Merry First Christmas!
There has been a lot going on at the Shirley House since our last post. We had a wonderful holiday season with lots of celebrations with family and friends. In December we made a trip to Dalton from Claire's Great Grandmother's (better known as Gamma) 90th Birthday Party! It's amazing to think about celebrating Gamma's 90th as we prepare for Claire's 1st! A lot has changed in ninety years! We were also excited to spend our first Christmas as a family of three in our home in Birmingham! It was very different from Christmas of 2005 when I was waiting to have "the baby" at any moment! Claire decided to hang out for a few more days and just missed her first Christmas last year. It was a wonderful celebration this year and she was able to participate and really have fun which was neat. My mom and dad came for a few days at Christmas and then we headed to Dalton a few days later to spend time with Rhett's family. Claire now has more toys than she knows what to do with and has fun playing with them everyday!
