The family from the Peanut Gallery is alive and well and crawling out from under the "Blur" that was December.
A lovely blur...but still a blur.
Many people ask us if we "planned" on having three December births on account of D-man being born in December.


Who in their right mind would "plan" such a thing?

All that being said, it was a lovely season.
We had delightful family time with relatives from near and far.
I have a quadrillion pictures and was having great difficulty choosing which ones to share.

So I thought I'd give the birthday boys the honor they deserve.

So..without further ado.
I present you the December Birthday Boys in order of their birthdays.

C-boy celebrated his day at Chuck E. Cheese...planned the night before the big event!

L-boy enjoyed his second birthday immensely. The Bakerella's reindeer cake pops were a huge hit!
However, you will never find me slaving over another cake pop in this lifetime.
More on that later.
Oh yes, much more.

The Reason for the Season!

The man who, with the exception of baby Jesus, made all of these other births possible!
I love this man.
Yes I do.
He's one of the GOOD ones!

And last...but never least..our New Year's Eve baby.
Our tax deduction.
Who is not a baby anymore. Boo Hoo.
But I LOVE the boy that he has become!
Including his "bedhead"!

And that is all for today.
I hope that your Christmas Holiday was as "blur-rific" as ours!!

Oh yes..and Happy New Year.

Super cute and catchy blog title, Julie..I love it! It looks like your December was busier than mine. Love the pics and I especially love the Willow Tree nativity pieces. I love their pieces. Hope January slows down a bit for you. :)

Have a great Jan.!!

We have been missing you Julie, really we have. Great pictures. We had a great holiday time as well and I have pictures as well as other interesting stuff over at my blog if you have time. Welcome back and have a great week.

So good to see you... and what a lovely blur!
Happy New Year!

Leanne said...

Awe .... LOVE the photos and all the births in your home this month! LOVE them all! (And you are, once again, my hero! I've printed about about 100 bakerella recipes ... and each time I'm about to make them, I decide that's just WAY TOO MUCH WORK for me, and opt for a 9x13 instead! Can't wait to hear more about your adventure with them! They are SO adorable!) Happy January to all of you!

Jenn said...

Hah! You're December looks like my July and August! They're a blur for me as well. I've got 2 birthdays in July and 2 in August! It's fun, but oh so... crazy at the same time. :)

Glad you made it through and had a wonderful Christmas... and Happy New Year!

Tiffany said...

Wow! Happy Birthday to ALL your guys! No wonder it was a blur.

Sarah Halstead said...

Sounds like a busy December. Glad you are back. :D Can't wait to hear more about your month. Your boys are so cute!

Amy said...

Glad to know you are doing well! Happy new year to you! On an unrelated note, we have that exact same nativity set.

*Jess* said...

wow, happy birthday to all your boys!

Liz said...

It's not so much that you wanted a December baby as it is you are rather fertile in March. :)

(Since I have a December baby, I can say that!)

The Iowa Farmer's Wife said...

Oh my goodness 4 (5 if you count Jesus) birthdays in December! Holy cow, mama that is one big month! Good to see you posting again!

3LittleMonkeys said...

Wow...3 birthdays! That is exciting, and a lot of work. I can't believe you even TRIED those cake pops! *bowing down to you*

Your family is so handsome!

He & Me + 3 said...

Well happy birthday to your boys. Too cute. My son was sitting on my lap and immediately that at Chuck E cheese? LOL they know the fun places.

Melissa said...

Glad you had a wonderful break away from blogland, we all need to keep our priorities straight right?!!
Happy New Year to you too Julie, your littles are SO adorable, bed-head especially!

Courtney said...

Aww, happy birthday to all your boys! I know, I have 2 December babies and I would definitely not have planned that. :)

Amy Sullivan said...

Beautiful pics and I love that red hair. Growing up one of my best friends had red hair. I was always jealous!

LKP said...

happy birthday to ALL your december boys. Jesus included. ;)
(btw, that nativity photo is fabulous!)
thanks for the uplifting comment. it's hard to allow myself to be vulnerable in a face-2-face scenario. people closest are the ones who have the greatest potential to harm, unfortunately. but i'm working on me so i can risk more easily. ::hugs::
have a great week!

Natalie said...

Glad to see you back and we had a blur-ific December too!

Love Letters To China said...

Wow you have been busy. I thought having one birthday on January 4th was a lot to handle. I guess I was so wrong. ;-) Looks like you managed to make everyone's day very special.

Look forward to seeing rest of your December photos.

Happy New Year!!


lulalola said...

I'm a December girl too! It's a busy time to be born! You are so lucky to have each and every one of them! Happy Birthday to your guys!

Jenilee said...

What a month you had!!! I love that nativity set from willow tree. so precious!

Hannah said...

Dude. You had a CRAZY December! I love the pictures but mostly I'm just glad to see you back :):):)

Stacey said...

Happy Birthday month to your family!! I only have one birthday in December and that's plenty. If definitely add to the blur that is December anyways!

Arizona Mamma said...

Happy birthday to all those beautiful boys! I couldn't imagine. It's bad enough that Andy's in December and Drew and Addyson are both in February.

I think I'd have a break down ;)

Seizing My Day said...

And she blogs!! =) he he
I love all the red hair in your family too... my little boy has hints of red... strawberry blondish... =) All three of your boys were born in Dec!!?? crazy! As if December wasn't busy enough... you deserve a massage after a month like that!! ha ha!

I am dying to hear your cake pop story!! lol!! It took me three rounds to feel like I 'got it'... and I felt the same way... they were a pain but SUCH a HUGE hit... I know I will cave and make them again! but... somehow... somewhere... my cakepop cookbook went missing. KID you NOT... MISSING. Gone. No where to be found! I have cleaned, gutted, searched high and low... GONE... what the heck?!! its a sign!?? =)
