gunter christmas and walker christmas

On December 27, we headed to my Uncle Jim and Aunt Tammy's for Christmas in Ft. Payne.

Ama-Watts got to meet Ellie Parker, Morgan, Megan, Weston, Uncle Jim and Aunt Tammy all for the very first time...

EP, Uncle Jim and Wattsie had some quiet time in the living room watching football and reading books...

And of course, Mumsy rocked and rocked while Wattsie slept...a lot!

For as long as I can remember since I was pregnant, Ellie has asked to be able to hold and feed Ama. I made sure we followed through on my promise!

Aunt Morgan is the best at holding babies. Wattsie loved her to death!

This makes my heart smile in every single way. I love my family.

Wattsie also loves, loves, loves her Great! They sat and rocked a long time.

We had such a great time at my aunt and uncle's house. We love going over there. I am so thankful for such a great family. My heart just breaks that we aren't able to see them more often.

The next day after that, we went to my dad and stepmom's house. We had a relaxing lunch and afternoon over there.

(Again, I could kick myself for not making more photos...)

Mat and Sawyer...

It seems like AWA slept so much during Christmas (which is hilarious, because she never sleeps now!)...

Celebrating Christmas with our new little addition was such a blessing this year. We loved having Ama-Watts with us, and we loved introducing her to family and friends in Alabama. We can't wait until next year when Christmas comes again, and we'll be able to take her more places...and she might even get to meet Santa Claus! I know she'll be so excited about that.

More than that, though, Mat and I can't wait to teach our daughter about the true meaning of Christmas and what it means to us as Christians. God, help us to be faithful to You in that!

We are beyond blessed, and this Christmas was just another season for us to thank the Lord for His many blessings in our lives!
