Christmas Wrap-Up

Aaaand it's over. Just like that. The day after Christmas always makes me so sad! All of the events, outings, lights, feelings, food, and festivities leading UP to Christmas Day are the best! When it's over, it's like..ok..what now?

Now I am faced with questions like, "How long should I leave my Christmas Tree up for?" and "Is it still ok to eat like a little piggy until New Years?". Not as much fun, my friends.

However, Christmas WAS really great! Both of our families live here, so we have a busy busy couple of days. It's a lot of work with a six month old, but we actually did pretty well I think..all things considering! (A HUGE THANKS to all our family members who helped, changed diapers, and entertained D while we were there)!

The Highlights:

Ty's Grandma playing "Face Cookie" (Minute-To-Win-It Games) and getting all up in my bro-in-laws face to try and intimidate him.

Davis being obsessed with eating the wrapping paper, instead of the gift that was IN the wrapping paper.

My Grandma making a batch of Divinity (my favorite candy ever) just for me to eat (oink oink) 

My 5-year-old cousin, while trying to look for a bag of Pistachios my Uncle had hidden, yelling "Gimme your nuts!" and EVERYONE dying of laughter. 

Seeing Davis sit up for a LONG time and happily take in all the attention he was getting from doing so. 

Looking through an old photo album with my sister and laughing hysterically at all the memories.

Watching my family open gifts to and from each other and the looks on their faces!

Ty looking at all of my boards on Pinterest, and picking out things to give me from my Pins! I was so IM-pressed!

Talking to my brother in Argentina (he left a week ago), and getting to hear about his first week down there. 

Seeing my Mom & Dad sharing a tender moment.

Tyler's family singing "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas" and getting it stuck in my head the whole day!

Going through all the traditions that I love so much and having so much fun doing it!

It was an amazing whirlwind of a weekend, and I am happy it was a success! I am also in desperate need of a NAP!

I hope you all had a fantastic Holiday with your family and friends!
