Christmas With The Girlies 2003-2013

I was looking at the picture that I took of the girlies last night in their Christmas jammies and I thought, "Wow, they look so grown up!" This, of course, sparked a need for a nostalgic trip down memory lane, which I decided to share here so everyone can oooh and ahhh over how much my babies have grown.

2003 - Canyon Lake, TX
This was our first Christmas as a family of 4, so our first sisters picture.

2004 - Laughlin AFB, TX
Who can get a 4 year old and a 21 month old to sit still and pose nicely for a picture on Christmas morning? Obviously not me. LOL

2005 - Davis Monthan AFB, AZ
Our first ever Christmas without Daddy. We were able to open presents together over the phone from Korea and he came home shortly after Christmas for his mid-tour.

 2006 - Davis Monthan AFB, AZ
I can't remember what those things were called, but man did they go nuts for them!

 2007 - Davis Monthan AFB, AZ
Happy to have Daddy back from Afghanistan for this one. One of the girlies' more luxe Christmas Eve outfits.

2008 - All Over The Country
The Christmas holidays of 2008 brought a cross-country move, and we celebrated Christmas in AZ, several places in TX, and in TN before ending up in our new home in VA. 

 2009 - Poquoson, VA
The girlies' first really cold Christmas ever.

2010 - Poquoson, VA
I have fondly nicknamed this Christmas "Camo-Christmas" because of the amount of camoflauge this and that that came out from under the tree.

2011 - Poquoson, VA
This was the girlies' first ever white Christmas
 2012 - Tucson, AZ
Another Christmas without Daddy, but he was busy delivering Christmas cheer to the Taliban

 2013 - Tucson, AZ
Merry Christmas from the Hargis Girlies!
