This post is dedicated to my grandmother, Dorothy Smith. Today is the one-year anniversary of when she went to be with her Lord. Miss you, Grandma. Thanks for looking down on us.
It's been a while since I've posted and a lot has happened. I've been sick with ear/sinus infections, Emma started day care today, and we had Grandpa and Nana for a visit! But most importantly, Emma had her first Christmas AND was baptized. Everything was wonderful. We spent the first part of the day with Aunt Cyndi and Uncle Josh in Raleigh. Emma (and we) received lots of fun toys. Then we went to Maw-Maw and Paw-Paw's house for dinner and more great gifts. Below are lots of photos to help explain the past week or so.
Here's Emma all dressed up for Christmas Eve service at church. Thanks to Kaycee at PrissyMiss Boutique and Life As A Mom at 21 for the headband!
Our family Christmas picture. Emma was clearly not feeling the camera.
Here's Emma looking at one of her new books she got for Christmas!
Here's what Emma gave her mommy and daddy for Christmas...she HELD HER OWN BOTTLE for the first time! YAY! :)
With Aunt Amy...
Playing with my new piano from Aunt Jen, Uncle Tim, Jaden and Dillon:
Emma was baptized on Dec. 28 while all our family was in town. Emma wore a dress my grandmother made for me when I was a baby. Here we are with the Grandparents.
