Wow! I can’t believe how fast Christmas came and went this year. We had such a great few days traveling, spending time with family, and eating lots of good food! Leland was old enough to understand opening presents and such this year which made it fun! We tried to explain to him Jesus’ birthday but I think he still has a little ways to go fully comprehending it ;) It is always so nice to see family…I absolutely love this time of the year!! Jay took some of his vacation days which was nice too. Now, it’s time to get back into a somewhat regular routine before the little one arrives in just a few months! I didn’t take many pictures when we were traveling or on Christmas day because I loved just making memories and being present in the moment. But, I did get just a few :)  I hope that you had a blessed Christmas as well!

A stop during our travels at a Christmas tree farm.

My mom, sister and I made these gingerbread men…delicious!!

 …Oh, I love my parent’s Christmas tree! So beautiful.

…Nice hat ;)

…Leland and his new train table which he loves! So cute :)

…A couple of small gifts. (I also received an espresso maker from Jay which will definitely be put to good use! Woo!)

Much love!
