Each year, my girl Lesli and I get together to bake Christmas cookies, and this year was deemed particularly fun, due to my delirium brought on by a 5 am wake up. There was much laughter and thanks to her we made about 8 dozen cookies to distribute to my neighbors and friends. Here is a little sample of our “cookie mockumentary”, enjoy!
There is something so special about living among people in a community, where you not only call them friends, but family. I’m certain we are one of many that consider this of the Wilton family, but never the less they are so dear to us. Ally was there at my daughter’s birth, we often celebrate Christmas with a wonderful homemade Christmas eve dinner, our girls love playing together, and Dave could not be a better friend to my husband, Wade. With that said, we got a call late on Christmas day with the news that Ally was in labor! Being a transplant, like ourselves, to CO, Ally’s parents live a 2 day drive away, so with the help of many loving friends, we covered shifts watching her girls until her parents arrived tonight. I was lucky enough to not only spend time with the girls, but also take them to meet there new baby brother Gideon! They didn’t find out until Gideon arrived that he was a boy, but Dave couldn’t be more thrilled! Also, his pride and love for Ally for enduring her third “all natural” delivery in just three years could not have been sweeter, and more sincere! Below is just one of my fave’s from the day. Congrats Wilton family!
