christmas recap [part 1]

i know it's a bit late to be christmas blogging, but i couldn't resist recapping the festivities and our lovely visit home.

[a modified advent calendar for steve-25 small gifts/notes/stick figure drawings/coupons. i had a lot of fun wrapping these and steve had a lot of fun opening them. it made december go by really quickly too.]

  [our south african pre-christmas tree]

[photo cupcakes, because, well, i love photos, to celebrate dad's 68th birthday]

[emelia was really stoked to pick out the byrnes families second ever
R E A L christmas tree]

  [emelia decorated the bottom, beautifully i might add]

 [and steve and i heped with the top. note: if i were tagging this photo i would probably give
props to thomas kinkade for his painting]

[...and emelia thought her sparkly pony would make a great ornament. we agreed]

[emelia wanted "long rainbow hair" and joe made this a reality]

**more photos soon**
