This is Christmas Eve at the traditional Christensen Christmas Party. Mj was sooooo cute this year with the whole Santa thing. She sat up on his lap and looked into his eyes....her eyes wide and glistening (no joke) ...she spoke softly..."why do you love me so much? Just after that she hugged him. I had to check to see if I was tearing up because my heart swelled three times in size.
I wish that I would have gotten her saying that magical phrase...."Why do you love me so much?" But here is just after that ....look how she just stared at him.....she is nothing like I was ....I think I screamed everytime my mother sat me on his lap up until I was at least 5 or 6.
Christmas Morning at the Riley's House.
Notice that Darren and I are not in any of the Pictures....first off Christmas Morning with Children in the house is all about them and their pure excitment. Parents on the other hand are extremly tired from staying up late and are not looking their best....lol. I looked like someone hit me with a sleigh. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!
