A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

We had a busy, and very fun day with our family. Always sad to see it end!
Friday we will celebrate Christmas with Rick's family...cant wait :)


  1. What a great Christmas celebration with those you love.

    The down-on-the-floor coloring, the passing of Christmas treats, the new doll..., all part of what looks to be a fabulous family gathering. Love it.

  2. I love it when it's the year that ALL of us can make it to mom's, we have a good time!

  3. Hooray you had them all together! So happy for you! Love how Audrey runs to Auntie Jenny! ;)

    1. We had such a great time, and Yes Audrey LOVES her aunts & uncles, they are so good to her!

  4. Love it all, easily the best day of the year. I love how Grandpa ALWAYS passes out cookies at the same exact time :) It was all perfect, but way too quick!

    1. It's like Grandpa has a timer in his head....same time, every year!
