Christmas 2013

I never posted about Christmas.

Mainly because it was a whilrwind of non-stop for about two straight weeks. Michelle came in the week before, then Kiki and her family, then we had nonstop Christmas family activities, then we had Christmas, then we went to see Anthony's family, then we came home and slept for 10 days. Just kidding on the sleeping part- though I wish it was true!

We had the BEST year yet! I loved getting to see every single person of both sides of our families. We are so blessed with such loving parents and siblings and nieces/nephews. We are so thankful for the memories and traditions we build each year. And we are so thankful that we are so blessed to celebrate how we want!

Most of the rest of this post will be pictures... :)

Always thankful for the holidays- despite the non-stop chaos and fun times, I'm always a little thankful it's over and we can resume normal life, too! There is just something about our little world that makes me extra happy! :)
