christmas 2011

we hosted christmas in newport this year and i sort of felt like i was playing dress-up. we got out our china, lit lots of candles, made a standing rib roast with yorkshire pudding and josh read 'twas the night before christmas before we tucked the girls in on christmas eve.

it was magical having my parents here. their presence makes things so much sweeter. and the girls talked more about baby jesus than santa and presents, so i was thrilled. 

despite karoline getting a stomach bug at 2 am on christmas morning and only getting 3 hours of sleep we lived in the moment and embraced the spirit of the season. barf bowl and all.
