Hello Again!!

Hey yall!! I am back!! I have been so busy and having computer problems, finally tonight it's all good!! I am trying to get caught up on everyone and I am sorry I have not been commenting, I will soon, PROMISE!!!

We had a great Christmas and New Years!! The kids are at such a fun age and LOVE Christmas. All of our family live in town, so we have a such a great time spending time with everyone. Christmas Eve was at my house this year with all of my family (Mom's side). I don't have any pictures from that night (while hostessing, I tend to forget the camera, =( ). Tara has them and I will post later. Christmas Day, we have our own Christmas, then eat breakfast at Mom and Jake's. Then we spend the rest of the day at Shane's parents' home. It was so much fun and I cannot believe it is all over!!! Claire is still singing Christmas songs and Owen is still watching Christmas movies....and I am still taking down Christmas decor...so here at the Brown's it is not entirely all over =). Here are a bunch of way too late pictures from Christmas!!!
O Christmas morning...
Claire not all the way awake =)
Claire asked for dresses... =)Yes, Santa brought Owen his own punching gloves and bag...I think Santa is a glutton for punishment =) Claire got some new doll clothes...little did she know a new doll was waiting on her at Nana and Papa's!!At
At Nonna and Poppy's! Owen's excitement!!Aunt Nicole curled Claire's hair!! To Nana and Papa's!
What a great Christmas!! I hope yours was wonderful!! I will post New Year's pictures soon!!

Those are some of the sweetest pictures I've ever seen. My favorites are "Owen Excitement", and Claire's double chin. She must have been some kind of excited. Too too cute.

Can I just say I LOVE you and your sister's blog. You are such a beautiful family... not just on the outside, but on the inside I bet as well. Looking at both of your blogs makes me want to have more "family moments" like you guys seems to have. Thanks so much for sharing you life with the rest of us. You are both an inspiration!

Sounds (and looks like it too) like you all had an awesome Christmas! I have so many blogs to catch up on as well...i've read them via the iPhone, but it's hard to comment and now i've got to go back and remember what I wanted to comment on. LOL!

And I love Owen's excited picture! Too cute! Your little girl is looking more like a little lady every day!
