Two weeks of family, friends, and fun!


We can't believe how fast Christmas snuck up on us this year and how fast it went by! Kendall and I enjoyed having Keith home everyday (I even got to sleep in a couple of times), and we loved getting to spend quality time with both sides of our family. We are so blessed! Okay, so I can't seem to figure out how to arrange these pictures in any logical order but I still want to share some of our fun Christmas and New Years pictures!

We spent Christmas Eve with Kendall's adorable and sweet cousins! Here they all are in their new jammies from Mimi. Trying to get a picture was hilarious!

Today Kendall and I met up with our friends for a little play date.  These cuties (Nathan, Kendall, & Avlynne) hung out back in October and man have them grown and changed!

 The saddest part of Christmas was that just a day before Christmas we said goodbye to our tree. I really kept hoping it would start to take water and come back to life...it didn't. Everytime we left the house I was paranoid we'd come back with our home up in smoke. So I found a nice fake tree at an after Christmas sale and we were able to have a tree for our Williams family Christmas on the 27th. Here is the dead tree making our yard quite festive! You should see it now covered in snow.

By the end of the night the white part of Kendall's dress was practically transparent from all her drool! Teething can't be too far away.

The kids love Kendall and are so sweet to her!

 Happy girl for Christmas opening gifts with Daddy.
 It seems as though whenever my parents visit we get a TON of snow! Keith was our trusty shoveler. Nice outfit...totally appropriate for the chore. Check out our new tree in the background :) We discovered that our living room is exactly 7.5 feet tall.
 Playing Apples to Apples with Kendall
 We graduated Kendall from her bouncey chair to her high chair for eating cereal. She looks so old sitting there!!! I think she likes sitting at the same level as us.
 Papa and Gramma Williams
 Kendall got a sled for Christmas! So we had to try it out. She loved it and was giggling as Keith ran her up and down the street. She has no fear! Uh oh!
 Our little party animal on New Years (luckily she was sleeping at midnight!)

We sure hope you had a fabulous holiday with your family! Happy New year!!!

I just want to squeeze those precious little cheeks! Ok, I already snuggle her every few days, but it's never enough! I love this little bug of yours!
XO, Auntie
