Christmas of Dreams BEGINS! Meet us

Hello everyone! MomDot’s awesome Christmas of Dreams party is starting today!

Day One Blog Party Question is Brought to you by La Belle Toile and This and That by Randi
As for our family, Steven and I were just married September 18th, 2008! I have a step-daughter Lily who just turned 3 in October. My daughter Kelsie was born February 3rd, 2007. We welcomed Aubrey to our family September 3, 2008. We live in Ames Iowa.
Last Christmas was my first Christmas as a Mommy. Steven and I “hosted” Christmas at our apartment with my grandparents, Mom, and little brothers. It was kind of fun being the “contributing” kwim?
Here are some pictures from Kelsie’s First Christmas!
