Tis the Season

Wow it has been busy. I know the holidays are all hustle and bustle for everyone, but to make things even more intense, we decided to take a road trip. It was a 9 hour drive to the DC area followed by another 5 hour drive south to North Carolina. The trip in total was a little over a week, and in that time we did so much!
Did a LOT of sight-seeing

Spent time with some friends

Quality time with our cousins

Became Santa professionals

We made it home 2 days before Christmas and spent our Christmas in the comfort of our own home. I am blown away by how many presents the kids got. We have much to be thankful for, including loving and generous family and friends.

Opening some of the MANY gifts they received
What a difference a year makes! Last Christmas, Connor was a mere 5 days old and we were scrambling around, sleepless, trying to figure out life with two. This year we were able to enjoy our kids and see the excitement on their (Riley's) faces, reflecting the magic of Christmas.
