We celebrated Christmas with my husband’s family this weekend.
Actually, they are my family now, too. And, I love that. I love how marriage unites more than just two people. It unites families, as well.
I really love how we welcomed the newest member to the family this year.
And, oh, how I love that we had our very own Santa Baby at the Christmas celebration.
Our precious Baby Garrett is truly adorable. He has the most gentle, sweet spirit. He smiles, he coos, and I am convinced that we had a little conversation at one point.
Summer and Gabriel both adored him….and, the feeling was very mutual.
Ethan kind of wondered what all of the fuss was about. So, I assured him that he is still my baby.
There is always something extra special about having a baby around for the holidays. I am so happy that Baby Garrett added that extra something magical to our Christmas celebration this year.
While these cookies were not nearly as special as having our own Santa Baby, they were still pretty adorable and delicious. I used my regular Peanut Butter Blossom cookie recipe, but I turned them into cute little cookie cups and made them more festive by rolling them in green and red sugar.
