Norah cut her first tooth today! As soon as I can get a good picture, I'll post it. Michael and I were driving in the car when Norah started crying. When we got to the mall, she had a new tooth. I guess her new tooth popped through on the ride to the mall.

The Christmas Season is always a busy time! Norah celebrated to the fullest at each Christmas function we attended.
Norah relaxing in her favorite Christmas shirt.
Santa sent Norah an Elf on the Shelf. His name is Elvis the Elf.
He flies back to the North Pole every night to tell Santa if Norah has been a good girl. Then when he comes back to our house, he lands in a new place.
Aunt Sister made Norah a stocking!
Aunt Sister makes everyone in our family a stocking on their first Christmas in the family.
The Smith family invited us over on Christmas Eve to decorate cookies for Santa. We gladly accepted because we love spending time with the Smith family. We exchanged gifts and decorated cookies.
Norah got Megan and Macie's favorite Dr. Seuss book, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. As you can tell, Norah is ready to read it.
Grandmother had a Christmas gathering at her house. Norah was not the best participant! She was in the process of cutting teeth, so she was very whiny. Luckily I was able to snap a few pictures when she wasn't crying.
We had our annual Christmas Ornament exchange at Carla and Chuck's house. Norah was not in a good mood. She was very tired and cranky, so she slept through most of Christmas at Carla's.

Ashton was enjoying every suck he could get on his paci before Santa took it back to the North Pole with him in exchange for a new bike and scooter.
Jamie had Christmas at her house for Daddie's side of the family. The weather wasn't too cold outside, so all of the kids were able to walk to the park down the street and play before eating and opening gifts.
Norah snuck a Candy Cane off of the Christmas tree while no one was looking. She was trying her best to get the paper off before she got caught.
We celebrated Christmas at our house on Christmas Day. Michael's mom and step Dad, Dennis, were here to help us celebrate the holiday. Jamie, Carlos, Aunt Midge, and Aunt Dale came to our house to eat lunch and opening gifts.
