A very Merry Christmas with one brand new little elf!
You can count this as our Christmas letter, because by the time I get around to typing one up it will be for next year anyway.
Traveling with Jake's sister Melissa to vist Abby and Sean in Idaho.
Cornmaze with Elliot was a blast!
First trick or treating Halloween with Elliot, our little chick.
On November 23rd at 3:15am Emmett Shaw Webster entered the world. He was 7 lbs 14 oz and 20 inches. He was two weeks early, and was born a bit medium rare. He spent 10 days in the NICU before they pronounced him well done, and let him finally come home. We feel so blessed to have this beautiful baby boy, healthy and in our arms. That was a long 10 days!
This little man deserves a post all to himself, but mom is feeling quite stretched to the max at the moment. :)
Nana came to help take care of us---laundry, "home" cooking, cleaning, wrestling and loving Elliot. We are so greatful for all she did, thank you doesn't begin to cover it. :)
We were also blessed with a new nephew, just 5 days before Emmett was born. Owen Behr Webster (Ben and Kaylee's 3rd).
COLIC and acid reflux. Oh wait, guess that's not a highlight. :)
Abby came to take over for mom. Elliot was literally her little shadow the ENTIRE time. I can't thank my lil sister enough for her help!
First Santa visit. Bit traumatic.
Christmas party at James and Lyndsie's. Can't believe the work they put into it, but are so greatful. Lyndsie even pre-made little ginger bread houses for all of the kids to decorate. Elliot's house made it out of there with a single gum drop. Everything else made it right in to her mouth.
Christmas Eve at Peter and Jill's. YUMMY traditional Engish breakfast for dinner. This will be a fun new tradition!
Christmas day/night at Peter and Jill's with entire Webster mob. :) So fun! Elliot just loves her cousins. Jill along with her little helpers prepared a fantastic feast, with beautifully set tables. Great conversation, 12 loudly joyful children under the age of 12 and Uncle Matt! ;) Gifts exchanged. Diapers changed. What a wonderful day.
Now ON TO 2011!!!
We wish all of our family and friends a wonderful new year!
