Christmas Plates

For Connor's first Christmas in 2009, we went to a pottery place where we picked out a Christmas plate and painted it as a family. We stamped the plate with his footprints to remember how tiny he was. When we had the twins we knew we wanted them to have their own plates, but we weren't sure if we wanted to get three matching plates so they could all put them out for Santa or whether or not we wanted different ones. At the end of December, we took the babies to continue our "First Christmas Plate" Tradition. Connor stayed with my mom, Debbie, Nathan, and Erin.

 We took turns painting and holding babies. We tried the whole holding a baby AND painting thing and it didn't work out so well.
 Well the plates were done about two weeks ago and Mr. Howard and I kept trying to get out there (it's about a 40 minute drive from our house), but we finally did it this weekend. First we let each baby model his/her plate!

Connor "made" an adorable Santa plate in 2009, which you can see HERE.
