Our first Christmas stop was in Lawrenceville to see the Nashes & the Clarks.
Guess what Sam got for Christmas?
He warmed up by helping us open our presents, and then…
Melissa’s note: I take full credit for the shoddy wrapping job.
You could hear him all over the neighborhood:
Christ Central Church hosted a series of Christmas movies at the Neighborhood Theatre this year, which was a really cool idea. The night before our family Christmas we headed there to take in our favorite Christmas movie, A Charlie Brown Christmas.
This has become one of our favorite Christmas memories. It was so sweet to sit there with our little boy and see him experiencing everything for the first time.
I escaped for a little down time and was about to check my email when I overheard this conversation going on in the kitchen.
Grandma: What are you making there?
From DC we drove south to Richmond where our sweet friends, the Purdys, live. Matt and Jake graduated from RTS together and he & Kristen have two boys, Owen (2) and Baxter (9mo).
On Saturday night Richmond got some snow, and I am always excited about group pictures in the snow. Only this time I didn’t realize the video was on. It’s just hilarious to see people standing still for a video camera.
Last week we trekked to DC to visit our dear friends the Stofers. John & Kristi were both in our wedding, started dating a little later, got married, and now have a precious 7-month-old named Jack.
Since they couldn’t be with us like last time, we caught up with the Griffiths via Skype.
The Stofers live on Capitol Hill and are just a few blocks from- that’s right- The US Capitol! They also have a cool stroller with a nifty second-child add-on. Sam & Jack test drove it on our way to the new visitors’ center.
