December Recap

Here are a few pictures from some of our holiday season festivities.....

We took Lily to DTW to check out the beautiful christmas lights on the square. Even though there was not a flake of snow on the ground it was freezing outside. Lily loved the lights so much she had us walk through it twice.

A handprint santa clause, mommy daddy and lily finger print tree and Lil's footprint.

Lily made and painted ornaments for her relatives with her little buddy Ethan

I could kick myself in the butt, I worked so hard on making candy cane kiss cookies, santa and candy cane shaped cookies and peanut butter cookies but did not take a picture of any of them ugh

We kicked off our holiday parties with the Williams family x-mas party at uncle neals house where Lily enjoyed playing with all of her new horse figures with her uncles and grandpa

Christmas Eve is always such a special magical time at Mamaw's house every year.
This year Lily decided that she just HAD to wear her tutu with her christmas dress... ahh typical adorable toddler .

Santa came to our house..Looks like Lily was a very very good little girl this year !!!!!

New Friendships made.

Christmas morning at Grandma and Poppys house. Our first stop in a very long christmas day.

Our Second Stop on Christmas. We drove out to Jefferson to celebrate with Great Mother and Rob. It was a wonderful time. Lily was completely in love with all of the doggies.

Uncle Greg and Lily on Christmas Eve night having fun opening gifts

Ethan and Amy came over our house to make salt dough ornaments for everyone.  Everyone had such a good time.

This Christmas will go down as the one that came and went way to quickly, also as the one without any snow. The one where we put the christmas tree up before thanksgiving,and played christmas music every single day. The one where we made homemade ornaments and sent the christmas cards out super late. The one where I baked detailed cookies non stop for a whole day and than went to work overnight until 6:30am totally forgetting to take a single picture of them. The one where we slept a total of 7 hours in 3 days.The one where we traveled to six parties in 2 days and slept 7 hours in 3 days. The one where Justin was able to stay two fun filled nights with us and Lily and Matthew became inseparable buddies. The one where Lilys smile on christmas morning will forever be imprinted in my memory. The one where Santa brought Lily a play kitchen .yet she still still playing with the box it came in two weeks later. The one where we were still wrapping gifts on christmas day in between parties and Finn our christmas elf came to visit and watch over us for a whole month.

The one of many that we will forever cherish with our family.
