First Christmas

We had a wonderful first Christmas with our sweet little girl. We traveled to St. Louis the weekend before Christmas and got to see many of our friends. We even got to see some foreign friends, Frauke and her mom. Stephen and I picked up my brother, Andy, from the airport on Sunday night. It was the first time Julianne got to meet her uncle, the chef from San Francisco. Julianne had a wonderful time spending time with him during the week we were there! On Christmas Eve we celebrated Christmas with Stephen's family while his brother and sister-in-law were in town. We went to a Christmas Eve service at my mom and dad's church and then had a large group of friends over to sample Andy's culinary masterpieces. On Christmas we went over to my aunt and uncle's house and had a very tasty lunch and opened presents. That evening we went back to my parent's house and opened presents with our immediate family. The next day my mom, brother, Julianne, and I went to Springfield, MO to visit with family there. Julianne got to meet her great-great-grandma while we were in Springfield. It was a very busy and exciting holiday! Enjoy the pictures!
