Millie’s 1st Christmas with the Moore’s!

Standard

Yesterday we went over to my dads house and celebrated Christmas with all of my extended family…..and yes, we do celebrate early with everyone to ensure that we will all be together over the holidays! 🙂  It is so hard to get everyone together when we all live so spread out and are starting our own families. We missed that Lauren, Meghan, Jason, Jenn & Amelia could not make it. Hopefully next year we will have everyone there! It was great that Chad was there too.  🙂   We had all kinds of delicious foods such as Mema’s famous Mac-n-Chesse, Danielle’s fantastic Mashed Potaoes with Cheese, Cuz Danielle’s green bean casserole, Cass’s spectacular sweet potatoes, Dad’s heavenly ham, Justin’s perfect rolls, and my very buttery butter beans! (I apologize if I left anyone out!) I was busy feeding me and Millie!  To top it all off I think we had a cake for each person there! After the food we let all the children open presents which was very exciting!  Cheers to all for making Millie’s 1st Moore Christmas such a great one.  Here are some pictures of our gathering…

  4. I love the picture of Jeff and Millie as well. He is very handsome!! I will get you a copy of the picture of Simpson if you’d like. I did get the one’s you sent (all 500 of them) 🙂 and I may go back and add some! There were some people that I left off bc I either didn’t get a picture of them or they were blurry! 😦
    Thank you and dad for having everyone and Millie loves all of her new toys you guys gave her! She has been very busy trying to figure them out!!

  5. Eli thanks you for his first manicure…it was needed! 🙂 We will call you when he needs them done again…I hate doing them. So afraid I am going to hurt him! haha

  6. Looks like the Moore Christmas was alot of fun! Millie looks SOOOO cute in her Christmas dress….She was the star of the show. I can’t wait to see her in it in person. The kids are all growing. Looking forward to seeing all for Christmas

  7. It was a lot of fun! Millie said to tell you that she felt like the star of the show in her pretty dress you gave her!! I cannot wait for you to see her in her green one and pink one too! She looks precious in both of them! See you guys soon!

  8. I don’t think I’ve told you just how cute miss Millie is and I don’t know if I’ve told you how much I LOVE her name!!!

    Merry Christmas!
