Holidays...oh how I love you, but I'm also so happy to see you go. Anyone else understand what I'm saying? This holiday season was SO much fun (who would have thought it would be so amazing to see your child get gifts), but also SO exhausting. Call me Scrooge, but I'm kind of ready to get back to "normal" life. It definitely doesn't help because while Kev gets a week and a half off from work, I have to work extra because everyone wants to get their surgeries in by the end of the year. Silliness.

Wow, I sound so negative, but we really did have an awesome time with both families. On Wednesday, we hung out with Kev's family and then Thursday after work, we made the trip to Texas. It was all a whirlwind, but also a lot of fun. I haven't gotten a chance to download the pics from Kev's family, but here are a few highlights from the visit with mine.
The girls
Hanging with Aunt Lacey. Talk about some serious bed head!
Anja and I chilling with the dogs (minus Truman...he was there but just not in the picture).
LOVE this expression on her face!
Styling in my new boots from Mimi. Speaking of boots, she now has 4 pairs. Jackpot.
Christmas Eve. Love our tradition...we have all kinds of hor d'oeuvres-like foods (which I love) and a little bit of wine. It is so much fun!
Elliott "opening" her presents. She had so much fun...at least I think she did. :) She actually took a nap mid gift opening at my parent's house so I don't think she was too excited.

I meant to say this on my last post but I forgot. Isn't that what always happens? As soon as you hit publish, you think of at least 2 other things you were going to mention. Anyway, I was just going to say that Miss Elliott is indeed a big girl, but she really had no choice. I was looking back at my baby book to see how big I was at 4 months...I was 17 pounds and over an inch shorter than her. So I was even a bigger baby because I weighed more and was shorter. Poor girl never had a chance to be petite. :)


  1. Looks like a great Christmas! So sad we missed you guys. Elliott looks fab in her new kicks!

  2. Loved seeing some pictures from the weekend! We miss you guys and Elliott already..she's the cutest ever! I hope Truman is as worn out as Vader:)
