share and make tons of memories - we plan on doing it all!
The pictures in this post are outtakes from our Christmas card photo shoot attempts. We did four different photo shoots and took at least 100 pictures.
This is the picture we finally went with for the cards. Merry Christmas!
