P.S. You should name the baby Jeffrey.

This year we had our first Christmas in our own home, by ourselves as a family. It was really great.

 Had to include this glamor shot, we were matchy with our new Christmas sweaters.
And this sweet one. Milo got her the blue ring she'd been just desperate for at the school Christmas shop.

Not pictured but of note: Milo's first Flowbee haircut from Uncle Will later that night. And my Best of Dolly Parton record to go with my new record player. And about a hundred other wonderful and thoughtful gifts!

This is about the cutest, down home christmas ever. Can I be added to the list with your husband and mom who need you to blog still? Okay good. I love how simple and lovingly you live.

Hi! Great to see you again! I think I might follow your lead and start blogging again too. Actually, my blog is apparently full and I need to start over again, so I've been procrastinating that. Gonna get it done though! So is the baby going to be named Jeffery? Is the baby a boy? There is a new baby coming, right?

we did christmas at home with just us for the first time this year too and loved it. in theory that was supposed to be for when we would have a baby or kids but whatever. no time like the present. or the presents. get it???

Ah, looks so awesome. I love it. We were at home too this year, I kind of like getting "older." Raymond's arch enemy at school is Jeffrey, so that wouldn't fly with him. We were watching home movies last night from the island and couldn't believe how little they were. Really want to get together with you guys sometime, wonder what the best way to contact each other IRL would be. So happy you guys have your own home! Hoping to do that grown up thing in a few years too. :) Hope your pregnancy is going well!

Uh, my comment posted three times, sorry. I tried to clean it up. I promise I didn't keep talking or say something controversial. :)

I've looked at this a dozen times. I love the kids' expressions and Milo's letter and the photo of you and Jamie. Everything.

I can't handle these photos.

I love everything about your life.

Your kids are models. Your house is decorated to perfection (I still envy that sofa).

And I can't wait to met Jeffrey! :)

Aw, yay! What a perfect way to spend the holidays :)

Love this, Abby! I'm guessing you don't know the gender of your baby yet, but will it be Jeffrey either way? :) I'm so happy for you!

I'm glad you had a great Christmas. I love these pictures, and that letter was so sweet. Stuff like that melts my heart. Savor it because Kaleb is doing it less and less. :( I am wondering if you are having a boy or a girl, so when you find out, you must let us know. Or are you not going to find out and keep us all in suspense? :)

I loved every bit of this.

I'm ready for more ...
