We weren't so busy this month. Which really was a welcome change to things. As I mentioned in the last post we are expecting baby number 2 in May of 2013. So really, I have spent a lot of time on the sofa, and in bed. Which I know sounds great, but it does make the month of December a little more stressful. Still however, I am so grateful for a little one, and a half a little one in this house to make the holiday's so magical. I wouldn't trade our simple, unhurried holiday for anything.

I have such a good forward to the next photo....

This is us, a week later, still working with an empty tree. I got home from Utah and got the flu. It was the best week of my life....

We went shopping, which was all sorts of fun with this little stinker.

Took several spills on the concrete. This doosey was one of the worst.

We bundled up and went with some friends and the rest of Chicago to see the lights at the zoo. Not really Temple Square, but it was still fun.

Did I mention we went shopping this month? Meet Christmas present number one...

We actually got a little snow just before Christmas, and by little, I mean little. It was still snow and still magic to Elsi.

This is where we ended up on Christmas Eve. With a fever of 101, three molars coming through, and a sick, but still happy child. Dad had a little scare while Mom was out, it was almost enough to end us in an emergency room. But, due to faithful nurses that work on Christmas Eve (with their kids yelling in the background) we got things settled down and were able to make her comfortable.

Christmas day was merry and simple, and a little overwhelming for this little one.

Santa brought a new bike, with a really long handle so that this prego mommy can stand to push her through the house for hours and hours.

This baby is well loved.

Finally some time to just play!

We even got to go out for our anniversary this year. Grandma and Grandpa Bywater came and made that all possible. We loved it!
