11 Months Old!

Graham is ringing in the new year by turning 11 months old.  As he's nearing his first birthday, he seems as big as ever. His standing is impressive and I predict he'll be off and walking in the next few weeks.  He's already mastered walking with a push toy or holding your hand, so it's just a matter of time for his own solo steps.  And when he is on the move, the proud smile on his face is adorable. His love of wrestling continues and he's started to attempt to wrestle his older boy cousins when they are together. He's still only has the two bottom teeth, but at least 4-6 are just sitting under his gums waiting to burst through any day.  He loves to mimic sounds you make and his laugh is as sweet as he is.  Happy 11 months Graham!  Now onto planning your 1st birthday party!!
(And somebody who wanted to pretend they were 11 months old too and wear the sticker..)

A Real-Life Nativity Scene

Aunt Patti orchestrated a real-life family nativity scene with all the kids.  It was definitely one of the highlights of the entire holiday season.  Baby Jesus Graham and Angel Olivia played their parts magnificently.

Merry Christmas!

It was a rare Christmas where the entire Murray-Giles-Elsener clan was all in Chicago to celebrate and we had a delightful time being all together. Kids make Christmas all that more magical, especially these eight special little ones.

Santa Delivered!

Dollhouses!  Train tables!  Oh My!
What a wonderful Christmas morning for our little ones.

Christmas Eve
