Love Miss Ocean's little hip out pose. Merry Christmas.Bettina @ www.littleoldsouls.com
haha! Me too! Such a sass.
Beautiful photos, and Wow! Such a cool Gingerbread duo!
Thank you!They had a snowman too! haha
The gift that has so far amused my daughter the longest were 2 bibs from her uncle and aunt... bibs that are actually intended for her baby brother. I love how the simple things so easily steal the day!
haha! RIght? Luna really enjoyed the wrapping paper. Of course.
Aw you guys! This makes my heart so happy :) It looks like your family had the best time!! We're definitely enjoying the slow pace afterwards...
Same here! We have yet to get back home, on the road tomorrow!
So lovely! This post fills my heart with joy. The girls are so cute and they make the greatest faces! I hope you and you family had a great holiday. It sure looks like you did!!xoxo ♥P.S. We used newspaper to wrap our gifts too!
Thanks so much Desiree! I hope your Christmas was wonderful as well!xoxox
wtf is wrong with you, why do you feel the need to brag about the fact that you are poor as hell and can not even give your kids a good xmas......your guys are losers and your kids need a way better home!
Im not sure how it reads as bragging but I am very happy that we can afford to give them some gifts they love on Christmas.I think our concept of poor is different. My needs are met and more. The rest is icing on the cake as far as I am concerned. I am actually in the top 12% of richest people in the world. Perspective maybe?http://globalrichlist.com/
Assuming that "anonymous" doesn't personally know my sister or nieces I'll assure you that Ocean and Luna have everything they need... a place to live, food to eat, and most importantly, parents that love and care for them. Toys and games just add to the fun, and they have plenty of those anyway.The girls had a great Christmas and I don't think the amount of presents they did (or did not) get had much to do with it. Bekah and Marc are raising the girls to be grateful for everything they have, and I personally think that's awesome because that is something that our society greatly lacks.
Thanks for that link. Definitely puts things in perspective... I know from traveling to Puerto Rico and Ecuador that what we consider "poor" here in the US is rich in a lot of other places. I used to tell my students, who came from the poorest congressional district in the US, that in another country, they would have no shoes, no TV, would be living in a shack with a corrogated metal roof. That said, even I'm surprised at how high up on the list I am, mostly because I live in the richest county in the tristate area and I know that my husband makes a mere fraction of what others around here earn.
Wow I never comment but jeez what a rude, harsh, unnecessary comment!It is very obvious the kids are well-loved and provided for. She is an amazing mom and blogger. Ignore all the haters they are just jealous!
Looks like you had a lovely little Christmas! This was the first year that we really celebrated Christmas (I'm Jewish, husband is not) and I went all out, making dinner Christmas eve for my mom and sister and even hung stockings! We gave our two girls new pjs and slippers before they went to bed and they were enthralled Christmas morning when they saw their gifts under the tree. Christmas morning is not about how much money you spend but the sheer joy of giving and receiving gifts, no matter how big or small they are. Looks like Ocean and Luna are beyond thrilled with what they got!
Thanks so much Nancy! I agree. Money is not what is important. :)
