Holiday Highlights

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

We had a wonderful (fast and furious) Christmas and New Year - lots of time with family, eating, quality-time with cousins, festivities, going back and forth, and really just enjoying each others' company. It was a special first for Homegirl and a fun one with T, as he was really into opening gifts, full of excitement, and 'understood' it was Jesus's birthday. Here are just a few highlights..

Christmas Eve Day festivities

A gift only an Uncle would give :) // Hulk smash!!
 
This past year flew by!! It was full of many things to be thankful for - a healthy, growing family, new adventures, friends, and experiences, our faith and freedom that we don't take for granted; overall, enough joy and blessings to outweigh any tough and sad times.
We look forward to 2015 with hopeful hearts and wish nothing but the best for you and your loved ones!!

  3. Your house is gorgeous! LOVE your decorations!!! Looks like you had an amazing Christmas! I love those hulk gloves. I bet Seth and Mason would have a BALL if Mason had some of those. Seth often says "Mason, what happens when mommy wants to go shopping? SHOP HULK!" haha. Not that that stops me or anything, but it is funny he tries ;)
    LOVE those reindeer waffles!!! You are so festive with breakfasts!

    1. I have to give all the waffle design credit to the Mr., I showed him a pic of what I had in mind and he put it together, turned out so cute!! Thanks, it was especially fun putting Homegirl in a cute little dress (already has me looking forward to Easter and dressing up)!!

    1. It sure is, I'm learning they make want to go a little overboard with everything..!! :) But either way makes for a wonderful time, and hopefully special memories. Yeah, I don't think we'll be getting the hulk hands out when other particular little boys and/or cousins are over. Ha!
