Memories Monday

CHRISTMAS 1997


This was Madison's first Christmas. He was 10 months old and already walking everywhere. This was our first Christmas with a little boy, buying presents was a little different from years past. Madison received a Tonka truck, which the boys still play with. We were a family of 6 that Christmas, 11 years later we are now a family of 11! Wow, how things have changed from that first Christmas with "1" little boy to 2008 and "6" boys!

That year was the first year we had Christmas in our new addition. The girls each received a doll, and Madison is sitting with his Tonka truck. I love to look back at Christmas pictures and remember all the different things we have done over the years at Christmas. It's also fun to see how much the kids have grown and we ALL have changed.
