Apparently we were photo challenged that day, since I have really no great quality pictures from the day. (Notice the closed eyes on Grandpa Ellis above--I took 5 shots, someone had their eyes closed in every one.) I really wanted a good photo of the kids together in their cute Christmas clothes, but here is the winner of the "Best Picture of Our Children" award for that day:
Max has an adorable matching outfit, too, so I'll try to take pictures again when they are all dressed alike. Speaking of Max's clothes, though, don't you just love the blessing suit? Of course, I don't have a great shot of him in it from the day, but still . . . . It's so special to me because my mom made it for Isaiah from the same fabric she used to make my wedding dress. I'm so glad to have it to use for all our boys (and some other boys in the family!).
It was a special day, and I'm so grateful we are surrounded by family that loves and supports us. Thank you, everyone, for your help and participation!

From the top row, right to left: apple slices, vanilla yogurt, celery sticks, baby carrots, cottage cheese, dried cherries, graham crackers, ranch, oatmeal squares cereal, craisins, peanutbutter, and broccoli. I gave each child their own muffin tin this time, although I'm not sure it was a good idea as there was a lot left over. Too many choices? However, it sure is nice to have a meal where they are more than happy to try new things, especially new combinations. (They both at least tasted something from every cup!)
