Happy Holidays!

I hope that everyone had an enjoyable Christmas and got to spend time with family and loved ones.

Our Christmas was fairly quiet here. We had the Given Christmas on the Sunday before Christmas since Stacey had plans with Darin's family. It seemed liked it was so early to have Christmas, I wasn't mentally ready!! It was really nice though, we got to eat lots of food that we haven't eaten since this time last year! The girls both got some great gifts and they had a lot of fun playing with their cousins.

We spent Christmas Eve home waiting for Santa. Kayla and I baked cookies and desserts for Christmas day at the Holwadel Christmas! Would you believe I completely forgot to take pictures of that?! We were caught up in the moment I guess!

We have been very busy over the past few weeks! Audrey turned one on November 24. I cannot believe she is already one!! Time flies! Kayla's birthday was the 13th of December so we had a family celebration and then for some reason I agreed to having 9 girls sleep over!! That was a lot of fun! The girls had a blast and barely got any sleep but isn't that what sleepovers are all about?!

We are looking forward to a quiet New Years Eve. Mom has volunteered to watch the girls so Tom and I are going to go to dinner and then spend a quiet evening at home. I just don't trust people on New Years with the drinking and driving, I would rather be safe at home! I am hoping to get some scraping done some time this week and post some Christmas layouts. I need to give Heather a holler!! I wanted to share some Christmas pictures with everyone. I hope everyone had a great holiday! I will be back soon!!
This was taken Christmas Eve. I heard Kayla in Audrey's room talking to her and when I walked around the corner I saw Kayla standing on the otoman talking to Audrey!

Our family! I think this is the first picture of all of us together!

This was so cute to watch, Kayla was showing Audrey how to go through and pull out everything in her stocking!

It's an MP3 player!

I will be back soon with pics of layouts and more to share!

I was pleasantly surprised to see that you blogged! :) The girls looked like they had so much fun. Glad to hear that you guys had a good Christmas. Give me a "holler" if you wanna scrapbook sometime.
