New Years Eve...

This pretty much sums up our New Years Night:) Mac & Cheese dinner for the boys & then I built that little train track city and we played for quite awhile:) It was extremely laid back and after the boys went to bed by 8 Mark went and picked us up dinner and we ate in peace, drank champagne, and watched a movie all while being in pajamas--it was perfection! Honestly as I sit here and ponder about the upcoming year all I can think about is buying our new house & going on our little trip to NY in April:)--I CAN NOT wait to move and I think pinterest has made it worse than it would have been lol...seriously I have so many home projects because of pinterest that I want to start on, but I will try to live "in the moment" until we get those keys this year:) Happy New Years!!

Here are our family pictures that we took with Mark's family. I am not sure why but whenever my Mother-in-law emails me pictures they come small so that's why their not huge--we are going to have to figure that out lol, but ENOY them!

Christmas Day!

Our Christmas day was filled with FAMILY, FOOD, GOOD HEALTH, & PRESENTS all in celebration of Jesus' birth--you really can't ask for more than that! The boys, Mark, & I were all spoiled more than we deserve, but I am pretty sure we stressed enough that it was Jesus' Birthday so Trey had a semi descent grasp of what the day was about--it also helps that the last 3 Sundays at church he has been learning about Jesus' birthday and learned a special birthday song! We started out doing presents from Santa with our little family--Trey 100% got into presents this year and didn't need help opening anything! Boston was easily side tracked with whatever was already open:) Trey specifically asked Santa for a red bike so of course that wish was granted--and of course to be fair Boston got a motorized ATV to keep up with his big brother. Thomas & Chuggington trains were a plenty as well! We then headed over to my Mom's for breakfast and more presents--GiGi & Poppie might have won with the favorite gift of a real big motorized train that you would set up around your Christmas tree--the boys would NOT leave it alone {which is kind of a bummer because I will probably put it away til Christmas next year} they had Uncle Arie playing it with them for hours. We then went and headed back to MiMi & PaPa's house for presents {somehow our timeline got disorganized this year so it wasn't efficient lol} Then we went back to my Mom's for Christmas dinner and to do presents with my Grandma!
It didn't take long for Trey to figure out to look for the corner and start:)

Santa knew a motorized 4 wheeler was needed to keep up with his brother

Trey you specifically asked Santa for a RED bike:)

Then it was off to GiGi's for breakfast and presents
