Christmas and New Years

I feel like this holiday break went really fast this year. Is it just me or does it go by faster the older you get?
 
I have been working this break, so having a child home from school with two parents working from home has been a challenge. I took Avery to a local church with a huge playground and free WiFi so I could work and she could play. I will be doing this again, for sure!
 

 
We spent a lot of time hanging out in our comfy clothes with our beautiful dogs.


 
Colbi also got to come spend the night, which we loved. Mom took them to a Polar Express event at the library so they spent all day in their jammies. We took them out to eat and then to look at Christmas lights. They sang and sang and fought and played. Just like sisters.


 
We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at Gigi and Pops and apparently, I took no pictures on my phone...mom of the year, right here. We had a great time and the girls loved to play (and fight) with their new toys.

 
We watched a lot of TV this break, but a lot of new things like ballet and some movies we haven't seen before. (By the way, Malificent is awesome!)

 
Jason and I went to a friend's wedding. It was freezing this day and Avery got to spend the night at Gigi and Pops house. She wore a new Christmas gift which is adorable.
 
It was a beautiful wedding with a beautiful couple. I love sharing days like that with people.







 
We didn't have the kids for Christmas this year, so they came over on Sunday afternoon and opened presents immediately after they walked in the door. Jordan is going to be 13 this year (wha???) and has been incredibly responsible with the electronics he already has, so we decided to get him a Wii for his room.


Sophia got several toys, but also got a Roku in her room.



 
We drove down to San Antonio that evening and spent a few days with Nawni, Poppy, Faith, Scotty, and the boys.
 

 
I think this is the first picture I've taken of just the four of them since Jason and I have been together!

 
And of course, the selfie with all 13 of us!!

 
On New Years, we had our annual Sunday school class gathering at our house. It was an ugly sweater theme, and since I wasn't about to try and find 5 sweaters, I decided to make a few and make them all matching!!!
 
 
So now, for the next few days, we are spending a few non-planned days at home, hanging out with each other and enjoying each other's company. Have a good last few days of break!!
