An Olive Christmas

Last Christmas when our youngest daughter Emily was pregnant, I 'called dibs' on having her and Allan and the new baby at our home for Christmas this year.  Lloyd and I had been looking forward to it every since she joined our family on April 15.

I took many, many pictures of her experiencing her first Christmas and will really enjoy putting them into a scrapbook for her.

Modelling one of her new hats

Instead of crawling forward, she propels herself backwards.
Won't be long before she's up and running.

All dressed up for a winter outing

Christmas dinner with Mike's family.  The kids were sitting
at a separate table, except for Olive in a highchair back in the corner.

Papa couldn't get enough of his littlest grandchild.

And neither could Grammie.  Lunch at Five Guys.

Typing her letter to Santa???
 There's nothing like kids in the home at Christmas, especially ones as happy and adorable as little Olive Rosemarie.  She really made Christmas a special treat for us this year.
