December’s all a blur… Christmas party and fun times

December went by quickly for our little family. Between the coastal getaway and busy work days, the first half of the month was gone in a flash.  After coming back from the coast, we decorated the house for Christmas and then it was time for what mom endearingly calls the “clan” Christmas party.  It’s a Sunday every year when Eleanor’s paternal grandfather’s side of the family get together to celebrate and spend time with one another.  It’s a fun, loud gathering and continues getting bigger and bigger every year as the clan itself grows.    Eleanor enjoyed getting to see all the family and crawling around exploring.

Eleanor was particularly entranced by the rug

That said, she definitely was a social baby, compared to her usual self.

After the party, we came home and finished decorating the tree.

Tyler even came to help.  Dad certainly had his hands busy trying to keep little one from pulling down the tree, but it was worth it to see the smiles on her face.
