Despite overwhelming feelings of stress and anxiety leading up to Christmas, the day itself turned out to be joyous, relaxed, simple and meaningful. It was a day filled with delicious food (and that gorgeous Logan wine), beautiful gifts and the people we love most. I couldn't have wished for anything more for Eulalie's first Christmas....
...but it wasn't long before the festivities started to fester. Unfortunately our New Years Eve plans involve staying home and caring for a sick baby. These last few days we've all been struck with a nasty stomach virus - Lalie being the last to come down with it. Hopefully we can leave the dreaded lergy behind in 2011 and bring in the new year feeling fresh and healthy.
Do you have any exciting or not-so-exciting plans? I'd love to hear!
Wishing you all a healthy and happy New Year!
- These photos represent only half of the day(!), and only half of the gorgeous family we spent it with. Photographer got a bit lazy after lunch!
- Don't mind the wispy tree - a roadside find - what it lacked in appearance it made up for in aromatics. Paddy tells me it's all about the nostalgic pine-y freshness.
- For those who are interested, Lalie's jumpsuit is a handmade vintage number :)
