'Tis the Season

This was one of the best Christmas seasons of my life! There was a whole new meaning of Christmas and thinking of the birth of our Savior now that we have our own little one in our house. I couldn't help but realize that I have never had any perspective or any idea of how much love you can have for someone and it has totally and completely humbled me to say the least to know of the love Christ has for each and every one of us. It has also helped me realize how much I need to work on loving everyone I come in contact with. It was a Christmas of a few very valuable lessons learned.

In addition to that, it was both baby's First Christmas! And I absolutely loved every minute of it. First time visiting temple lights, I think Rylee was a little over stimulated but it was well worth going. We caught her off guard with the flash on the camera.

Christmas eve was spent split between the Blasers and the Bennetts. But both got to see her cute Christmas onesie from Aunt Shurlin.

We spent the morning at our house opening presents and playing with our happy girl.

And then got ready to go to Grandma and Grandpa's (still in pajamas of course).

And she got her medicine (she got bronchitis from her little cold). And I made Chris do it whenever he was around because she hated it (if you can't tell from the leg and arms in every direction).

And we found out that she can sit up in the Bumbo (thanks Jade for letting us borrow it!)

She loves it!

And Chris and Jensen playing with one of Chris's new presents Mario Brothers for the Wii!

This was a perfect first Christmas for our little family! Fun gifts, good Christmas feeling, and wonderful people all around us!


  1. Yay Kerri! First of all I am so glad I have a way to keep updated on your life! Your baby girl is so adorable I am so excited for you!

  2. Christmas with kids is just so much funner! And it gets better as they grow!

    She's so cute Kerri! I love her christmas onesie and polka dot shoes!
