Holiday Recap

Where to start?

We had such a merry Christmas!

My brother and his cute family were here for the holidays, thawing out from the coldness of Cleveland.  My boys were in cousin heaven, playing almost every day with their two boys.

We had family parties with lots of great food.

We stayed up late and slept in.

We baked and cooked and planned.

We scrambled to get last minute gifts finished and bought.

We took some darling family pictures (yes, my talented sister did these!).

We watched Christmas movies, drank hot chocolate, and played games.

Mike and I stayed up late wrapping gifts and watching Elf when the kiddies were in bed.


We read lots of holiday stories.

We opened gifts and said many, many thank yous.

We chatted on the phone with our loved ones in California and Utah.


The boys played to their hearts' content with their new treasures.

We ate, and ate and ate...

We remembered the true reason for Christmas and felt gratitude in our hearts for all of the blessings our Heavenly Father has given us, especially for His Son.

And then we rested...

Hoping your holidays were merry and bright!


  1. Love the pictures. It was a wonderful time wasn't it. So glad we could all share it together.

  2. Cousin time is the best. And such a good excuse for letting bedtimes go out the window. Everyone looks totally wrapped up in the stories. How wonderful.
