Justin gathered together my brothers and cousins, and created his own backyard football team. It was Justin and the younger kids vs. the bigger kids. They had tons of fun in the huddle trying to decide who to pass to next. They only had one minor injury and Dr. Justin was there to get things all fixed up.
Justin also found some time to tell stories to the kids, they all had fun telling their own stories too. When my aunt Jill saw this gathering she said "It's too bad they don't like him at all." They all love Justin (with the exception of Sydney...) and it's easy to see why I fell in love with him too.
We had a baby shower a few days before Christmas since we had the whole family together, which doesn't happen often. Everyone was so generous and we came home with a car packed to the gills with clothes and toys for our little guy.
The decorations were so simple and so cute! my mom and aunt made the blocks from boxes and scrapbook paper. The Pooh bear on the motorcycle was made by my mother-in-law Laurie-ann. It's made from a bottle, burp cloth, blanket, mittens, and diapers.
Somewhere in the Christmas crazyness we found time to take family pictures with both families. The pictures with the Hart family were taken at Craig Park in Fullerton by John Fredette (Justin's uncle, and the same photographer who did our engagement pictures) see his other awesome pictures or more from us at http://www.photography.johnfredette.com/
The pictures with the Croft family were taken at La Mirada Regional Park, by Forest Ferkin (The same photographer who did our wedding photos)
Christmas was a busy time but we enjoyed spending time with both families and our friends too. We hope you enjoyed your holidays as much as we did!
