Christmas Time

so this has been an eventful Christmas season! We had a blast getting to see and visit with a ton of family. The only bummer is that we had so many people to visit and not enough time. It's not easy to juggle our big number of family and friends all in the same town. It was nice to have Tom, Laura and Logan our way for Christmas. It was our first time seeing Logan and he is just adorable. He's active, fun, cuddly... all the things you hope for in a little one. Shirl and Spencer came down as well. It was a lot of fun getting to see them. Spencer is growing up and getting into those darn video games, but what we did get to see of him was fun. It was such a special Christmas with all of McKay's siblings here as well. Camelia, Brent, Adrienne, and Christopher underwent some serious drive time to be with us and it was so great to have them here. Camelia is an awesome auntie and seemed to really enjoy her time with Brielle. Speaking of Brielle, we also blessed little Brielle on Christmas day. It was really special. We were able to have it in our home with all of our siblings, parents, and even some aunts and uncles. It was really nice to get to see Debi, Phil, TJ, and James on Christmas and have them participate in that important event. Now we are trying to get over the holidays. One more to go (New Years tonight...) and then hopefully things will slow down a bit, we can get back into a routine, and (Brielle willing) get some rest. We love you all and hope you had a great Christmas season as well!
Love the Lauritzen's

So it has been a month already! I can hardly believe it. Our little girl is already growing up... We went in for an appointment this week and they said she is now 9lbs 13oz and 22 inches long! She's becoming our little chunk-a-monk. We are really enjoying her. She is not the most content baby in the world, but she is such a wonderful blessing. We are all doing pretty well though! I go back to work in another week and McKay will be Mr. Mom. He is still healing.... Hopefully his next cat scan will show some progress! Well that's it for now! Love you all!
