First Haircuts & a Look at our Christmas(es)

Wednesday, December 28, 2011
It's funny to say that my five year old daughter and 21 month old son got their first hair cuts in the same week! Emma has very long, beautiful hair and we finally went yesterday for her first haircut - just a trim, though to clean up her ends! Aaron has beautiful curls and I've been dodging my husband's insistence for about a year to cut it! I just loved his curls, even though it was wild! But I finally gave in and took him for his first haircut last Thursday.  I didn't cut it extremely short - just gave him a regular little boy's haircut.
They were both so good the whole time, too! I think Aaron might not have been so still had they used clippers on him, though!

I still have lots of pictures from Christmas to go through and upload, but wanted to share this family shot...and a couple others from all our celebrating!
And Aaron checking out his new train set - which he loves! He wasn't quite awake yet!
Emma got a new bike from Santa - the very one she asked for, imagine that! Santa is pretty good!
We've had a great Christmas, but it still isn't over actually! We still have more festivities tomorrow at my sister's house! We started the Wednesday before Christmas with my parents - they had been keeping Aaron for a couple days while my babysitter was on vacation so when we picked him up we exchanged gifts with them. Then we celebrated with Michael's parents on Christmas Eve and had a surprise visit from Santa!!! (My two still aren't real sure how they feel about Santa in person)
Aaron & his cutie cousin chilling - I think he is eyeing her baby doll! (I though this was too cute! LOL)
Then Christmas Day my parents came over for lunch and that evening we went to Michael's grandparents' house. The day after Christmas we went next door to celebrate with friends...our friends that moved to Colorado are in town this week so it was great to see them and their new baby girl, too!
 We always have a lot of fun when we get together!

Today I have to make a big pot of deer chili to take to my sister's house tomorrow. I've been catching up on laundry this week while I'm off and getting my kitchen back in order, but otherwise we (me and the kiddos) are having a true staycation! Enjoying some chill time and not much else!
