Happy New Year!
We’re set and relaxing our way into 2018 and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
It’s been a whirlwind Christmas season and I’m finally sharing a recap of all the fun!
*disclaimer: this is picture OVERLOAD so just be prepared!
We headed to my Mama’s on Saturday before Christmas and enjoyed some queso and margaritas 🙂
I got to pick the restaurant and I couldn’t NOT pick Mexican 🙂
After dinner, we headed back to my Mom’s to do some Christmas baking…
while Logan helped do some wrapping 🙂
My siblings arrived the next day just in time to celebrate Christmas Eve at the Leinie Lodge!
This has kind of become a tradition for us at my Mom’s. We head there for a little bit of beer tasting (not my favorite!) and some soft pretzels (a total favorite!).
We goof around and look at all the fun Christmas decorations and the good sales on cute stuff.
Once we got home from the Brewery, we tried something new and did a Christmas crawfish boil!
Logan braved the cold while boiling it all up outside!
We enjoyed matching pajamas (well, the girls enjoyed some!), took a few pictures by the tree before playing some games and heading to bed!
Just a few pictures, as usual 😉
We celebrated Christmas morning opening gifts, enjoying Baby Nora (her first Christmas!!) and getting everything ready to head over to my Grandma’s.
How sweet is this girl?!
We did a Secret Santa (via Elfster) with my in-laws and since we couldn’t be there on Christmas to open them, we facetimed them and opened our gifts so we could keep the guesses flowing.
We headed back out with my family for good food and a fun White Elephant game – with some dice involved!
This is my little (2nd) cousin – she’s such a doll and my Mom swears Bre and her look alike 🙂
It’s sweet when you get all the little cousin’s together!
We also hear that we look a lot like – so they needed a picture of us together to see 🙂
We ended our night with more games!
And that was Christmas 2017 with my family!
We celebrated with my in-laws and somehow I didn’t take many pictures…. which is ironic because Logan surprised me with a really nice camera!!
We opened presents (sans pictures, boo!) and spent time with Logan’s grandparents!
My SIL had a Gymnastics meet and we were able to go see her compete!
It was a closed meet so we made sure to sneak in quietly 🙂
She is seriously amazing – I can never get over how good she is on all those events!
We got matching pajamas (so fun – i wasn’t kidding when I said I loved those things!) and they just so happen to be monogrammed – two of my favorite things!
Love these girls!
The boys got a matching top too – we’re just missing Tanner and Erika!
We visited my Dad and Step-Mom for a few hours to catch up, open gifts and have lunch.
My Sister came over too – which is always so great to see her 🙂
We enjoyed Mimosa’s which are a HUGE favorite of mine!
We went back to Logan’s parents and played “That’s what she said” – along with “What’s yours like”? You definitely need to play both of these games – if you like to laugh 🙂
We celebrated New Year’s by ourselves at home after a busy few weekends!
We my husband smoked Prime Rib in -8 degree weather! Isn’t that crazy?!
We toasted to a New Year with good food, good drinks and better company (I mean, our pups are great company! :))
Hope you had a fabulous Christmas and New Years!
I’ll be back tomorrow (big shocker, isn’t it?!?!) with my favorite styles to prepare for the Lilly sale!
