Gabby was almost 3 months old, Steven was 2. This was in our 2nd, bigger 2-bedroom apartment in Austin, Texas. This was Christmas Eve and Steve had just returned home from 10 weeks at OTS the day before. Having him home felt like a dream. It was a wonderful Christmas. Even with our Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.
Here we are this year! Jack is 17 months old, Gabby is 3, Steven is 5. Unlike every other even-year Christmas picture, I am neither pregnant nor about to find out I am. We will be spending Christmas here at home this year with my whole family and almost all of Steve's family. It's going to be a great, big, wonderful family Christmas!
This is the first year that our Christmas picture doesn't have anything Christmassy (it's a word)in it. It's not often that we take a family picture and I don't like being limited to only using our Christmas picture at Christmas time - so, this year we went neutral with the background. Also, it should be noted that I was going with a black/white/grey theme with the outfits, but if you notice Steve's outfits in the first three years, I'm doing good just getting him out of undershirts or hooded sweatshirts and superman capes for family pictures. So, his green plaid shirt can't really be complained about... but it was frowned upon.
