Flashback Friday

I’ve been busy working on my blog posts about our trip to San Diego for Christmas so I thought that I would do a Flashback Friday from our Christmas’ over the years.
Christmas 2005 – Caty’s first Christmas
Discussing penguins with Papa
Me and my Caty
Todd and Erin drove up to join us

Not liking Santa too much!
With some of her gifts – she still sleeps with her taggie blanket and now Hanna is the owner of the Laugh and Learn Puppy.  Not sure where that Snoopy ended up.
Christmas 2006
Santa brought her a Little People Farm
And this was the Christmas that Papa made her the horse and step stool

We were at the doctors one day and we found out that Santa was there – saved us a trip to the mall and $25 He even brought her a Barbie car!

I love all the pictures of Caty when she was younger. She is so darn cute. The christmas present outfit that Hannah is wearing Jalinn has the same one last year when she was born. Your girls are such cuties!!!

Thanks for sharing the trip down memory lane! It was fun to see Caty grow up with each Christmas, she's adorable! I also think it's awesome that she wore one of your dresses, how cool is that?!

Love this post - so many fun and adorable pictures of your beautiful girls! I love that your girls have worn some of the dresses that you wore as a little girl! Caty and Hanna could not be any cuter - love their smiles!!

Ok I literally was going to say what a great trip down memory lane and my sister beat me to it! But seriously, I remember you posting some of these pics on POLP before we had blogs. What fun to look back and see Caty through the years. I must say my favorite pictures are the ones where you guys are wearing the same clothes, just decades later. It's so awesome! I did that with Preston-he wore many of my brother Chris' Christmas stretchies.
Also Caty's card came to Preston. he put it in his night stand (where he keep his important papers)! LOL!
