Christmas 2015

We had our Candlelight Christmas service at church... this is one of my favorite services of the entire year!

Eli and Olivia saw Santa. They were both a little in awe.

Christmas eve steak dinner at Nana and Papa's house. The Littles are ready for their presents. 

Christmas fun at Nana's

Christmas Day we had brunch at our house with my family and then went to Josh's parents. Josh found a maggot in a Mr. Goodbar.. if you are wondering what that picture is to the right. Olivia loves her Pawpaw.. she pets him so sweetly. 

A few Christmas pictures. I had to document our endless Christmas wardrobe. 

I couldn't decide which dress so she wore one for morning church service and the other for the candlelight service.

We celebrated after Christmas with our friends the Ellis's. Jolly fun!

December 2015

I love decorating for Christmas. It's such a pain dragging all the boxes out but when it's finished... ahhh.
Christmas is coming!

Olivia warming herself on the heated tiles while I get ready. 

Josh and I took our Isaac and our niece, Kristin snowboarding. I snowboarded the first 5 hours and skied the last 3. I am so sore!

My big boy

He shaved his mustache.. FINALLY!

We hosted our Annual Christmas gathering while our friend, Jonathan was in town. It's always such fun seeing everyone

Happy Anniversary 2014

Josh and I had a stay-cation this year for our anniversary. My mom kept all 3 kiddos and we had the house to our self. It was super relaxing and nice to sleep in without little people climbing on my face at 7am.  Friday night we went to dinner and a movie with friends. Saturday, we slept in, drove the Parkway, toured a winery, hiked to one of our favorite spots in Linville Gorge, shopped in Blowing Rock, ate dinner and came home. Our anniversary falls during peak leaf season and all accommodations quickly get filled this time of year. 

Beautiful creation
We saw one group of backpackers leaving as we were hiking in. Other than that it was just us the entire time which was nice!

Happy Anniversary Joshua

Frozen on Ice

We took Eli and Olivia to Greensboro to see Frozen on Ice. Isaac opted out and stayed with his cousin Gabe.  I must say it was marvelous! Just seeing the characters and song that we know by heart on ICE nonetheless. It was pretty amazing. The kids loved it. We picked up our niece Allie from UNCG and she went with us. Olivia was mesmerized.
